Why its the Flag while here, i believe
Not the people, because of all the thieves
Yes, their are those who have stolen away
The real people from our peaceful ways
Who decides? when serenity fails?
I once thought it was a military detail
But from what I see and what i have seen
i think its time for the insane to intervene
To Pot in a handbasket, that's the worlds way
But now that's its legal they have nothing to say
Bring on the crazies their voice is allowed
Listen for wisdom as their shouting out loud
Then watch who will listen or who stifles their voice
The insane know why we are given a choice
So the flag I shall trust long may she wave
And the land it protects may it always be safe!
