On  Day World Stood Still song lyrics:  911, 9-11-01 NY World Trade Center Pentagon terrorists. MickTerry YouTube YouTube,  performed  LIVE  by  MICK TERRY   (soon!)

In a state of shock and horror,
we woke to the breaking news.
Where there had been two strong towers,
there now was just pure destruction.
In shock and horror,
they're both nearly sliced in two.
And there, before our very eyes,
they crumble to the ground.

    WHERE WERE YOU
    when the sky crashed down,
    when the whole world froze,
    when the end was now?
    WHERE WERE YOU
    when the sky crashed down,
    THE DAY THE WORLD STOOD STILL?

We would see these scenes repeated
throughout all the coming days.
Even with eyes shut in sleeping,
it's hard to escape the nightmare.
These scenes repeated
may never just go away.
The planes, the flames, the smoke, the dust,
the people falling down.

    CHORUS

        Terror hits home & way too close for comfort.
        Terror hits home. Man's insanity to man.
        Terror hits home. We'd always been so buffered.
        Never before, & vowing never again.

Maybe this was what we needed
to shock us onto our feet,
so that we won't be defeated
by enemies without borders.
Did what we needed
need all of these tragedies?
The deaths, the pain, the orphaned lives?
There's something needed now.

    CHORUS

        As God receives our open prayers,
        a never-ending call,
        one nation under siege,
        with liberty and justice for ...
