Round we go
Living in a carnival of compromise
All we know
Is decorating flags and choosing sides
Round and round
Accusations fly
Holding ground
In the name of father knows not why

We're still counting pride in lives
All that I know is I

Don't believe in mother England divine
I don't believe imaginary lines
I don't believe in brothers bound by the soil
In the end it's a solitary world

Falling in
Everyone agrees it's suicide
They're off again
It's condemnation time

Still no one seems surprised
All that I know is I

Don't believe in mother England divine
I don't believe imaginary lines
I don't believe in brothers bound by the soil
In the end it's a solitary world

Condemnation time
( I don't believe in mother )
( I don't believe in mother )

I don't believe in mother......

You say that God is on your side
All that I know is I

Don't believe in mother England divine
I don't believe imaginary lines
I don't believe in brothers bound by the soil
In the end it's a solitary world

Don't believe in mother England divine
I don't believe imaginary lines
I don't believe in brothers bound by the soil
In the end it's a solitary world

    General CommentSpeaking of Mother England, from what I recall Curt stating in an interview, it isn't about a dislike for England, it's about carrying nationalism too far. Basically, it's speaking out against a belief like "America: Love it or Leave it." and that blind faith in one's country as being perfect is a poor decision. If your country behaves poorly (radiation experiments on an unsuspecting public, killing offthe elderly and disabled, etc.) you shouldn't continue to believe that your country is still perfect. - Travis Sonsalla
