As the smoke danced around the muzzle of my thoughts
My eyes were opened to behold the dismay before me
And as the souls ran, yet all for not
I quivered in fear at the thought of their eternity
Cognitions fired from synapse to synapse
My legs gave out beneath me
And as the structures began their fiery collapse
I joined with those who were weeping
"The center of trade is falling!"
And the skyline forever stained
Many asnwered the calling
While others cried His name
The enemy prowls outside the door
We stand united until the grave
Vigilantly remained forever more
The land of the free, home of the brave.
