Such a pity...
Looking upon the burning mess
A tear seeps out of my eye
Such horrible pain they all must have felt
But it's not for them - I cry
People dying of all ages
Crashing, tumbling, falling down
The smell of flesh smelt in the air
Deafning screams all around
The taste of bittersweet death fills the sky
Load the dead into a pile
Crying and mourning over lost loved ones
My lips slowly form to a smile
I cry because I'm so relieved
To see all this suffering and pain
Capture all the bloody tourment
To watch all the people insane
Feel what it's like to live in my head
Feel the blistering sting
And wonder how I could feel this way
To gain pleasure off such a thing
Well fuck you America, red white and blue
And fuck your pitiful god
Fuck all you people who pretend to care
Hiding beneath your facade
If only I could have been there
To see all these things that I say
To watch all those people grieve and succumb
It would make my fucking day.

Although we share the same name i would not write something i like that. I rated it high because you did get an expression of feeling in there. It touched me actually

C'mon, Lisa, you really don't mean this. What if you knew someone involved? I'm sure you wouldn't have felt the same.
