On a day that dawned with promise, death dropped
from the sky.
And I didnít even know it. Later all the stations showed
As the world watched, with tears in itís eyes.
The call came in for back up, and we ran as duty called.
Through the crowded streets we flew, while the winds of
around us, as we reached the scene appalled.
Fly away home, thatís where they wanted to be.
Instead they earned a footnote in the pages of history.
And they went home. Fly away home.
As the dust did settle, we went in to do our job.
I sifted through the rubble, and I found your body
where youíd fallen, trampled by the mobs.
Fly away home, thatís where you thought you would
But how youíre just a victim, of that day of infamy..
And you went home. Fly away home.
I reached down to lift you, thinking how life wasnít
Then the walls came crashing down. And Iím trapped now
on the ground.
Under tons of metal, running out of air.
Fly away home, thatís where I wish I could be.
And if youíre not too far ahead, would you please wait
Iím going home. Fly away home. Away home. Home. Away
Home. Away Home.
