It’s 9:11 in the morning
Time to wake it up
The day came with no warning
There was no time to make it up
As the bell rings
And wakes us from our dreams
The last thing we see
Is the land of the free

It’s 9:11 in the morning
The day has broken loud and clear
And the silence is so alarming
As it echoes in my ear
Angels shake their wings
And try to shake us from our dreams
The last thing that we see
Is the land of the free

When fear is on the lips of everyone we hear
We forget who we are and what we’re doing here …Hey! Hey! Hey!

It’s 9:11 in the morning and we’ve slept too late
The bus has come and gone and now it’s walk or wait
It’s 9:11 in the morning and there’s such a fuss
They’re saying global warming is going to be the death of us

There’s no more room for error and there’s no more room for blame
There’s no more room for terror and there’s no more room for shame …Hey! Hey! Hey!

Who will step forward? Who will speak for us?
Who will risk it all for that seat on the bus?
