lyrics

Today I woke up on the wrong side of the couch
Sweat marks staining both my underarms
With blood-shot, tear-struck eyes
I awoke from several night horrors
That terrorized my mind
Just to find my nightmares became real
It made me want to die

There stands a man on the top of what was earth
But what lies beneath his feet now are the flames of what he's burned
'Cause I'm sure there is no god
And I'm sure he has no soul
But if there was a god we'd all
Have a home in the underworld

This is not my country
Nor is it yours
We are aliens
We are vagabonds
We are burning your flag
We will not let you make us hate

It destroys everything that we have worked for
"My country tis of thee," well fuck it every word
Fuck the rock and rills, thy wooded hills
Fuck every mountainside
Fuck the anthem, I won't stand for it
And fuck the stars and stripes

But don't worry 'cause I know it'll be alright
Yeah aside from blacks, Latinos, punks and queers I think you might survive
They will kill you for the color of your skin or for your creed
They'll watch you die along the streets they walk for power, lust and greed
