Rebels

Accidental racist? Man kiss my ass
The bell ain't ringing and you get no hall pass
Rex is gonna take you to class
Let's talk a little bit about the past
The rebel flag was a sign of treason
The reason you fly it doesn't matter
Let me shatter that thought process
Your nonsense notions, let me address

It wasn't about slavery?
Man you must be joking
That flag's not racist?
Man what are you smoking?
It's all about Southern pride?
Man you must be toking
Fighting for a noble cause?
You gotta be joking

You think you're a rebel
But you side with the devil
You brag about your flag
But you're hanging with the scum bags

You think you're a rebel
But you side with the devil
You brag about your flag
But you're hanging with the scum bags

States rights is just a code
Opening the door for Jim Crow
States rights to own slaves
To put millions in their graves
States rights to breed hate
To treat people like real estate
Your state has no right
In this fight might wasn't right

This didn't all happen in the past
Southern racism was built to last
Here today and here tomorrow
Trail of tears, trail of sorrow
You think it ended in 1865?
That it didn't happen while you were alive
Wrong again, you need to know
This shit is now, not a long time ago

You think you're a rebel
But you side with the devil
You brag about your flag
But you're hanging with the scum bags

You think you're a rebel
But you side with the devil
You brag about your flag
But you're hanging with the scum bags

Slavery ended but not so you'd notice
Bogus ferocious laws focused on the perpetuation
Of bondage and destitution, new institutions
Like peonage, sharecropping, the prison-lease system
Segregation, lynching, kept a race in their place
As defined by white men, it didn't end
Cycle of poverty, separate but equal
Slavery was part one, but there were many sequels

Your history is a history of hate
You can't reform your past, it's too late
Drop those old ideas and thoughts
Veneration of evil has got to stop
You lost, get over it
You were wrong and you know it
White power and white pride
Your cause has already died

You think you're a rebel
But you side with the devil
You brag about your flag
But you're hanging with the scum bags

You think you're a rebel
But you side with the devil
You brag about your flag
But you're hanging with the scum bags

Alexander Stephens was a traitor
Braxton Bragg was a traitor
Pierre Beauregard was a traitor
Nathan Bedford Forrest was a traitor
Stonewall Jackson was a traitor
Jefferson Davis was a traitor
Robert E. Lee was a traitor
All Confederates were traitors

The stars and bars were a sign of treason
The Blood Stained Banner was a sign of treason
The Bonnie Blue flag was a sign of treason
The Stainless Banner was a sign of treason

And they still are, they still are

Treason based on hate and subjugation of a race
Treason based on hate and subjugation of a race
Treason based on hate and subjugation of a race
Treason based on hate and subjugation of a race
