"American Spring" (2015)




Fabled World lyrics - Anti-Flag

We live in a fabled world,
of dreaming boys and wide-eyed girls;
Where precious few get a fair start,
these times can break you,
these times can leave you,
torn apart.

The story starts with genocide,
slavery, those terrorized;
Families, cultures torn apart,
this ugly truth only the start.

And it's a white washed pact,
the founding act,
revolution or contract?
To subjugate, to torture, to abuse,
for the few.

We live in a fabled world,
of terror, day and night,
all hidden in plain sight;
We live in a fabled world,
where the poor and the weak,
are pawns for profit's sake.

Lock up mass incarcerate,
the new Jim Crow, the new slave trade;
If Doctor King were here today,
he'd fight for much more than a dream.

And you should go sign up,
join the fight,
the rich sleep while you kill tonight;
Love thy enemy as thyself,
as you carpet bomb him to hell.

We live in a fabled world,
of terror, day and night,
all hidden in plain sight;
We live in a fabled world,
where the poor and the weak,
are pawns for profit's sake.

We live in a fabled world,
a corprocratic killing field;
Where fascist profits are a lock,
these times can break you,
these times can leave you,
torn apart.

We live in a fabled world,
of terror, day and night,
all hidden in plain sight;
We live in a fabled world,
where the poor and the weak,
are pawns for profit's sake.

We live in a fabled world
We live in a fabled world,
These times can break you,
these times can leave you,
torn apart.

The Great Divide lyrics - Anti-Flag

It's a breakdown, of the greatest divide
Never had a chance you were dead when you arrived
Class war to the 'nth degree
And they're coming for us and everyone that we trust
It's a breakdown, of rationality
Re-enforcement of false beliefs
Class war to the 'nth degree
And they're coming for us and everyone that we trust

While white collar crime runs out of control
Across the great divide lays the wretched poor
A rotting melting pot of haves and of have nots
So fix your bayonets, 'cause we're at war

It's a breakdown, or morality
A poor man's prison is a rich man's greed
Class war to the 'nth degree
In God we trust, they're coming for us
It's a breakdown, of your godly verse
The meek shall inherit the least of the earth
Class war to the 'nth degree
In God we trust, they're coming for us

While white collar crime runs out of control
Across the great divide lays the wretched poor
A rotting melting pot of haves and of have nots
So fix your bayonets...
Be strong, be brave, we're crossing the great divide
Be brave, we're crossing the divide

Brandenburg Gate lyrics - Anti-flag

I lost my baby to a foreign war
She was cut down in the gunfire of the western world

She was livin' in sin, I was livin' in a lie
She was caught up in the glimmer of a rich mans eye
I couldn't see her from the other side
They said son "there is no glory in your pride."

I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait
I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait, I'll wait

Well, I lost my baby to a foreign war
She was cut down in the gunfire of the western world

She was searching for salvation in the things you buy
I was finding all the reason to give up on life
If you love something and give it away
It can't come back unless you're free.

I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait
I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait,
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait.

Somewhere in the in between
Where the east and the west meet
In the 30 year war where I came clean
That's where you will find me.

So I'll wait, I'll wait.

I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait
I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait,
(So I'll wait)
I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait
(So I'll wait)
I will wait at the Brandenburg Gate
At the Brandenburg Gate I'll wait,
So I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait.

I lost my baby to a foreign war.

Sky Is Falling lyrics - Anti-Flag

I see my future straight in front of me
A super structure blown to smithereens
It's getting hard to hold to hope these days
I know it's much too late
Blasted lives lay in the debris
Blasted hearts where there once were dreams
Right now it's dark
And this is just the start

I know it's much too late
I know it's much too late
I know it's much too late
In the blink of an eye…
The sky is falling down

Falling down on me
Searching for a way out
But there's no escape
There is no past or future
I fell like I'm gonna drown
When the sky falls down
When the sky falls down
Sky falls down

In disbelief wearin' a lost blank stare
There's no help coming because no one cares
The world just sit by, waiting for us to die…
I know it's much too late
Counter Insurgent or insurgency
Religious, ethnic or sectarian seeds
Manipulation, born out of total greed

The sky is falling down
Falling down on me
Searching for a way out
But there's no scape
There is no past or future
I feel like I'm gonna drown
When the sky falls down

The sky is falling down
Falling down on me
Searching for a way out
But there's no scape
There is no past or future
I feel like I'm gonna drown
When the sky falls down
When the sky falls down
Sky falls down

(Skies fall, skies fall, skies fall, skies...)
I know it's much too late (Skies fall, skies fall, skies fall)
All gone in the blink of an eye (In the blink of an eye)
I know it's much too late (Skies fall, skies fall, skies fall)

I know it's much too late
In the blink of an eye
The sky is falling down
Falling down on me
Searching for a way out
But there's no escape
There's no past or future
I feel like I'm gonna drown
When the sky falls down
When the sky falls down

