Yep exactly - my intention is that the waving flag represents the "we" in the
lyrics ("Do just as we say") which in my mind is the state and the psychopaths
who control it (CFR, UN, military industrial complex, bankers, et cetera),
deceptively portraying itself as patriotism; and everything else represents the
resulting reality and experiences described by the soldier.
Thanks for the generous compliment!
