"Hey, Bobby" spoken word lyrics  Reply with quote  

Since I've been performing this piece so much recently, and since it will be on the Makeshift Patriot EP, I figured it might be something people would be interested in reading. I don't have spell check on the computer I am on right now, so I will probably have to make changes. Here it is:







"Hey, Bobby...the Masters are back
and up to no good just like the old days.
they played dead when you stood over their grave
they played dead when you stood over their grave"

By the time the flags rotted off of their antennaes,
they were questioning who the real threat is.
Big Brotherly love is the 21rst Century's plague.
no matter how bloody the glove, question evidence displayed.

never forget what two plus two equals.
don't let them upgrade your math no matter what they have as proof of evil.
remember when they went after the jewish people?
you don't recognize that same black mask as see through?

attack of the eagles. if they don't fall dead
before they reach me, I'll be damned if I don't shoot one in its bald head.
Fuck what we're force fed. All I ever wanted
was a warm bed and a house that wasn't haunted.

I'd rather die for a cause than to die just because
we exhaust natural resources forced into wars,
restoring wasteful ways, keeping other countries poor.
"Monkey see, Monkey do" I wonder what those fucking monkeys saw.

Keep rethinking the still-frames in your mind,
and guarentee they will change with time.
Your outline is pixelated with poor resultion while
dowtime is simply wasted. You were born execution style.

Head first in a trial. I'll second the motion
til the jury's bored to death and puts your neck in a notion.
The situation's volatile. A naked problem child
is trying to find the right clown costume to make his father smile

so he bombs while he tries to tell jokes.
This ain't a false alarm, can't you smell the smoke?
You're in the line of fire where they buy and sell votes.
Our sense of liberty doesn't ring true, stupid, that's why the bell broke.

Trench coat mafiosos propel rocks
at recruitment officers and rebel against cops
til they hurdle infinite circles in small cell blocks.
Turtle upon turtle til they're all shell shocked.

This so-called president got elected in a court room.
With the war efforts of pops he inherited a fortune.
We "talk, talk, talk..." so the veterans of war assume
the revolution stopped. This ain't a protest tune.

This ain't a "Love it or leave it," it's a "Change it or lose it."
I'll never sing the anthem of a nation who never faces the music,
chasing the ever-elusive caveman
in space ships that makes trips to the futures that are namebrand.

You can't roam a lost land as the last existing dinosaur.
There's no escaping ass kickings in these times of war,
replacing apples with hospitals...where doctors are hostile,
Killing two pterodactyls with one fossil.

I got you. If they don't fall dead
before they reach us, I'll be damned if I don't shoot one in its bald head.
Fuck what we're force fed...all I ever wanted
was a warm bed and a house that wasn't haunted.

"Hey, Bobby...the Masters are back,
now it's our turn to stand over their grave.
I'm a do it right this time. I'm a follow through. I'm a wait.
I'm a wait. I'm a wait until their skin decays."

In the 2 art gallery/coffee shops here, where I live, the walls are cluttered with HORRIBLE (not to mention over priced) art meant to evoke feelings of patriotism in the middle aged targeted patrons. I'm only twenty years old and my stomach turns when I think about how f'd up this country's politics are. It boggles my mind to think that people who have been exposed to all of this 30 years longer than I've been alive can be so ignorant not only about their patriotism, but their art too. Sage, thank you for expressing yourself the way you do. It is nice to have someone to relate to.

sage, very dope. you manage to take very general issues or ideas that are on peoples mind, and add your own touch to make it tasteful... i.e. makeshift patriot.
others, its okay to talk about thug life, just do it in a dope way. its not what you do its how you do. i understand wanting to hear more socially relevent topics, but hey, i'll take good music how it comes.