The sky is falling down
Falling down on me
Searching for a way out
But there's no escape
There's no past or future
I feel like I'm gonna drown
When the sky falls down
When the sky falls down
Sky falls down

Walk Away lyrics - Anti-flag

Walk away is what you always do
Be the same, as you want to do
There must be more to life than this

I don't ever know where I can find
An answer that is [?]
I know that we're okay
I know we're not afraid
Asleep we forge our own chains

Walk away, walk away is what you always do
Be the same, be the same as you want to do
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this

I came along at the wrong time
Watched colors turn all my insides
The criminal we receive
The criminal we conceive

Walk away, walk away is what you always do
Be the same, be the same as you want to do
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this

Sitting around and waiting for it all to end
Sitting around and waiting for it all to end
Sitting around and waiting for it

I know I can't be saved
I know I can't be saved
I know I can't be saved
I know I can't be saved

The certainty of our lifetimes
When we no longer dream, we die

Walk away, walk away is what you always do
Be the same, be the same as you want to do
There must be more to life than this
There must be more to life than this

Sitting around and waiting for it all to end
Sitting around and waiting for it all to end
Sitting around and waiting for it

Song For Your Enemy lyrics - anti-flag

Cover up so no one sees too much
Separate the justice from the judged

Turn it on and turn it up
So I can't hear a goddamn thing
Turn it on and turn it up
So no one feels a goddamn thing

Stealing today
Buried the shame
We can only be untamed

This is the song for your enemy
This is the song for living recklessly

Cut away so no one cares too much
Separate the salesman from our crutch

Turn it on and turn it up
So I can't hear a goddamn thing
Turn it on and turn it up
So no one feels a goddamn thing

Stealing today
Buried the shame
We can only be untamed

This is the song for your enemy
This is the song for living recklessly

This is the song for your dignity
This is the song for living endlessly

I don't ever wanna fell this way again
I don't ever want this feeling to ever end

This is the song for who you want to be
This is the song for your enemy

Set Yourself On Fire lyrics - Anti Flag

Trying to understand what's with you
And all your friends and friend's friends are trying too
It's hard to find the words I really wanna say
But there's no point in waiting for another day

Crashing at the beach till season's end
Our unknown future was just waiting straight ahead
Yeah on the verge of something we'll never forget
In this the summer of our utter discontent

All caught up in the things that you want to do
You're all caught up in the things that are only... YOU!!!

You're gonna set yourself on fire
I see you set yourself on fire
Now you're burnin' down, burnin' down

Those days reckless, earnest, angry and naive
So much has changed but so much stays the same
Yeah self destruction is still flowin' in my veins
Could rise to greatness or could all go down in flames

All caught up in the things that you wanna do
In the things that are only... YOU!!!
They're only you!!! Yeah!!!

You're gonna set yourself on fire
I see you set yourself on fire
Now you're burnin' down, burning down

What are we, what are we gonna to do now
What are we, what are we gonna to do
What are we, what are we gonna to do now
What are we, what are we gonna to do now
What are we, what are we gonna to do
What are we, what are we gonna to do now

You're gonna set yourself on fire
I see you set yourself on fire
Now you're burnin' down, burnin' down

You gonna burn, you gonna burn
Gonna burn, gonna burn

All Of The Poison, All Of The Pain lyrics - Anti-Flag

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From masses we shadows, from masses we can't escape

The world is never quiet
Even silence makes a sound
A pin-prick, a blank strike
What was proud is still as proud
Watch it unfold on LCD screen sets,
so we really, never, ever have to deal with it

Each pixel is a story of what there was before
Each cathode ray disguises just what we're looking for

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From masses we shadow, from masses we can't escape

From the great north to a working man's hand
There's a story in the desert
Below the cobblestones the sand
Our indulgence is just one step away
Lust has no end when there's no end and no one awake to say

Are we afraid of you?
Are we the same as you?

Each pixel is a story of what there was before
Each wire tapped for water, to homogenize the poor
Each commercial will remind us that things couldn't get much worse

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From masses we shadow, from masses we can't escape

Are we afraid of you?
Are we the same as you?

