The Lyrics

Well, I was born an American
My rose colored glasses told me life was nice
Now I'm grief stricken, sobbing with my head on the floor
Stopped my very breath, that attack from the skies, oh

We all know who's responsible
Ashes fell in our face
We all know who's responsible
For this crime against the human race

For the life of me I cannot consider
What made them think that they were wise, bringing death out of the skies
For the life of me I do not believe they'll get away with their sins
We are still Americans

Our best friends may be gone, those who died on nine/eleven
It's been a whole year since we laid them to rest
Now we're grief stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
Think about them now and they were our nation's best, I said

We all know who's responsible
Ashes fell in our face
We still hold them responsible
For this crime against the human race

For the life of me I cannot consider
What made them think that we were wise, bringing death out of the skies
For the life of me I do not believe they'll get away with their sins
We are still Americans

They tried to wash their hands of all of this
They tried to kill the US spirit, but it was a miss
And though we're guilt stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
We rose up to fight on our Navy battleships, we said

"We still know who's responsible
For all the deaths on that day.
We ALL know who's responsible
No way in hell that you'll get away!"

For the life of me I cannot consider
What made them think that we were wise, bringing death out of the skies
For the life of me I do not believe they'll get away with their sins
We are still Americans

For the life of me I cannot consider
What made them think that we were wise, causing innocents to die
For the life of me I truly believe we will avenge all our friends
We are still Americans
We are still Americans
We'll always be Americans
