lyrics

The True Red, White, and Blue

The Red is the blood of innocent people, slaughtered by our armies
The White symbolizes the purity, which this country isn't and will never be
The Blue is for justice, which many never got and most will never see
The Stripes for thirteen colonies, who'd be ashamed of what's become of this country

Chorus:
It's the true red, white, and blue
A symbol of our country and all it's been through
It's the true red, white, and blue
Centuries of corruption woven in will take centuries more to undo

The States of fifty in this country, who really aren't that free
The Stars for heaven, which like peace, will probably never reach
The Box represents how closed-minded society is in reality
The Bars of color, are like the bars of power which imprison you and me

Chorus:
It's the true red, white, and blue
A symbol of our country and all it's been through
It's the true red, white, and blue
Centuries of corruption woven in will take centuries more to undo

The Flag is not longer the symbol it was first created to be
The Flag is now a fashion in America's trendy society
The Flag is a grim reminder of our devastating history
The Flag represents a country still far from being the land of the free

Chorus:
It's the true red, white, and blue
A symbol of our country and all it's been through
It's the true red, white, and blue
Centuries of corruption woven in will take centuries more to undo
