How much of the chorus has to stay the same to count? Does it count if the structure is the same, but most of the lines are modified?

Specifically, I'm wondering about Rise Against's "Hero of War". The normal chorus:

A hero of war
Yeah, that's what I'll be
And when I come home
They'll be damn proud of me
I'll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Cause it's a flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

But the final chorus changes it to:

A hero of war
Is that what they see?
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it's a flag that I love
It's the only flag I trust
