" 'Song For a Nation'has been described as the disgruntled boyscout song. Written from the perspective of growing up in America in the time of Vietnam and beyond. Rocks hard with Laura Dyken on lead guitar."
Well they taught me
To pledge allegiance
To be thoughtful, courteous, and kind
and they taught me
history
and they taught me
to hold my head with pride
they didn't tell me of broken treaties
or the longest march
lies and genocide
growing up I remember how they murdered the Kennedy's
I saw Vietnam and Watergate on the TV
I saw presidents try to run and hide
I saw anger and shame
I saw lies and genocide
Mr. Big talking patriot says
Don't burn that flag
Because it means so much to us
Mr. Big shot patriot
Says don't burn that flag
Because it means so much to us
Red for the oceans of innocent blood they shed
White for the heroin and cocaine they brought to our city streets
And blue, very deep blue, for the bitterness and bottomless sorrow and anger
they left in our name
All the good men who fought and died for this land
Because it means so much to us
All the shining youth in their prime who died for this land
Because it means so much to us
Red for the oceans of innocent blood they shed
White for the heroin and cocaine they brought to our city streets
And blue, very deep blue, for the bitterness and bottomless sorrow and anger
they left in our name.
