It's the fourth of July
and I'm wasting my time outside today.
Some friends are over
and they're slurring their words
in such a charming way.

Balloons overhead, they went out to get food,
they'll be gone for hours.
Some kids just showed up
bearing a cake that says "Let Freedom Ring!"

And can you hear it ring?
Is this all we've done with it?
And we have stepped over god
because he just gets in the way.

The lights that explode
above our heads sound like rifles;
there are kids my age
across the world lying lifeless
