'stars and stripes' 'Stars And Stripes' - Anti-Flag

Welcomin' with open arms and, with open hearts
In the end they found their arms in shackles and, their hearts torn out
This country named America is built on graves
Of the natives who lived here before, genocide took place
The word America means freedom as in, free to kill the free

Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
For me

It's the same today as then as, U.S. dollars are spent
To rid the native insurgence in Mexico, and any U.S. corporate interest
The third world is a modern day playground for multinational companies
And the tax dollars we're forced to pay, fund these heartless U.S. policies
Their explanation, national interest, national security

Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
They stand for greed, they stand for hate, but nothing I believe
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me

At little big horn national cemetery, there's a monument that reads,
To the soldiers killed in Montana while clearin' hostile indians away
And there's a flag there flyin' high, over the fallen killers' graves
When they call on me to die for them I'll say, not me

Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
They stand for greed, they stand for hate, but nothing I believe
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me

Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me
They stand for greed, they stand for hate, but nothing I believe
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me

Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, for me
They stand for greed, they stand for hate, but nothing I believe
Don't fly those stripes, those stars and stripes for me, me, me
