You watched the age collapse
Went wrong, went into reverse
You stitched and streamed your flags with tears

So proudly built the things
That you’ll soon grow to disown
Unhook these names from what you named
It’s nothing primary colours ever represent
But nationhood is never built on nuance

History’s an idea we’ve stapled to us
Just in case we find ourselves adrift
If it’s written down you’ll weave it through you
Children of a lie that can’t be disproved

This conversation is a dead loss
Your position is wrong
Your bankrupt gated community
The best lies come landlocked

Let’s trash the past apart
Don’t let the clock stop
Why kill the dream, it always felt so clean
Tick, tock, tick

But then it happened
Cold nation heart
You seemed so sincere
