Flag Burning

I'm gonna burn your flag from compassion not from hate

I'm gonna help you sever ties, to your master state

Symbols only signify the lowest of mistakes

Allegiance to a logo is the prerogative of fakes

I'm gonna smash the presses to set free a deeper truth

The printed word is a lie encased in leather tombs

The learned academics all fear they need a proof

But it's not the things you say, it's the things you try to do

I'm gonna sharpen axes and other blunted tools

I'm gonna prick the hearts of many a damn fool

Life is in creating a trouble for the few

Not in incubating the shit they offer you
