That morning he called hurriedly
Come here, look what's happened, do you see. ...
She just stared in shock and disbelief
A plane crashed, and crashed repeatedly.
No turning away from the TV
They couldn't speak for a long time
In horror, knowing people had died
He comforted her. She shook her head.
How many more innocents dead?
Then she said, We committed this crime.
