Why should I love a country that has never accepted me?
I’ll never wave your goddamn flag and pretend that I am free.
I spit on your celebrations and I will never play your games.
Don’t think I’ll kiss your ass while my people are in chains.
You hypocrites make me sick with your pretensions and your lies.
Then you drape yourselves in sheets and have the nerve to moralize.
You celebrate your freedom while destroying the homes of others.
Independence is only for you as the rest of the world discovers.
Your bombs that burst in air are now destroying all mankind.
As the empire marches on, the world gets redefined.
What bravery you display by the dropping of your drones.
And you littered foreign lands with innocent peoples bones.
Celebrate the fourth and forget the shit you’ve done.
When your bombs are busy bursting, we know you’re having fun.
