lyrics

My plans for the 4th are nothing.
How is it supposed to mean something
When people in the Land of the Free
Cannot drink their own goddamned water?
My plans for the 4th could be marching
Through the streets and screaming
'Til my voice is gone and my feet are bleeding,
Dreaming, dreaming, that everything we need

Is anywhere near our reach
Oh, how I want to believe,
I really want to believe,

But my plans for the 4th are nothing.
Is anything I can do really worth something?
I'm stricken numb by the horrors
Of the Home of the Brave
And I feel like a fucking coward,
Fading through every miserable hour,
Waiting on baited breath for a war
And singing songs

As if songs really have any power
Oh, how I want to believe,
I really want to believe,

But my plans for the 4th are nothing,
Every firework, every flag pin means nothing.
This is nothing more to me
Than the most depressing joke of the year.
My only plan for the 4th is work,
I'll stand listlessly behind a cash register
And try to ignore anyone who wishes me

Any sort of Happy Holiday
And let all the sorrow and rage
Sink right to the soles of my feet
And let it settle all the way.
