lyrics

I pledge allegiance to the waves in your hair
though I'm not convinced to salute the flag

I pledge allegiance to the ring on your hand
and the rockets burning within my mind

and in DC, as they pass down their choice
to send young blood burning from the bay

I pledge allegiance to the light that you cast
as a civil twilight engulfs our land

I pledge allegiance to the sound of your feet
on the way to work in the early morn

I pledge allegiance to the stars in your eyes
though I'm not convinced to salute the stripes

and yes I guess why execs at their desks
never air an arab on CNN

I pledge allegiance to the sound of your name
and all I ask is that you take mine
