Anti-flag – Gifts From America: With Love, The U.S.A. lyrics

The world keeps turning and I keep fighting
'cause what else are you to do?
When there's a fascist telling you,
"It's time you were put in your place!"
As he salutes the Stars and Stripes
By raising fists and starting fights,
Like an aberration from Hitler's Nazi Riech

Not proud - Of my skin
Not proud - Of where I live
I'm fucking proud of who I am!

National pride inside you
Building you up, or limiting you?

Everyone keeps asking,
"Why's he so pissed and so angry?"
When there's killing in this world,
Of men and womyn, boys and girls
For the sake of a dividend gain
These actions proclaimed in our name,
Turn Stars and Stripes to shades of shame
"Gifts from America: With Love, The U.S.A"

Not proud - Of my skin
Not proud - Of where I live
I'm fucking proud of who I am... I am human!

National pride inside you
Building you up, or limiting you?
Fighting for what on the battlefield?
Humanity? Corporate control and greed?

This country's flag flies as a corporate symbol
This country's flag strikes hearts with fear-Cold fear!
This country's flag represents oil interests
The president wages an endless war so he can,
Justify stealing fucking billions
Steal the public's rights through the use of fear, use of fear...
That is a system I can not endorse

National pride inside you
Building you up, or limiting you?
Fighting for what on the battlefield?
Humanity? Corporate control and greed?
Look for the truth you'll see...
Madison and jefferson
Are turning in their graves!
