Flags 04:37
He turned a blind eye With convictions that he swore Claimed there was a new age Time to declare a war The signal in the crowd Commands their attentions He's got all the answers And flawed intentions So when it all comes down Whose banner do you march under? When it all comes down Whose flag do you fly? When it all comes down What kind of people will you fight for? When it all comes down Who will stand by your side? Absolved himself of blame Integrity’s for the weak Blind them with the message And the power that he seeks Turn up all the noise Til they only hear his voice His twisted fantasy Your newfound destiny Keep the blinders on Leave all the curtains drawn You’re shielded from the fear Of the conscience in your ear You’ve fallen in so deep Can’t summon you from sleep Delusion is your master Happily ever after

about

All proceeds from this single to benefit the National Network of Abortion Funds, abortionfunds.org

We started writing this song during the dark period of 2021. The pandemic was still in full swing, populist autocrats were running a lot more than they should be running, there had just been an attempted coup, and everything looked pretty bleak.

When the first demo went out to the band, the suggested lyrics Jill sent back had the note attached that read "this might be angrier than you were intending. But I can't seem to avoid it these days."

But as we continued to slowly churn on the new album, things were changing; vaccines were being distributed and maybe there was some light at the end of the tunnel.

We wondered if a political song about terrible men abusing power and abusing people would continue to be as relevant as it had been a year ago.

Fast forward to June 2022, and it still is.

We're still angry. And you should be too.
