Makeshift Patroit Lyrics - Sage Francis

Review The Song (18)



Frank, what's up man?

I'm just watching some bullshit
On the news. It's fucking bullshit
Reporters trying to a fucking win an Emmy.

(X3)
Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop Is Out Of Stock
I Hang Myself at Half Mast

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

Coming live from my own funeral, beautiful weather offered a nice shine
Which is suitable for a full view of a forever altered skyline
When times like these arrive I freestyle biased opinions every other sentence
Journalistic ethics slip when I pass them off as objective
sponsored links
"Don't give me 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 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
I Hang Myself at Half Mast
”How does my hair look”

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop Is Out of Stock
I Hang Myself at Half Mast
“Run that tape back”

Makeshift Patriot
The Flag Shop Is Out Of Stock
I Hang Myself at Half Mast
“Looks just like a movie”

It’s the make shift
The 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 was far beyond the toxic cloud where people look like debris
But all they saw after all was said...beyond the talking heads
Was the bloody dust with legs looking like the walking dead calling for meds
but Hospitals are overwhelmed. Volunteers need to go the hell home
Moments of silence for fire fighters were interrupted by cell phones
Who's gonna 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
we cheer him on, but asbestos is affecting our breath control
The lesser we know...the more they fabricate...the easier it is to sell souls

(Man talking)
There is a new price on freedom, so buy into it while supplies last.
Changes need to be made;
No more curbside baggage,
Seven pm curfew,
Racial profiling will continue with less bitching.
We've unified over who to kill, so until I find more relevant scripture to quote,
Remember, our god is bigger, stronger, smarter, and much wealthier.
So wave those flags with pride, especially the white part.

We sell an addictive 24 hour candle light vigils in TV's
Freedom will be defended...at the cost of civil liberties
The 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 pump your fist at, which foot is right to kiss
we don't really know who the culprit is yet...but he looks like this
we know who the heroes 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 ten 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
Cos 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
I hang myself at half mast.
(3x)

It's the makeshift
The patriot
The flag shop is out of stock
I hang myself.
Don't waive your rights with your flags.

1) as someone had pointed out previously, Rush L. Is conservative. 2) get an education. You throw the word " faggot" around like you know what it means, and you don't. Please don't EVER use that word to someone. It is the most disgusting word to ever exist in linguistics. 3) This song tells the truth in the manner that it shows the true use of media to sway people a direction, and it shows the unethicalness that government and greed can cause. No one can legitimately express why it occurred with out looking at it from an Extremest point of view. America is no better than the country or people that attacked it. " the pot seems to be calling the kettle black when it boils over."



yeah? fuck yeah! | Reviewer: captain boomington | 5/18/11

all you guys who reacted to 'george bush' are hilarious.

He's obviously a teenager who is being inflammatory, and a dick in the process.

unfortunately there are people out ther who don't and will never get it, but those people don't go round saying limbaugh was a liberal as righty or lefty pretty much everyone knows that he's a power mad conservative.

Anyway, I love how this song flows, and portrays the media as what they are really. naysayers just suck ass, as this song tells nothing but truth in the most eloquent and upfront manner.

calm down, people..

focus on what got us here in the first place. tut tut tut.





Double Yuh | Reviewer: Frank | 11/28/10

So I guess I would voice my opinion with "ya'll" and explain to the reviewer who is George Bush why he is stupid and how a 19 year old is more intelligent than his redneck ass.
First and foremost you should know that we should no longer be overseas fighting a war for oil.....stop bullshitting yourself. It's for the gain of oil in the Middle Eastern countries. Secondly, I am not a liberal at all and differ on many views with them. That being said I agree completely with my "faggot friends" and say that George W. Bush handled the whole situation with terrorists like a blind person trying to pick out his favorite porno. Bush lied to the people and said there were all these WMD's when in actualality the only threat was Anthrax (Which there is a cure for now). You should know that we are fighting a war that will never have a winner. He only said there were weapons to get the support of the American people in a time when we were still vunerable and in shock of 9/11. Thanks to his Patriot Act, our freedom is worthless. I mean we have full body scanners at the air port and we have to take off our shoes now. So yes Bush's legacy will be revealed in 20 years going down as not the worst president ever but probably one of the worst. So why don't you put away your shotgun, stop beating your wife, get some facts, and come back with some sense because I would love to do this again. I do like to believe that all's well that ends well so I'll end this with a fuck you and have a nice day :)



Dear "George Bush" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/26/10

You're obviously very under-educated, just based on your use of the word "ya'll." That's not a real world. Also your abuse of the word "faggot" is another reason why you're obviously poorly educated.
One more thing, Rush Limbaugh, not even CLOSE to being liberal.

Take your shitty abuse of the English language, stay down south in your hick town and please do not ever resurface on this page ever again, you conservative, idiotic person.
I would have used bigger words, but I'm sure you would've needed a dictionary, if you even know how to use one.



re: conservative down there | Reviewer: da guy | 5/27/10

Imma go on a rant here.

Okay so twenty years from now we are going to remember as the president who could dodge a shoe but not two losing wars and a terrorist attack. Furthermore you strike me as a full of shit stuck up conservative asshole who does as FOX tells him too.
I don't use a war to say how corrupt the government, I use it as a way to learn from our mistakes. The mistake here, as you put it, letting ourselves being so caught in rage, xenophobia, and fear that we began to view the war as moral.
Oh and lastly the day that limbaugh says anything liberal is the day that FOX airs something nonpartisan.
PEACE MA FUCKA



idiot | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/24/10

"(even limbaugh, your left-wing leader said there were WMD in iraq"

when on earth was limbaugh even slightly liberal?!?! get your facts straight...your conservative education clearly hasn't served you well



re: blind bush follower | Reviewer: Iustus | 4/12/10

Sage Francis is prophetic no matter which way u look at it! This song has so many layers to it...it is difficult to analyze just one! From the corporate medias explotation of tragedy...to the cover up behind 9/11! YOU are correct about one thing...20 years from now the truth will be seen by all! If you (bush lover) had actually done any research about the events that took place leading up to the attacks...you would realize who and why we went to war in Iraq...as a veteran of that war ...I can attest to the gross amounts of money being procured thru so called"nation building! " The neo cons are after one thing..my ignorant friend..more money...more power! You might have made some sort of argument for radical patriotism...had u not littered your comment with bigotry slander...oh well...hopefully u wear condoms...that way the idiocy ends with you! Keep up the intellectual dialogue Sage!...and I will keep listening!

beaverzeal | Reviewer: beaverzeal | 9/20/09

i'd like to report the user 'george bush' for using offensive language. apparently his 'conservative' education got in the way of letting other people enjoy artistic expression and discuss it on a mature level. please delete his comment and mine when you do so others that happen upon this site wont be turned away by ignorant out cries. oh and that bit about 20 years in the future isn't going to help the worst president in history sell books. What's george bush doing nowadays, hope hes not back on that coke binge!



The guy below me can blow me | Reviewer: Fuqu Bush | 9/5/09

Congress didnt approve his war with Iraq first of all you idiot and it was the first pre-emptive war in the history of this great country. So that truth is already out. The other truth that is out is that GW Bush Did more damage to freedom then any terrorist could dream by way of the patriot act, the military commissions act, and loads of executive orders(Homeland Security happened under his watch to!). You should really know something about the guy you think is great before you sound off you fuckin idiot. Kill yourself.
