Sage Francis – Makeshift Patriot

Makeshift Patriot was written and recorded by Sage Francis one month after the 9/11 attacks. It was offered as a free download before appearing on multiple compilations and ultimately finding its home on the “Known Unsoldier…Sick of Waging War” CD. This song is a response to how irresponsibly the media treated the events of 9/11. Many of the lyrics are actual news reporter quotes. The audio of the crowd cheering was a field recording Sage took at ground zero 5 days after the attack. The goal of this song was to open up a discussion about things most people were thinking to themselves but too afraid to talk about with others. We operated under an umbrella of fear and xenophobia. 9 years later, a couple wars later, a few civil liberties stripped from us later, it seems like there’s still much to be done in the way of communication, understanding and acceptance. “Don’t waive your rights with your flags.”
