Watch The Flag Wave
Author: Mental


watch the flag wave
we think of the loved ones
and the lives they gave.
wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends
and fiancÚs too.
all came to tragic ends
but who never knew?
people searching for family
searching for some relief
the ones who tried to take our pride
tried to be the thief.
but we will stand tall
and don't let them take
to lose our freedom
would be our worst mistake.
