9/11

 

9-11, EMERGENCY SOME WILL SAY,

BUT NO ONE WILL FORGET THAT SEPTEMBER DAY.

 

WHEN THE NATION WAS DELIVERED

SUCH A VIOLENT BLOW,

WHEN THE STRONGEST PEOPLE AND THE BRAVEST

SOULS RISKED THEIR LIVES TO GO BELOW.

 

THE CRASHING TOWERS FALLING DOWN

SPREADING SADNESS ALL AROUND.

 

WE FELT BRAVERY FOR THOSE WHO KNEW THE COST,

AND WE FELT SADNESS

FOR ALL THE ONES WE HAD LOST.

 

BUT OUT OF THE RUBBLE ROSE WINGS OF HOPE

MAYBE SOMEDAY WE WILL ALL BE ABLE TO COPE.

 

BUT UNTIL THAT DAY WE ALL WILL GRIEVE AND

DEAL WITH A MEMORY THAT WILL NEVER LEAVE.

 

FOR OUR ANSWERS WE TOOK TO THE HEAVENS AND

DEALT WITH THE PAIN OF SEPTEMBER 11TH.

NEVER FORGET

A FLAG OF HONOR, A FLAG FOR REFLECTION

IT STANDS FOR US ALL UNITING OUR NATION 

IT WILL KEEP IN OUR MINDS THIS TRAGIC DAY,

MEMORIES OF SUCH HEROIC ACTS SHALL NOT GO AWAY.

AS WE LOOK ON THIS FLAG OF CLOTH AND THREAD,

A FIELD OF BRIGHT RED FOR THE BLOOD THAT WAS SHED,

NOT JUST ON THIS DAY OF LASTING MEMORIES,

BUT FOR LIVES THAT WERE GIVEN THRU OUT HISTORY.

TWO TOWERS OF STRENGTH THAT ROSE UP SO HIGH

REACHING FOR DREAMS, THEY STRETCHED TO THE SKY.

THEY LAY NOW IN RUIN AT THE HANDS OF HATE,

GREAT SYMBOLS OF OUR NATION HAVE MET THIS FATE. 

OUR NATIONS MILITARY HOUSED IN A FORTRESS OF STEEL.

WE'RE REMINDED THIS DAY THAT WAR IS SO REAL.

HITTING THE HEART OF OUR POWER AND MIGHT,

SO RISE UP AMERICA

THIS TERROR WE MUST FIGHT.
