    General CommentAn anti american arrogance and opressive,racism nation song
    13 red and white stripes flying (the so-beloved flag)
    White for skin and red for dying (white supremacy, deliberate racism, opressive violence...etc)
    Why can we walk through the people and not feel like the ones who cares to change that!
    Fuck the flag, let that motherfucker burn in fire! Is that a crime? Fuck the borders,the exacerbated nationalism!
    We dont live our lives just by simbolism, that separete,we need some unity!

    My InterpretationI've known this song for a while now but I just heard Fire Water Burn by Bloodhound Gang today and I googled the "we don't need no water let the motherfucker burn" line because I figured there was something behind it if it was in two different songs. Anyway I found this forum where people were discussing it and the discussion really shed some light on the meaning.
