[ Our hearts go out to the victims of the disasters of September 11, 2001
and to their families, loved ones and friends. ]

Breakfast, then sleep:
normal flight on a typical day,
when a harsh voice shatters my dream
all about my wife & my daughters.
Herded like sheep,
we're all pushed to the back of the plane.
But, we'd no idea at the time
it was for a purposeful slaughter.

"Do what we say
and nobody is going to get hurt."
Some of us believed in that lie
'til we found the truth on our cell phones.
Sure, I'm afraid.
But there's no way to make it much worse.
Maybe if we tackle these guys,
we can stop them reaching their end zone.

    IF WE'RE GOING DOWN,
    then we're not going down in vain.
    This plane may very well crash,
    but it's not going to be their way.
    IF WE'RE GOING DOWN,
    then we're going to have some say.
    We're going to take our destiny in our hands.

Him with the bomb:
he's the first that we'd better take out.
Maybe fake or maybe for real,
better get him out of the picture.
Each has a job
and no time for a moment of doubt.
Only God and heaven can tell
who will fin'lly come out the victor.

    CHORUS

        One way or another,
        there's a good chance that we might die-.
        I'd rather not just sit right here,
        'cause I sure won't enjoy the ride.
        One way or another,
        I would rather go with pride-,
        knowing I did my very best
        to help save a lot more lives.

    CHORUS

        As I finish a prayer
        for strength for whatever unfolds,
        a whispered voice from one of us here :
        "Are you guys ready? Let's roll."

    CHORUS

9-11-01:
Several conflicting reports at the time held that United Flight 93
was shot down by an Air Force jet to prevent the terrorist-
controlled plane from reaching the White House or Capitol.
The controversial documentary Loose Change stated that the debris
field & crash site in Shanksville, PA, were inconsistent with reality.
The final report of the 9-11 Commission concluded that the
actual occurrences onboard (
supported by cockpit voice recordings)
concurred with the scenario in the song above, written within days
after the disaster.
