(Chorus)
We are America
And we stand in unity
We are America
We're the home of the brave
We are the land of the free

(Verse 1)
It was the eleventh of September
A day I'm sure that we will long remember
We were barely out of bed
In disbelief of what was said
But we were knocked down to our knees
By what we saw on our TV's
I watched events unfold from miles away
Helpless to do anything but pray
And so while still there on my knees
I cried out, "Dear Lord please,
Stretch forth your mighty hand
And bring healing to this land!"
Because...

(Chorus)
We are America
And we stand for liberty
We are America
We're the home of the brave
We are the land of the free

(Verse 2)
Not since back in 1941
Had such an evil deed to us been done
With such tragic loss of life
Someone's husband, some man's wife
These were folks like you and I
Who were not supposed to have to die
Since then many days have come and gone
But our memories of that day will still live on
And may our fight to right this wrong
Also serve to make us strong
In our will and determination
To restore this mighty nation
Because...

(Chorus)
We are America
And we stand in unity
We are America
We're the home of the brave
We are the land of the free
We are America
And we stand for liberty
We are America
We're the home of the brave
We are the land of the free

(Ending rap)
United we stand
Divided we fall
But we're not divided
We're united
So we stand tall
