(People talking)
You know nothing, you have not seen a shot fired,

On the news. It's fucking bullshit.

the flag shop is out of stock,
It's the makeshift,
the flag shop is out of stock,

Beautiful weather offered a nice shine,
It's times like these I freestyle biased opinions every other sentence.
Don't give me that ethical shit.
and it's time to show this world how big our edifice is.
with a typically dark-skinned disney villain.
Using commercial aviation as instruments of destruction.
wheelchairs were stairway obstructions.
wondering if after it settles,
The melting pot seems to be calling the kettle black when it boils over,
so the little boy holds a toy soldier,
We're going to wait until he's older, though,
I'll get a close-up of his head.
Makeshift patriot,
I hang myself at half mast.

The patriot,
I hang myself while the stock markets crash.
The city is covered in inches of mud.
Grieving mothers are thinking their children are stuck,
to escape the brutal heat;
The fallout was far beyond the toxic clouds where people would like to breath,
beyond the talking heads,
looking like the walking dead calling for meds.
volluntiers need to go the hell home.
Who's going to make that call, to increas an unknown death toll?
He's got a megaphone, promising to make heads roll.
The less we know, the more they fabricate,

There is a new price on freedom, so buy into it while supplies last.
no more curbside baggage,
racial profiling will continue with less bitching.
remember, our kind is bigger, stronger, smarter, and much wealthier.

Freedom will be defended at the cost of civil liberties.
'cause lots of things seem too sick.
I'll show you which culture to pump your fist at,
We don't really know who the culprit is yet,
We know who the heroes are,
We taught the dog to squat,
They happen to scar our financial state,
Can you count how many times so far I ran back the same damn tape?
on the west bank, with the ten second clip put on constant loop to provoke US angst.
'cause even if we win this tug of war and even the score,
There's a need of blood for what's been uncovered under the rubble;
but the rest were looking for trouble.
Makeshift patriot,
I hang myself at half mast.

The patriot,
I hang myself.

Seriously, if I want to find out anything, I'm not going to read Time Magazine,
I mean, because they've just got too much to lose by printing the truth,

Even on a worldwide basis.
