When I see the sores of war flying high up in the sky
on the license plate of your car and tattooed on your thigh
I wonder, yeah, I sometimes wonder why
When I see that Stainless Banner nailed so neatly to your wall
I try to feel no anger but it's hard to feel so small
And I say to myself: "What's wrong with us all?"
When I see a rebel flag painted proudly on your face
I wish we all had a tail to wag maybe then we'd be one race
And I pray, sometimes, for that old Amazing Grace
Some say it's a sign of Southern Pride a symbol of our history
well, maybe so, if you were on that side fighting for that mystery
Some say it's a flag of bravery but that's not what it's about
there was a thing called slavery and that thing was thrown out
Now it's time to do the same with the flag you love so dearly
You probably don't know my name so I'll just sign this song
