"Flag" as written by and Joseph Lee Henry....
Take that noise out in the street
This rubble out from under my feet
No rest for the weary in here
And make a fuss, you're a volunteer

These days they lord above me
Growing mean as they grow shorter
Like a flag on a closing border now
Closing right behind you

In a crowd come off the hill
Full of bloodlust and goodwill
We carried our pride above our heads
Like a flag we could cheer to wake the dead

And when we could go no further
And were drowning on a desert, we
Raised our flag to follow the breath of God
But it was blowin' every which way

I loved you long before I knew
Love is something one decides to do
My vanity and fear conspired belief
That love's just a mirror for a thief

So when you held me tight against you
And I mistook your heart for thunder
And like a flag hid behind and under you
Well who could blame me

When you held me tight against you
And I mistook your heart for thunder
Like a flag I hid behind it
Like a flag I'm hiding under you

Now I hang my clothes out to dry
Like waves of surrender they fly
The whore of this world looks old and played
Still she peeks from the alley like a waiting bride's maid

Laugh or bleed as you need to
Who of us doesn't know already
Every flag flies like confetti now
