Back to the Airplanes

Fourteen miles on the run
Maybe it′s time we turn back
It's amazing anyone
Survived that massive attack

Eight hundred seventy thousand pounds
Take off without a care
It′s a drag how we find out
The elements that make us bare

Back to the airplanes we must go
A thousand gallons of jet fuel in the snow
The man who sat right next to me i didn't know
Might not have any feelings left to show
Twisted wreckage scraped down to the bone
Somehow even with you i feel alone

Must walk faster
Help is surely on the way
There, i can see the rescue crew!
Wave your arms, they'll see you.
I′m right here, why won′ t you help me! help me.

Back to the airplanes we must go
Dripping blood all the way through the snow
The man who sat right next to me i didn't know
Might not have any feelings left to show
Twisted wreckage scraped down to the bone
Somehow even with you i feel alone

There i lay.
Close my own eyes.
"Tray table up"
Was that my last thought?

What was my last thought?
Fade out all i′ve sought
Stare down my old face
I don't know my place.
