lyrics

Patriot shed your loyalties
For given so freely then only concede
Your need for illusory map lines of privilege
Slave to the drug of nationalism

Rescind, oh citizen, abolish your creed
And march by my side, a person untied

Blacken your flag for all humankind
Dismantle state power which once left behind
Would give voice to countless bound and gagged
Restoring sight to those blinded by flags

Rescind, oh patriot, retract your oaths
And wash yourself of your dangerous false pride
Rescind, oh citizen, abolish your creed
And march by my side, a person untied

Cast down your shackles, restraints of the state
Which bind your pride to fear and hate
Those forked-tongued deceivers, our venal leaders
Pulpit and podium pushing national pride

But why?
Tell me why

Why when our efforts are better directed
In social cooperatives and tested mutualism
Campaigns of kindness and fairness for all
Embracing our neighbours not making them crawl

Heed the call
Free us all

Grace the roster of the dead
Who would rather fall then be led
A slave to principles not men
No longer patriot or citizen
And when the flag is bled
Of colours shapes and meaning then
We will all start again
But this time without fear of reign
