Raven,
what can we make of this
war for our village

Raven,
explain all this
plunder and pillage

It's all too patently clear
Since Raven's been wavin'
war flags around here
So Raven stop wavin'
war flags around here

Raven
You want to blast us
into outer space.
First, let's feed house and clothe
the whole human race.
'cause there's gore over here,
death and more over there.
We do not have another
world to share or spare.
it's all too painfully clear.
Since, Raven's been wavin'
war flags around here.
So Raven stop wavin'
war flags around here.

Raven
Don't go engravin
dull colors of your framin'
of our red, our white over blue.
It shames us to see
the dirty tricks that you do.
It is all too famously clear.
Since, Raven's been wavin'
war flags around here
So, Raven stop wavin'
war flags around here

Raven
Who are you savin'
off points you've been shavin'.
The lives you are stakin'
The ground you have shaken.
No haven is safe
from blind hatred we fear
Since Raven's been wavin'
war flags around here
So, Raven stop wavin'
 war flags around here.

Cuz, it blows 
as blood flows
from our heads to our toes
Heaven knows
we're shedding
much more
than a tear

since Raven's been wavin;
war flags around here.
So, Raven stop wavin'
bloody war flags
around here.