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From masses we shadows, from masses we can't escape

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From masses we shadows, from masses we can't escape

Away, away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From masses we shadows, from masses we can't escape

Break Something lyrics - Anti-Flag

Just trying to cope, the pushing and the pull
Anxiety that won't let go
This never ending race, no exit to escape
Takes everything from you

"The Great Recession", a great depression
A boom and bust - a Goldman Sachs play date
Supply and demand, they'll work you to death
Leave you broken, tell you, "Have a nice day"

I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break break something
Break break something, break something today

The Chicago School, neoliberal rule
Will work you till you crash
S.R.I. nation, the corporation
This ain't a model that is built to last

I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break break something
Break break something, break something today

I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break break something
Break break something, break something today

You want the suit at the top
To tell you what your life should cost?
I guarantee, it's a speck of what it's worth to you

You want the suit at the top
To tell you what your life should cost?
I guarantee, it's a speck of what it's worth to you

I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break break something
Break break something, break something today

I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break something today
I'm gonna break, gonna break break something
Break break something, break something today

Without End lyrics - Anti-Flag

Without end, I can see
Everything in front of me
Without end, I can be
As free as I want to be

It's the same game we all play
It's a game that we can't change
And there's nothing you can say to shake
the sands of our own fate

I gave away
All the things I'm supposed to save
I gave away
So I can be free
Of all that defines me

Without end, our crime would be
Living like it used to be
Without end, you stole from me
My home, my heart, my family

It's the same game we all play
It's a game that we can't change
And there's nothing you can say to shake
the sands of our own fate

I gave away
All the things I'm supposed to save
I gave away
So I can be free
Of all that defines me

Without end, we rise
Without end, we rise
Without end, we rise
Without end, we...

It's the same game we all play
It's a game that we can't change
And there's nothing you can say to shake
the sands of our own fate

I gave away all the things I'm supposed to save
I gave away

I gave away all the things I'm supposed to save
I gave away
So I can be free
Of all that defines me
So we can be free
So we can break free

Believer lyrics - Anti-Flag

It's so hard no to feel afraid
I want so bad not to think of myself or the things I'd change
I'm not my father or my ex lover
But I am my mother's son

I give up, I give in
I just want this to end
I wish I was anywhere but here
Don't give up, don't give in
There's no peace in the end
The war worth waging is right here

There's a debt to pay
There's a war torn land
There is rural waste and a slavery flag
A warrior wedding, a victory parade
A folded flag, a death benefit betrayed
There's no survival in a living wage of hazard pay

I give up, I give in
I just want this to end
I wish I was anywhere but here
Don't give up, don't give in
There's no peace in the end
The war worth waging is right here

On the streets tonight there's gonna be uprising
Born of the calm, born of the thriving
On the streets tonight there's gonna be uprising
Born of the calm, born of the thriving

I give up, I give in
I just want this to end
I wish I was anywhere but here
Don't give up, don't give in
There's no peace in the end
The war worth waging is right here
The war worth waging is right here

Just this. Justice.
Just this. Justice.
Just this. Justice.
Just this. Justice.

To Hell With Boredom lyrics - Anti-Flag

Drive the cop out of your head
No one cares until you're dead
The old world is behind you comrade
No one cares until you're dead
Happiness is haning your landlord
No one cares until you're dead

Freedom is the crime that contains all crime
Liberty is living without dead time

Whoa oh
To hell with boredom
Whoa oh
To hell with spectacle

With boundary
With ennui
With monotony
To hell with apathy
Whoa oh

Drive the cop out of your head
No one cares until you're dead
The old world is behind you comrade

Low Expectations lyrics - Anti-Flag

Burn it down once burn it down again
Are you my enemy or my friend?
So sick of all the bullshit and the posers who have got something to prove
These days I'll leave those thoughts to the likes of someone new

Living a life of low expectations
Living a life of no salvation
Living a life of low expectations
Living a lie

This place, it sucks, and I don't give a fuck
Empty laughs and hollow eyes

Trading bullshit half truth lies
You're sadistic and arrogant and deceptively eloquent, that's you
I roll my eyes, checkout out.
I'm done. I'm through.

Living a life of low expectations
Living a life of no salvation
Living a life of low expectations
Living a lie

I know that this is going no where
It's hard, it's hard for me to fucking care - I don't
Con artists leading fools
Sheep sleeping with the wolves
I gladly leave that all to you

Living a life of low expectations
Living a life of no salvation
Living a life of low expectations
Living a lie

Living a life of low expectations
Living a life of no salvation
Living a life of no salvation

The Debate Is Over (If You Want It) lyrics - Anti-Flag

For the first time in my life I'm truly free
To see the clear cut forest for the poisoned sea
To see the waters occupy the shores of Jersey

And I feel alive

For the first time in my life I'm truly free
To watch the waters persecute in New Orleans

87 days of disregard on a livestream
Fukashima radiate into the deep sea

Don't let 'em tell you this is on your back
The point of contention is how they act
Where you draw the line will set you free

The debate is

For the last time in our lives we'll get to see
Sunsets reflect and shine off of Greenland sheet
There's too much to gain letting things "be as they be"
As the same who sell disease they also sell "green"

So just change the light you buy
Or just change the car you drive
But don't change the make up of their economy

Don't let 'em tell you this is on your back
The point of contention is how they act
Where you draw the line will set you free

Don't let 'em tell you this is on your back
The point of contention is how they act
Where you draw the line will set you free

The debate is...

The debate is over.
