"A banner year 1864, don't 
want the red man anymore,
Can't have them taking 
up good land.  Give them a 
token flag, trade pipes and 
shake some hands Tell them 
the white stripes stand for peace"

"Say if they raise red white and blue,
Blue coats will never shoot at you,
But stripes will loose their sheen,
Black Kettle was their chief, he only wanted peace,
Under the flag...a massacre at Sand Creek"


"Wave your flag. Salivate.
Stirring feelings of pride and hate.
A peace of cloth can't hold your faith"

See the empty pole above his empty grave.

Blurry part of Oklahoma,
Where Custer shot and killed Black Kettle"

Stirring feelings of pride and hate.
A peace of cloth can't hold your faith"
