Crossed Flags

“Crossed Flags”

 

Rally the boys and send them off to war

Justify us all and claim it’s for the people

While cannons are fired from the steeple

 

Give us a speech, paint the extremists absurd

As you confuse yourself in the written word

And shred the ones who know

 

 

We’ll dig the graves to bury the souls

On the whitest of stones write Jesus saves

And hope they’re remembered

 

Gather at the church and we’ll sing it

Bells struck to drown the words the wise men said

Ignorance put flowers on your dead

 

 

Misinterpretations and fancy writing

While nations are fighting

Tolerance has become a fable

And no round table for knights to gather

The choir girlsand boys are singing

It must be trueso hats off and join in

We’ll leavebetter women and men

Or would you rather

 

 

They all believe in that which makes it true

Commandments in black transcribed red white and blue

But did you know the founders?

 

What they don’t understand preservesthe tradition

We’ll pay for the elite, servants of greed, they’ll neversee

And it was all just meant for youand me

 

 

What’s been established is for the good of all

Takes care of the lies they invented to keep us down

Poisoned olive branches we’ll keep the peace

 

People make a society but what’ social is an atrocity

And they sit and point fingers to alienate ferocity

Not realizing what’s been done
