They say you're in the blood so you're runnin' through whatever is in your veins...
Sew the pages shut, sew the pages so the colors still look the same.
I say let 'em run, I say let the colors run through your Souther Hands.
And I could be a fist cause I wanna be an American...

We took the chains off...
But kept the rebels.
for the world, the flesh, and your devil.

Show me all your love, show me open all the calvary in my name
Raise it like a flag, raise it on the gallows if there's a price they'll pay
So give me all your grace, give me all the good you crown with your Southern Hands..
and I could be a fist cause I wanna be an American

We took the chains off...
But kept the rebels
for the world, the flesh, and your devil.

Hate the hand on my heart, you swept it under the flag
you stoop so low..
smile, generals make the cross federal but my
God doesn't believe in America... ha ha

We took the chains off...
But kept the rebels.
For the world, the flesh, and your devil.

    General CommentIt starts off with "There's soil in the blood soil running through whatever is in your veins"

    General CommentGreat start to the album. I definitely think this is about the Confederacy and how people in the South are still trying to keep it alive. Things like "They say you're in the blood so you're runnin' through whatever is in your veins" is talking about how the Confederate pride is typically passed down from generation to generation. "We took the chains off but kept the rebels" seems to be talking about how America freed the slaves but kept the rebels/South. I don't feel like explaining the rest, but I think it's a great start lyrically.

    General Commentit's actually "I could be your fist 'cause..."
    and "show me open arms and cavalry in my way"
    and "raise it under gallows, 'cause if there's a price, they'll pay"

    that's what it says in the lyric zine.
