"A song in the aftermath of September 11" - Rod MacDonald
My neighbors in Delray ate on Federal Highway
there's a waitress at Denny's who remembers
they had loud conversations and hit on all the waitresses
and they weren't very good tippers
My neighbors in Delray went to Miami one day
worked out on a flight simulator
then my neighbors in Delray stole a plane bound for L.A.
flew it into the World Trade Center

My neighbors in Delray went to the gym every day
rented a condo, studied to be pilots
they had rental cars, cell phones, used the library computers in town
struck out with girls in local nightspots
but my neighbors in Delray hated the American Way
and lived only to die for a heaven
where virgins train to serve and Allah is observed
gratefully awaiting to reward them

"Love thy neighbor," the Bible says
"God is great," the prophets say
wouldn't I love to know what God will say
to my neighbors in Delray.

My neighbors in Delray came from countries far away
and lived here freely among us
they studied all the ways of the good ol' USA
thinking of ways to destroy us
and my neighbors in Delray got on their knees and prayed
for the strength to leave life behind them
so my neighbors in Delray wouldn't be around to pay
the price for all of their victims

"Love thy neighbor," the Bible says
"God is great," the prophets say
wouldn't you love to know what God will say
to my neighbors in Delray.

My neighbors in Delray well I really couldn't say
I would even recognize them
walking thru the mall, or anywhere at all
I know my other neighbors all despise them
somewhere far away they don't care what the neighbors say
so they would only criticize me
but if my neighbors in Delray are in Paridise today
it would very much surprise me.

"Love thy neighbor," the Bible says
"God is great," the prophets say
don't you really know what God will say
to my neighbors in Delray.
