Scar Spangled Banner Lyrics

1. Scar Spangled Banner (6:41)
Oh say you can you fucking see
The missiles fall like rain
Bloody mountains majesty
Dead bodies on the plain

By the bombing’s eerie light
See the crimson waves of red
What so proudly they all fell
The twilight of the dead

America -- the violent
The indifferent
God shit his grace on the
America -- the arrogant
The belligerent
Will live in infamy
We the people, for no people
Secure the blessings of tragedy
Do ordain we have established
The scar spangled banner

We pledge allegiance to no god
Only to the blood
Liberty is just a dream
When dying in the mud

This, the land of the deceived, home of the depraved
Bombs, they drop like falling leaves
And the deadly flag still waves

Repeat chorus

Red -- the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream
White -- the color of bleaching bone
Lovely and obscene
Blue -- the bruising color of flesh
Battered, ripped, and torn
And the colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn

What you see is what you get
You haven’t seen the bloody trail yet
I’m no patriot, just a hate-triot
Blood sport, my sure bet
See the flag, get a body bag
Salvation from a .44 mag.
Nothing left, no one saved
Cause our dog damn motherfucking bloody ass banner still waves
