Christine DeLeon: SONG CLIPS & LYRICS

Where Are They Now

(Christine DeLeon)
(9/11 is a day that will live in infamy. I was (and got out of) the heart of it. I'm thankful for the angel who carried me out of harm's way.)
It’s very hard to say that I fled
I was seated as the morning crashed over my head
Torn from the skies as I summarized
What happened … Who did this … How long in between
Fifteen minutes we held on our hope
Through our horrible losses and settled for damage control
But soon it was clear we’re living in fear

Of the misguided souls aiming at borrowed goals
They fell with the innocent but where are they now

Would they ever believe that we are all the same
They cried “Justice!” and they searched for someone to blame
But tearing that down no promised land found
So why then would they spend a ransom so high
They were told there would be a reward
It can’t be anything special – not anything I would look toward
The Kingdom at hand not buried in sand

They were misguided souls aiming at borrowed goals
They chased down an emptiness but where are they now
Living their promised grace or spitting on flames of waste
Misguided souls, where did they go

My song is misguided my story one-sided
But I’d learn to love not as they to hate
I don’t want to share in their wished-upon fate
Misguided souls where did they go
From what I know of both the Pillars of Five
And the Ten on the mountain
There is nothing more precious than life

Though the misguided souls aiming at borrowed goals
Took to our skies and shattered our lives
And we must make our vow to pray for those souls somehow
Misguided souls, where did they go
Where are they now
