The Day The Towers Fell
A sad day for America
As rejoicing rang from hell,
Awakening a mighty giant
On the day the towers fell.
A sad day for America As rejoicing rang from hell, Awakening a mighty giant On the day the towers fell.
Our hearts were saddened
As we watched this vicious act unfold,
Our hearts were saddened As we watched this vicious act unfold,
As innocence met a fiery death
And seeds of war were sowed.
As innocence met a fiery death And seeds of war were sowed.
Shouts rang out from the middle east That Allah has done his good
But no god joys in faultless deaths through certain cowards could.
America just sort of glides along, But don't step on her toes ... For her belief in right and justice Will stomp out freedom's foes.

Well you hit the World Trade Center, but you missed America
You hit the Pentagon, Again you missed America
You used helpless American bodies to take out other American bodies,
but like a poor marksman, you still missed America
Why? Because of somethings you guys will never understand
America isn't about a building or two,
not about financial centers
not about military centers
America isn't about a place,
American isn't about a bunch of bodies
America is about an IDEA.
An idea that you can go someplace where you can earn as much as you can figure out how to,
live for the most part, like you envisioned living, and pursue Happiness
(no guarantees that you'll reach it, but you can sure try)!
As the soot and dirt and ash rained down,
We became one color.
As we carried each other down the stairs of the burning building
We became one class.
As we lit candles of waiting and hope
We became one generation.
As the firefighters and police officers fought their way into the inferno
We became one gender.
as we fell to our knees in prayer for strength
We became one faith.
As we whispered or shouted words of encouragement,
We spoke one language.
As we gave our blood in lines a mile long,
We became one body.
As we mourned together the great loss
We became one family.
As we cried tears of grief and loss
We became one soul
As we retell with pride of the sacrifice of heroes
We became one people.
