Album: Nothing Is SoundReleased: 2005
Despite the title, this song is not about politicians at all. The song is about heaven: "I pledge allegiance to a country without borders, without politicians." At various concerts, lead singer Jon Foreman
has stated that the song is not about politics or anti-anything. Rather, it is about "coming together and making a difference." However, the lyrics also tend to sympathize with politicians, leading to a contradictory message.
