Billy Talent: Red Flag

Happy May Day!

Billy Talent – Red Flag (2006).  Director: Floria Sigismondi.

[Chorus:] Cast off the crutch that kills the pain
The red flag waving never meant the same
The kids of tomorrow don’t need today
When they live in the sins of yesterday

[Repeat chorus]

Well I’ve never seen us act like this
Our only hope is the minds of kids
And they’ll show us a thing or two

Our only weapons are the guns of youth
It’s only time before they tighten the noose
And then the hunt will be on for you

The red flag waving never meant the same, no
The red flag waving never meant the same

[Repeat chorus twice]

Like the smallest bee packs a sting
Like a pawn checkmates a king
We’ll attack at the crack of dawn

Build a ladder if there’s a wall
Don’t be afraid to slip and fall
Speak for yourself or they’ll speak for you

The red flag waving never meant the same, no!
The red flag waving never meant the same, no!

[Repeat chorus twice]

Like a fire
Don’t need water
Like a jury
Needs a liar
Like a riot
Don’t need order
Like a madman
Needs a martyr

We don’t need them
We don’t need them
We don’t need them
We don’t need them
We don’t need them
We don’t need them
We don’t need them
We don’t need them

[Repeat chorus]

Cast off the crutch that kills the pain
The red flag waving never meant the same
The kids of tomorrow don’t need today
When they live in the sins of yesterday (we don’t need them, we don’t need them)

Cast off the crutch that kills the pain (we don’t need them, we don’t need them)
The red flag waving never meant the same (we don’t need them, we don’t need them)
The kids of tomorrow don’t need today (we don’t need them, we don’t need them)
When they live in the sins of yesterday

We don’t need them!
