Explosions burst across the placid sky
to symbolize aggressive victory
when people driven far from burning homes
burn homes of people in new lands we claim.
We raise our flag of war that drips their blood
and celebrate our hard-won liberty
then feast and sing to praise our noble right
to live free on this sacred land we stole.
We aim our guns to shoot their stubborn hearts
when they refuse to love our deity
who teaches noble sacrifice and love
then dare rebel against our generous rule.
When fireworks sparkle in our star-lit sky
we gather on the fourth day of July
to celebrate our fight with tyranny
and force on all our hard-won liberty.
