Nervous Triggers – My Flag Lyrics

[Chorus]
My flag! [Chorus]
My flag! My flag is a red rag
It used to be a white flag
Used to bandage the wounds
Of our fallen loved ones
My flag! My flag is a red rag
It used to be a white flag
It's a flag I hope that we can use
[Verse 3]
We see the face of oppression
In the green, green eyes
Of the girl at the refugee camp
But do we ever stop to wonder
What those green eyes see
When they're looking back
Are we really so blind
That all that we can see
Is a "Land of the Brave"
And a "Home of the Free"? My flag is a red rag
It used to be a white flag
It's a flag that I will salute
Ha! [Guitar Solo]
[Verse 4]
Two thousand, nine-hundred, seventy-seven
That can't be replaced by all the flags in heaven
One human life can't be replaced
By a million flags
Their blood is on the hands of a foreign power
Their blood is on the hands of our foreign policy
Their blood is soaked in the colors of my flag! [Verse 2]
So let's go and fight the oil war
And let's go and bury our dead
Let's bury them in shrouds
Of blue and white and red
Are you ready to bleed
For the colors that won't run? Of my flag
Of my flag
[Outro]
My flag is a red rag
My flag was a white flag
My flag is a red rag
My flag was a white flag
My flag, my flag, my flag
My flag, my flag
My flag is a red rag
My flag was a white flag
My flag is a red rag
My flag was a white flag
My flag, my flag, my flag
My flag, my flag
It's a flag I hope that we can use [Verse 1]
Heal the wounds of terror
With bandages of red, white, and blue
All we need is a dose of pride
To see our nation through
[Chorus]
My flag is a red rag
My flag is a red rag
My flag is a red rag
My flag is a red rag
Go! Are you ready to show the world
Imperialism can be fun? My flag is a red rag
It used to be a white flag
Used to bandage the wounds
Of our fallen loved ones
My flag!
