Heroes of Nine-Eleven
Could not believe what I had seen,
All the horror and the killing.
How could anyone so cruel have been?
As if lives weren't worth a shilling.
But for each of those who destroyed,
A hundred heroes rose to save.
Ev'ry art and skill they employed,
Making sacrifices so brave.
Risking life and limb they went in,
To do ev'ry thing that they could.
And battles with death they did win,
As we always knew that they would.
And let us not ever forget,
The other victory that day.
Those who decided not to let,
The mad destroyers have their way.
Those heroic souls who fought back,
May they live on in memory.
The brave ones who thwarted attack,
Of United ninety-three.
The mourning came but never went,
It's going on to this day.
But in this war we'll not relent,
Nor let terror have its way.
