My country

por Fernando Lopes, 7 Abr 11



 Peter Garrett has said "It's not an anthem in favour of any country - it's more like a song about how the flag is often used to cover a multitude of sins and crimes - and how people hide behind the patriotism."

 Was it just a dream, were you so confused
Was it just a giant leap of logic
Was it the time of year, that makes a state of fear
Methods were the motives for the action

And did I hear you say
My country right or wrong

Did you save your face
Did you breach your faith
Women, there were children at the shelter
Now who can stop the hail
When human senses fail
There was never any warning, no escape

Did I hear you say
My country right or wrong
My country oh so strong
My country going wrong
My country right or wrong

I hear you say the truth must take a beating
The flag a camouflage for your deceiving
I know, yes I know
It's written on your soul
I know, we all make mistakes

This is not a case of blurred vision
It's a case of black holes, pocket holes, soul holes

And did I hear you say...

My country right or wrong
My country oh so strong
My country going wrong
My country right or wrong
