Events that happened on September 11th at the World Trade Center

lyrics

Dust

The canyons echo with the foot steps of ghosts
Walking side by side

In the escape we stumbled
Covered in the dust

Bodies were laid to rest
Returning to the dust

As we rebuild these walls
It’s starting with the dust

No time to think
Just running through the dust

Above our heads, the perspective has changed
It all seemed so unreal
The sunlight falls with no shadow to cast
The steel is bent but the strength remains


The resilient children play in the street
But there’s no one here to guide them
Celluloid idols have given way
To the true meaning of a child’s hero

In the escape we stumbled
Covered in the dust

Some that were laid to rest
Returning to the dust

And as we rebuild these walls
It’s starting with the dust

Bodies were laid to rest
Returning to the dust

No time to think, we’ll just roll up our sleeves
Tattered, shredded and torn
No matter the degree of our tragedy
We find our strength like history before us


Keeping company with the spirits
Of those that were never found
Just a normal day that was taken away
To this day you can hear the voices
The voices

Everyday she waits for him
To walk on thru the door

Looking out the window
They wish she was there once more

Everyday she waits for him
Covered in the dust




Everyday she waits for him
Covered in the dust
