Oh oh, brother - man where are you
I am bucklin' from the load
I haven't lost my eye for color
But my heart can't see the road
Oh oh, sister - come and catch me
'cause my legs their prime has past
I am breakin' - from the sorrow
And my - faith is fadin' fast
Mother, father help me
I'm your flesh and blood and bone
Don't ya hear me, can't ya see me
Am I doomed to live alone
Without warmth or love or honor
like a dog out on the street
Am I trash cause I can't manage
Must I grovel at your feet?
I'm the boy who fought your battles
And I'm the man who won your wars
Is it over, have you used me
I'm no value anymore?
I'm your mothers, wives and daughters
I'm your fathers, husbands, sons...
I'm the life's blood of this country
I'm the hopeful precious ones
Am I nothin', am I no one
once a fabric - now a rag
We treat people like they're nothin'
We're not fit to fly
fit to fly
no,no,no - no,no,no
We're not fit to fly - fit to fly a flag (no,no,no)
Join the army
See the world
The marine corps
Join the navy
We're not fit to fly - fit to fly the flag
