"God And Country" as written by Hutch Harris, Kathleen Foster and Jordan Hudson....
pray for a new age
pray for information
i can hope, see
even if i don't believe

pray for a new state
pray for communication
i can hope, see
even if i don't believe

and
i believe
i think
i don't know

history will show
our progress is slow
when we win
we win in inches

the future deaf
so the few left
will need a fist
when no one will listen

know where we stand
know we pay the man
it's my flag
it's my flag

know i'm not kneeling
know what i'm feeling
my god above
or total lack of

but
i lack...

i think...
i don't know

my faith is barren
i don't believe the prayer
and it's not a sin
and it's not opinion

know i'm a man
know where i stand
in an affront
to god and country

pray for a new state
pray for assassination
i can hope, see?
even if i don't believe

and
i believe
i think

    General CommentI think this song means to think for oneself in America. The song title suggests the relationship between church and state in America... And how we need to change the state? It's also got a pessimistic outlook on humans... "

    when we win

    General CommentThis is one of the few songs they do that is pretty straightforward. They are asking for an end to the current political situation and suggesting it may be difficult to get out of.

    "pray for a new state
    pray for assassination
    i can hope, see? "

    That would help I guess.

    General CommentI first paid attention to the lyrics on my last birthday, Nov. 4, 2004. As I was mulling over the early b-day present I'd been given two nights earlier, let's just say screaming along with these lyrics at the top of my lungs as i herded my car down the road was very cathartic.

    Special note to the Secret Service, or anyone who might see this courtesy of Echelon or whatever else is out there:

    I do not endorse any form of actual violence towards the US government or its officeholders ;)

    General CommentMe neither. I guess their new album out in August is way more political than their first two.

    General CommentI think its pretty clearly about his resentment that the government has a christian agenda.

    General CommentWhen we win we win in inches.


    HOLY CRAP. I rewind and play rewind and play that line. Intense.

    It's my flag
    It's my flag

    The government listens to me, I run the government, I am above the man, they can't control us if we don't allow ourselves to fall under the illusion that we are less powerful than the people we elect.

    BAM.YES.

    wow....it just amps me up. I wanna go protest shit and what not....
