America Strikes Back

When our country is threatened what do we do?  Rely on our nation to see us through.
          We were attacked, slapped in the face, yet we unite regardless of race.
          Three planes destroy precious lives & land, does our destiny lie in our hand?
          We cannot plan for such a thing, but we will let freedom ring.
          We have a message for those over seas, "We will not be brought to our knees!"  Call a promise a threat if you may, America will have her day.  Her wrath will be heard world wide and my words will be your guide.
          We will come land, sea, and air and crush all when we get there.  It will be a time of retaliation when we invade another nation.
          Did they think we'd let this go?  Or were so blind we would not know?
          Through terrorist strikes we've all felt pain, but our honor was not stain.
          The things that make this nation great will not be our ending fate.  The morals of the USA will not lead this world astray.
          So try as they may, try as they might, they'll be in for one hell of a fight.
