The Lyrics

Putting a piece of musical history in current context.
They were cowards in the sky
Their leaders hide while followers die
Face to face, they run away
Terrorists, it's time to pay

Hundreds of souls, put to the test
Remember them, America's best
Four thousand strong, you killed that day
And now it's time, you start to pray

We're one nation, from many lands
We solve problems, hand in hand
We will rebuild, working night and day
Terrorists, it's time to pay

Hundreds of souls, put to the test
Remember them, America's best
Four thousand strong, you killed that day
And now it's time, you start to pray

Back at home America waits
Too many of them have met their fate
Some sacrificed for those in need
From the rest of us, this urgent plea

Hundreds of souls, put to the test
Remember them, America's best
Four thousand strong, you killed that day
And now it's time, you start to pray
