Pride is alive again
For two seconds
American flags are found
In the wreckage
Hood ornaments made up
Of stripes and stars
Cans of red, white and blue
Paint for your cars

Praying to God for the
First time in years
Jesus is your savior
To alleviate your fears
But the smoke has cleared
And the flags have come down
So what happened now?
Are you not still proud?

An American for that time and place
Watching TV with a horrified face
Salute the flag for a moment or two
But so quickly, you forget
You’re just a hypocrite, like most of the others
For a couple of months, we treated all like our brothers
But prejudice has strolled back in
And instead of the enemies, it’s ourselves we’re attacking

9-1-1, no help to dial
Pit of our stomach, seems so vile
Proud of our country, turn the dial
On every channel for a while
CNN, Bin Laden
Over and over again
Airport security
Increased and race profiling

Accepted, not accepting
To judge based on what one’s wearing
But understood, it’s for good
Might have bomb under that hood
Person win award, God bless America
Instant applause from the hypocritical
Who only months before, you could see
At demonstrations, flag-burning

An American for that time and place
Watching TV with a horrified face
Salute the flag for a moment or two
But so quickly, you forget
You’re just a hypocrite, like most of the others
For a couple of months, we treated all like our brothers
But prejudice has strolled back in
And instead of the enemies, it’s ourselves we’re attacking

I’ll admit, from the beginning
I wasn’t much of an American
But to see all these people rush out
And act like they love this country, so suddenly
Those flags hanging, they’ve all come down
The ones that were before, yeah, well, they’re still around
As much as the next guy, I hope those bastards
That caused all that pain on the day
Suffer for what they’ve done
Even more than the victims and their families
It’s a day that will live in infamy
But people, just be true to your beliefs
It’s demeaning to pretend to love America when it’s popular to do so
And once its over, to go back to your indifferent ways

An American for that time and place
Watching TV with a horrified face
Salute the flag for a moment or two
But so quickly, you forget
You’re just a hypocrite, like most of the others
For a couple of months, we treated all like our brothers
But prejudice has strolled back in
And instead of the enemies, it’s ourselves we’re attacking
