What Did You Expect

Story Behind The Song

9/11 happened when we weren't watching. 9/11 happened when we thought no one would dare attack us on our soil. Our arrogance as a nation that we were ultimately safe from outside threats, comes from years of erosion of our society being responsible, stand

Verse 1
You're looking around you you're looking in fear
You're asking yourself how in the world did we get here?
Is God still watching? Does God still care?
Don't think he's gone because of your unanswered prayer
He created this world for us to live in
It's up to us to do what's right
(We turn out backs we pass the blame it's time for winds of change)

When you're running out of pride
What did U Xpect would come from greed and lies
You can see it in our eyes our arrogance is costing lives
But What Did U Xpect

Verse 2
You think you're right even when you're wrong
You don't know you're in trouble until you're too far gone
You're raising our children ignoring your own
The leader of nations gets his pleasures on the throne
No guns - is that the real answer
When no one fears to face the law
(We can't do this we can't say that our feelings aren't under attack)

When you're running out of pride
They're not afraid to strike in the broad daylight
Unless we gather and unite they think that we're afraid to fight
But What Did U Xpect

It's never your fault there's someone to blame
You've got more money so you win the game
Don't do what's right couse someone will sue
It's not about me it's all about you
The world looks in and what do they see
All we want is something for free
They slap our face no leaders care
