Lyric discussion by maddsurgeon 

This is my Flag Day song. It always bothered me that people put so much store in something like a flag, which is only a symbol that means different things to different people. I thought the sentiment was quintessentially 80s until the recent spike in jingoism. And with the recent fad of anti-flag-burning ammendments, this song is once again on all my playlists. What's wrong with these people? A flag isn't freedom, it isn't equality, and it isn't justice. It's just a piece of cloth with some stars and stripes on it - a symbol that makes some people sentimental and makes others quake in fear. It all depends on where you stand. Want the world to believe we mean well? Put down your flags and start saying something sincere.
