Wave a flag, wear a cross, hold a gun

(Not in my name, not in my name)

Plant the seed in another young son

(Not in my name, not in my name)

 

Fan the flames, stoke the fires of fear

(Not in my name, not in my name)

Tell ‘em they don’t deserve to be here

(Not in my name, not in my name)

 

Not in my name: just a hollow lie

Not in my name: just a covered eye

More of the same. Who else has to die?

No one to blame but a mirror

 

Tell a child he’s headed to Hell

(Not in my name, not in my name)

Tell his mother she’s guilty as well

(Not in my name, not in my name)

 

Close your doors to the people in need

(Not in my name, not in my name)

Build an altar to power and greed

(Not in my name, not in my name)

 

Not in my name: just a hollow lie

Not in my name: just a covered eye

More of the same. Who else has to die?

No one to blame but a mirror

 

Oh my father, oh my mother

When did we forget each other?

Oh my sister, oh my brother

Is it too late to make amends?
