In this country, you scorn me,
For not being a patriot.
But the way you describe patriotism,
Makes it sound like being an idiot.
"Close your ears to the government,
Believe everything they say."
The words coming out of your mouth
Fill me with dismay.
If closing my ears to the truth
Is what is required of me,
Then what is the point,
In living in the land of the free?
If what you say is true,
Then a patriot I cannot be.
Because not hearing the truth is lying,
And lying is not me.
