“Heaven Nine Eleven”

(written by Frank Hannon)


Tell me why there's so much pain today

Taking lives is for their gain, or so they say

I can't believe it but they feel this way

And that's the way of the world

Tell me why it takes a tragedy to see

To wake us up, and bring us down to our knees

All the people suffering with disease

And that's the way, that's the way

That's the weight of the world

As the world crashes down, heaven's looking better everyday

As the sun burns the ground, there's gotta be another way

Is our God looking down, and does he feel everybody's pain

As the world crashes down, Heaven's looking better everyday

Teach the children what it means to love

Show them, why now, we can never give enough

Let's work together, we can rise above

And change the ways, change the ways

Change the ways of the world

As the world crashes down, heaven's looking better everyday

As the sky turns to brown, there's gotta be another way

Is our God looking down, and does he feel everybody's pain

As the world crashes down, Heaven's looking better everyday

As the world crashes down, heaven's looking better everyday

As the sun burns the ground, there's gotta be another way

Is our God looking down, and does he feel everybody's pain

As the world crashes down, Heaven's looking better everyday



SWEET & LYNCH

“September”

(written by Michael Sweet and George Lynch)


We woke to find the sky was turning black

Our frozen minds could not comprehend

On that bitter day there'd be no turning back

The wound never heals, the scar doesn't mend

No...

Do you remember?

Eleven September

We still feel the embers

In the cold of December

We stood in awe glued to the images

As the towers fall, a new world begins

We lost our peace and misplaced our privileges

But we gained our pride in the name of the twins

Oh...

Do you remember?

Eleven September

We still feel the embers

In the cold of December

“OK, Let’s Roll”

(written by Tracii Guns, Phil Lewis, Steve Riley, and Adam Hamilton)


United Airlines Flight 93

Left 8:01 from gate 17

The victims of a war, they never knew existed

Hell looked them in the eye and still they resisted

Lost brave souls your courage we remember

Sacrificed young lives, Black September

We still hear your battle cry

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

So began the massacre at twenty thousand feet

Red Devils lead the charge, pulled the captain from his seat

They watched them cut and slash at anyone left standing

We knew deep in our hearts, this plane would not be landing

Never once were they ever in control

Lives were lost but they never took our soul

We still hear your battle cry

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

Skies of Pennsylvania became a battle ground

Two hundred miles away, the towers had come down

One last chance to say goodbye, he called her on his phone

Said he knew what must be done, "I am not coming home"

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll

Are you ready? Ok, let's roll



W.A.S.P.

“Hallowed Ground”

(written by Blackie Lawless)


Come and take me down the dark beyond

And take me there where I come from

Take me down to the place where I'll kneel

And let me lay my shadow down

In through the eyes of a child's inner me

No pain to heal my bloodied brow

There is no rain to save this silent town

There is no rain to save at all

There is no place to save this silent ground

There is no place to save at all

Oh Father take me unto where I'll lay me down

On hallowed ground

Oh the sky is falling and I don't know where my home is now

My hallowed ground

Oh and can you take me for I have tasted hallowed ground

Oh all around

Father, oh do you hear me?

This pain I will not cry aloud

Oh Father, I know you hear me

My head is bludgeoned but unbowed, oh

Oh Father take me unto where I'll lay me down

On hallowed ground

Oh the sky is falling and I don't know where my home is now

My hallowed ground
