This song is about the propaganda used by the US government to get kids to enlist and fight the war in Iraq. The song uses sarcastic lines such as "Fight for the wealth of a few." The last part of the song tells these kids to "see through the lies" and to realize this war is wrong and to stand up against it.
Anti-Flag follows in the footsteps of punk bands like Social Distortion and The Clash, speaking out against the government and the status quo. As their drummer Pat Thetic
told us, they see themselves as working against the trend of blind nationalism that was prevalent in the late '80s and again after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
