about

THE UNITED STATES FLAG CODE. Title 4, Chapter 1. § 8(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.

"There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people." Howard Zinn

And while the people for whom this song was written were not killed in the name of the country, per se, we've still got work to do, America.

lyrics

Standing on a distant shore,
thinking of my home
What did I go roaming for?
Just what have I done?
I miss America
She's in my heart
I miss America
She feels so far

Oh, but it's a tiny world
And I could catch a plane
Smile down at my favorite girl
And shout I'm back again
Did you miss me, America?
Like I missed you
Well, I'm back now, America
What you been up to?

Don't tell me it's that again
Looking back, I get sad again
Have we gone mad again?
We were not better then.
There's only us, there is not a them
There's only one way that we can win
God wants to bless this land
When she hates, she's forsaking him

My, it's weird to be here now and take a look around
Pure majesty from in the sky
There's work to do once you hit the ground
But in here, America,
For what it's worth
I miss you, America
Let me say that first
