Beautiful Enemy

I saw your flag,
Another star another stripe,
What's your new bag?
Something real or just some hype?
Tell me what have you sown,
Have you prospered and grown,
Why shouldn't you have your moments of genius?
Just because our alliance broke with no civil words between us?
Oh my beautiful enemy, beautiful,
I send my scorn and ridicule,
You're not innocent,
No, not innocent,
No one's innocent.

My nation's grand,
Your name's not on any signs.
It's so well-planned.
And well groomed and yet sometimes,
The past tornadoes through.
People talk about you.
Can't they see that your rein is steely and torturous?
I start thinking that I am sinking inside a hollow fortress.
Oh my enemy, beautiful enemy,
My stride is slowed by memory,
But not innocence, no not innocent,
No one's innocent.

In my furies I've dreamed that juries denounce you.
There I stand with the upper hand
but in order to trounce you
I just keep getting above myself
I just keep getting above myself,
And so I'm worried, but as I've stated,
Things can be complicated,
But you're my enemy,
You're my enemy,
You're my enemy.

The future's bright.
There are new things we will love,
It feels so right.
Let's not make up or rise above.
Yes we are more corrupted,
But happy and productive,
We'll both live in our worlds of civilized people.
Though I've heard that my brand new church
has a slightly higher steeple.

Oh my enemy, beautiful enemy,
Hail to your vast hegemony,
You're not innocent, I'm not innocent,
No one's innocent.
