But we as a team
Have a phrase we say when
Negativity comes our way
Don't tread on this

from Deuce (Clint Dempsey) (Ft. Big Hawk & XO) – Don't Tread Lyrics on Rap Genius


A reference to the Gadsden flag (one of the first flags in the United States). The flag stands for personal freedom, and basic liberties. The motto is a message for anyone that tries to take our freedoms away.

Nike uses the image of a snake coiled around a soccer ball for an ongoing, patriotic “Don’t Tread On Me” campaign in support of the US men’s soccer team. The phrase has become a rallying cry for American soccer fans and the Gadsden flag can be seen at national team games.
