[Music & Lyrics (G. Holt)]



Oh say can you fucking see

The missiles fall like rain

Bloody mountains majesty


By the bombing's eerie light
Dead bodies on the plain

See the crimsons waves of red

What so proudly they all fell

The twilight of the dead



[Chorus:]

America - the violent

The indifferent


God shit is grace on me
America - the arrogant
The belligerent



Will live in infamy

We the people, for no people
Secure the blessings of tragedy
Do or dain we have enstablished



The scar spangled banner


[Solo - G. Holt]



We pledge allegiance to no god

Only to the blood
Liberty is just a dream


When dying in the mud

This, the land of the deceived, home of the depraved

Bombs, they drop like falling leaves

And the deadly flag still waves



[Repeat Chorus]




Red - the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream

White - the color of bleaching bone

Lovely and obscene
Blue - the bruising color of flesh


Battered, ripped and torn

The colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn


What you see is what you get
You haven't see the bloody trail yet


I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot



Blood sport, my sure bet

See the flag, get a body bag

Salvation form a .44 mag.

Nothing left, no one saved

Cause our goddamn motherfucking bloody ass


Banner still waves


[Solo R. Hunolt]

    You must not be familiar with Exodus music. The song rings true of what our flag has come to represent to the rest of the world. It has nothing to do with obamacare, but the war mongers our government has become. Putting our soldiers lives on the line for what, senseless politics. When cowards like Obama have never held a gun, much less had another man in his sights.

    This guy doesnt like missles. He would rather prefer that only other countries had the boom booms. I think this song is arrogant and belligerent. The author is clearly upset that his Obamacare isnt working out too good. Maybe if he chilled out for a few and had a V8 things would be better.
