about

This song concerns the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012.

lyrics

The government is gonna take me away
Since they passed the NDAA
I've been waiting for when my name is called
And they shove me between solid concrete walls

America is a battlefield and there's a war to win
Fear is pitting the government against it's citizens
Freedom is a dirty word and dissent is a sin
So do we wave our flag, or do we throw it in

You can say that everything's all right
You can sleep soundly through the night
You can close your eyes to the passing days
Maybe your children will wake from the haze (to see that)

America is a battlefield and there's a war to win
Fear is pitting the government against it's citizens
Freedom is a dirty word and dissent is a sin
So do we wave our flag, or do we throw it in
