Snake Flag (demo)

by Peter Oren

/

about

I figured I'd release this demo because, though I wrote it last winter, it feels timely. To hold onto it until it's fully polished up seems unreasonable, so here you are--enjoy!

lyrics

Law of the land, I’ll never understand
None written by my hand--I don’t speak their language

Borne by war, never known peace before
Times when bloodied tides are justified when televised, but rarely reach our shores

There’s a snake flag flying under the stars and stripes
Up at the rich man’s mansion on the hill tonight

Still it’s the poor soul dying under the badged boot
Down at Fruitvale Station, the whole world to look

What’s wild is abandoned all for that profit advantage
It’s taken for granted, there’s always collateral damage

Law of the land, I’ll never understand
None written by my hand--I don’t speak their language
