lyrics

It's no disrespect
It's a simple disconnect
It's devotion masquerading
For idolatry
Sanctifying pastimes
Spangled Xs
Thin blue lines
They're deified to obfuscate
Our ugly history
This hand won't be forced over my heart
These lips won't be coerced to take part
In glorifying fabric
To recite or sing in chorus
This hand will not be forced
It's no disrespect
It's denial of perfection
Etched into us from our youth
And made to make us yield
While the silent, deadly mighty wait
Using anthems as their bait
To sedate is further
Someday everyone will kneel
This hand won't be forced over my chest
At my side it's clenched tightly
In protest
Archaic is the mandate and explicit, my retort
This hand will not be forced
Behold our new religion
The worshipping of linen
Adoration of a rag
How would the Maker feel?
I'd wager if he's real
That he probably hates flags
This hand won't be forced over my heart
These lips won't be coerced to take part
Archaic is the mandate and explicit, my retort
This hand will not be forced
