They got my back in any altercation
That’s why I fight for them and never for the nation

from Talib Kweli – Letter From the Government Lyrics on Rap Genius


He’ll fight for his friends, but not for the nation.
His brothers got his back and support him, but his nation often disappoints him when he needs help the most.
