NineOneOne (Never Again).

NineOneOne (Never Again).

We never saw it coming,
We never tho’t it could be,
Then suddenly on NineOneOne,
It was crumbling at our feet,
The police and fire departments,
Did everything they know,
Like a hero in our darkness,
They were bravely the first to go,

O’, NineOneOne,
It was to me,
A beginning as much as an end,
Beginning to see on NineOneOne,
We can never let it happen again,

The mayor of New York City,
Congress and the President,
The governor of Pennsylvania,
Cried thru’ the whole event,
O’, the terror in their faces,
The freedom that came undone,
What we didn’t learn from Oklahoma,
We must learn from NineOneOne,

O’, NineOneOne,
It was to me,
A beginning as much as an end,
Beginning to see on NineOneOne,
We can never let it happen again,

It was a day like any other,
Or so it seemed to be,
But when time struck NineOneOne,
NineOneOne struck me,

O’, NineOneOne,
It was to me,
A beginning as much as an end,
Beginning to see on NineOneOne,
We can never let it happen again,

O’, what we didn’t learn from Oklahoma,
We must learn from NineOneOne,

What we didn’t learn from Dhahran,
We must learn from NineOneOne,

O’, what we didn’t learn from our embassies,
We must learn from NineOneOne,

What we didn’t learn from the U.S.S. Cole,
We must learn from NineOneOne,

O’, NineOneOne,
It was to me,
A beginning as much as an end,
Beginning to see on NineOneOne,
We can never let it happen again,
We can never let it happen again,

O’, never,
O’, NineOneOne,
Never, o’, never again.
