lyrics

First-strike attack / Patriotic impulse
Don't pretend to mourn the dead. I refuse to.
Against organized suicide the blind have signed for.
Die on the battleground: a republican duty.

Shooting aimless bullets.
Honor and tradition to save democracy. The metastasis that is this slavery
Proud to serve your homeland. Taste of blood in the sand.

Second strike - long and slow resonances of the nails on their deathbed.
Human tragedy - killing me softly - off with their head

Honor your dead - dishonor the living
[compatriots uphold the banner of decadent nations]

Arm their “third-world”, controlled by blood.
Brand new day – brand new enemy
Corrupt pieces of shit fueling the terror machine
Silence in the ranks empty boots beating the path.
This is a state of oppression

Commentary:

“Conceit, arrogance, and egotism are the essentials of patriotism. […] Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who have had the fortune of being born on some particular spot, consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose his superiority upon all the others.” Emma Goldman, Patriotism: a menace to liberty. (1911)
