Shadow of Our Flag





















I remember seeing faces
of heros of the past.
As they fought and died
and raised our flag high upon its mast.

We used to stand reverently
with our hands upon our heart.
And proudly pledge allegiance
to a nation taking part.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

--

As freedoms beacon 
to the world we stood.
Stalwart, firm and united
a champion of good.

The greatest of nations
reaching for stars.
Seeding all other nation
with the dreams that were ours.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

--

Lost to the past
American dreams.
Dimmer each day
are those glorious beams.

Eclipsed by the shadow
cast by our past.
We are living today
in the time that is last.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

--

Still some men dream of freedom
and stand upon the wall.
Bearing arms against troubles
singing of Montazuma's halls.

Liberty doesn't fade away,
going quietly in the night.
Its a thirst that can't be quenched
or lost without a fight.

--

Stark against the pavement
I see the banner wave.
The shadow of our flag
of a home that once was brave.

I stand in that shadow.


Will you stand with me?
