lyrics

The time has come for real life
To kick you in the teeth
With the fury of a million bombs
On gridlock underneath
The words that warn are left to chance
Drifting in the breeze
With a mess of dinosaur bones
From faceless factories

Your flag won’t save you anymore
Keep the ocean from rising up and
Washing away the shore
Keep the sun from bearing down upon
The heads of the idle poor
Your flag won’t save you anymore
Your flag won’t save you anymore

The time has come for a wake up call
But you’re addicted to the dream
Of convenience - right and wrong
And a full blown enemy
Down on four and dead to rights
No hero in the wings
No electric starring role
In the modern sport of kings

Your flag won’t save you anymore
Keep the baying mob from rioting
On the winding road to war
Keep the blood from raining down upon
The heads of the riled poor
Your flag won’t save you anymore
Your flag won’t save you anymore

The time has gone to make it right
The fallout and the tears
There’s a reckoning coming on
With blood stained souvenirs

Your flag won’t save you anymore
Keep the plutocrats from lining up
To harvest away the core
Of a world hell bent on going out
With a whimper - not a roar
Your flag won’t save you anymore
Your flag won’t save you anymore
