Wave your flag, tell me I'm free
It's all for nothing if you know your history
Empires fall, kingdoms burn
How long will it be before it is our turn?

You're a tool of government oppression
A fixture in a long procession
Of caskets full of people who thought their government was right
Patriotism is extortion
The propaganda is a lie
For their cause I refuse to kill or die

Take a stand, raise your voice
It's up to you to stand up and make a choice
Freedom or death, I choose dissent
I won't be a martyr for a corrupt government

As you wave your flag the bombs come down
Destroying families, lives and towns
While a man with blood-stained pockets lines his wallet in DC
I will not participate
In a system based on hate
War for peace is not the way for me
