Lyrics
The last time I saw my Father,he was on TV.
Running into a burning building,that's the last of him I'd see.
From out of the chaos,smoke and debris.
One nation under God standing proud and free.

I remember 9-11
My only father I his only son.
I can't forget those tears i cried,
It was the day my Daddy died.

In the days that followed ,we shared in our grief.
Laid our dead to rest and found it was hard to sleep.
Thank God for our troops,they were able to see,
The road to freedom is paved in blood
and it will always be,

I remember 9-11
My only father I his only son.
I can't forget those tears i cried,
It was the day my Daddy died.

"A plane has crashed into the upper floors of the world
trade center"

"The world trade center tower #1 is on fire"

"Send every avalible ambulance ----everything you got
to the World trade center NOW!"

"Calling the 1st divition... Divition 1"

"Calling divition #1"

"Command I can't get him on the radio right now"

"10-4"

"We have a number of floors on fire
It looked like the plane was aiming toward the building"

My son now in uniform serves his nation with pride.
For his country and our flag he would fight and die.
Don't forget the day the towers fell
And all the families,who now rest at ground zero.
We need to remember when it was 9-11....
It was 9-11
Don't let your children forget about 9-11

Tribute
Nice weaving of radio comments. It brings an immediacy that a singer cannot capture.

Thank you, indeed.

I remember listening through a few hours of archive radio material to find the appropriate ones, and feeling so emotionally drained.

Strong imagery in the lyric. Very strong vocals, like the phrasing & intonation. The radio clips are really effective.

Thanks Vic
Appreciate the comments man...

I was playing the dirty guitar thruogh a RP-250 Multi-FX Pedal..I had it programed to emulate a "Big Muff Pi"stomp box,with some lexicon reverb and a tad of compression at the end of the chain.
Glad you like it,,,I thought it worked pretty well with the humbucker pup on my squier 51.

memories
It was afternoon over here when the attack started, I was on a two hour drive back from the coast when the first announcement came on the car radio and we thought it had been a tragic accident. By the time I got home the second tower had been hit and i watched the TV for next 5 hours and couldn't believe what I was watching. A really powerful evocation of the events on that tragic day and personalising it made it even more powerful. Just superb and a pice to be very proud of. mark

I remember it was a beautiful clear day here in the Southeast USA and where I work people were walking outside and looking up at the sky wondering if the worst was going to happen here next....Thanks for sharing your thoughts ,and thanks again for the comments.

Great feel and a super tribute. Excellent lyrics and I really like the vocals. This is a well written and played tune.The only comment is maybe a little more variation on the drums... even a few cymbal hits would help. Good guitar sounds!
Cheers

Tight production, good vocals - are you a Rush fan, by any chance? The song has a similar feel (which is a compliment, just in case you're not a fan!)

Man, the lyrics are so well written, they almost make me too emotional to listen to the song. I like how the beat and chords are positive; otherwise, I would be tearing up through the whole tune!
