Raven,
what can we make of this war for our village
Raven,
explain all this plunder and pillage
It's all too painfully 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 war over here, death and gore over there.
We don't have another world to share or spare.
it's all too frightfully 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 patently 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 takin'.
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.
Because, 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.
