City At Night

No shadows from the lights above

No single car in sight

There’s a scary sound of silence

While the city sleeps tonight

The subway trains are resting

And the harbor water still

The park reclaimed by nature

Bending to the moonlights will

The lady watches over us

With torch and focused eye

She’ll keep us safe from evil

Until morning light draws nigh

She still remembers last time

And dares all to roll the dice

They fooled her in 2001

But they’ll never fool her twice

If America is a living thing

And the city is the heart

You strike at it with all your might

It will not tear apart

When thousands died, a million cried

And swore they’d find a way

Returning sounds of silence

When the sunlight goes away
