Our Towers

This song is by Phil Keaggy and appears on the album Uncle Duke (2000).

They took away our towers
On a calm September day
They killed our New York Families
And turned our hearts to clay

Oh, they took away our towers
We saw them coming down
-The Taliban, the Taliban
Evil deeds by evil men
A gang of faceless clowns

Well, they took away our towers
And left a dusty hole
The skyline changed forever
But they cannot have our soul

And from the dusty rubble
Rise the ones we hold so dear
To a higher place in a brighter space
As our freedom bell rings clear
It's our freedom bell you hear, you hear

They took away our towers
The heartache yet remains
On the steel we place our flowers
Hold hands and sing refrains

Oh, they took away our towers
A symbol of our success
They cannot take our faith in God
For that we're truly blessed

Oh, they took away our towers
The tallest shadows gone
And where the shadows used to be
The birds still sing their song

And from the dusty rubble
Rise the ones we hold so dear
To a higher place in a brighter space
As our freedom bell rings clear
It's our freedom bell you hear

Oh, freedom
Oh, freedom

They took away our towers
The reason seems obscure
Those faceless men with yellow hearts
Will justice be the cure?

They took away our towers
And we ask the question, "Why?"
And the lives now gone forever
Have ascended to the sky

Well, they took away our towers
A cowardly cunning dread
Such an insane and twisted plot
But together we forge ahead

And from the dusty rubble
Rise the ones we hold so dear
To a higher place in a brighter space
As our freedom bell rings clear
It's our freedom bell you hear

And from the towers rubble
Rise the ones we hold so dear
To a higher place in a brighter space
As our freedom bell rings clear
It's our freedom bell we hear

Freedom
Oh, freedom
Oh, freedom
Freedom
