Sage Francis - Sage Francis - Make Shift Patroit lyrics

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop Is Out Of Stock
Hang Myself...Half Mast

Makeshift Patriot
The
Flag Shop is Out of Stock
I hang myself...via live telecast

Coming live from my own funeral...the
beautiful weather offered a nice shine
Which is suitable for a full view of a forever altered
skyline
It's times like these I freestyle biased opinions every other sentence
My journalistic
ethics slip when I pass them off as objective
'Don't gimme that ethical shit.'
I've got exclusive,
explicit images to present to impressionable American kids
And it's time to show this world
how big our edifice is!

That's exactly what they attacked when a typically dark skinned
Disney villain
Used civilians against civilians and charged the trojan horses into our
buildings
Using commercial aviation as instruments of destruction
Pregnant women couldn't
protect their children
Wheelchairs were stairway obstructions
Now I have to back petal...from
the shower of glass and metal
Wondering how after it settles we'll find who provided power
to radical rebels
The Melting Pot seems to be calling the kettle black when it boils over
But
only on our own soil so the little boy holds a toy soldier..
And waits for the suit and tie to
come home. We won't wait 'til he's older
Before we destroy hopes for a colder war to end
'Now
get a close up of his head...'

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop Is Out Of Stock
Hang Myself...Half
Mast

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop is Out of Stock
I hang myself while the stock markets
crash

The city is covered in inches of muck
I see some other pictures of victims are up
Grieving
mothers are thinking their children are stuck
Leaping lovers are making decisions to jump
While
holding hands...to escape the brutal heat
Sometimes in groups of the three
The fall out
goes far beyond the toxic cloud where people look like debris
But all they saw after all was
said...beyond the talking heads

Was bloody dust with legs looking like the walking dead
calling for meds
Hospitals are overwhelmed. volunteers need to go the hell home
Moments
of silence for fire fighters were interupted by cell phones
Who's going to make that call
to increase an unknown death toll?
It's the one we rally behind
He's got a megaphone...and
he's promising to make heads roll
So we cheer him on, but asbestos is affecting our breath
control
The less we know...the more they fabricate...the easier it is to sell souls
An addictive
24 hour candle light vigil in TV's
Freedom WILL be defended...at the cost of civil liberties
Viewers
are glued to television screens
Stuck... cause lots of things seem too sick
I use opportunities
to pluck heart strings for theme music

I'll show you which culture to punp your fist at and
what foot is right to kiss
We don't know who the culprit is yet...but he looks like this
We
know who the heros are. Not the xenophobes who act hard
'We taught that dog to squat.
How dare
he do that shit in our own back yard!'

They happened to scar our financial state and char our
landscape
Can you count how many times so far I ran back this same damn tape?
While a camera
man creates news and shoves it down our throats on the West Bank
With a 10 second clip put on
constant loop to provoke US angst

So get your tanks and load your guns and hold your sons in
a family huddle
Because even if we win this tug of war and even the score...humanity struggles
There's
a desperate need of blood for what's been uncovered under the rubble
Some of them dug for answers
in the mess...but the rest were looking for trouble

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop Is
Out Of Stock
Hang Myself...Half Mast

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop is Out of Stock
I
hang myself, don't waive your rights with your flags
