lyrics

Repatriate the patriots…
Papers? We don't need no stinking papers
America was built on the back-breaking labor
Of immigrants, so unless you are indigenous
You can't claim this land without sounding like a hypocrite

You tell me what's acceptable torture
So I can issue the executive order
Minutemen thinking they're protecting the border
But Guatamalan kids? Shit, we collect them like hoarders
Draw a line in the sand to stick your head in like an ostrich
While coke clogs up both nostrils in your proboscis
Funny how one day you quote Gospels of the Apostles
Then spit hatred with the same mouth acting outwardly hostile
Like your living room is a hostel filled with pot-smoking cockroaches from Colorado
Shaking your fist like "where did all the jobs go?"
If you wanna know don't look at refugees seeking asylum
Look at receipts for all the cheap shit you bought made in China.
Stay inside your precious bubble until it runs out of oxygen
Want your country back? Walk a mile in another man's moccasins.
All politics are local, so if you live in the middle of nowhere don't tell me how to run my city, honestly I really don't care.

Repatriate the patriots…
Papers? We don't need no stinking papers
America was built on the back-breaking labor
Of immigrants, so unless you are indigenous
You can't claim this land without sounding like a hypocrite

Give us your poor huddled masses longing to be free
As long as the gate closes after my family, friends and me
You can have your so-called party, you can have your fuckin' tea,
You can criticize the takers from the lap of luxury.
You can box yourself in a certain longitude & latitude
You can rave like a lunatic until they stick you in a padded room,
That can be your xenophobic xanadu
Wanna live in the Holy Land? Afghanistan has panoramic views of sand dunes.
National Lampoon's Middle Eastern Vacation
If you hate gays move to a country where they're chained up in the basement.
Love the 2nd Ammendment? Get an AK for your 8th birthday
Gotta give it up for the Taliban, they don't give a shit about Earth Day.
Worst case scenario - you may have to give up Christmas
But grow a Santa beard & you Duck Dynasty fans can fit in.
It's thanksgiving, dig in, we'll make a happy montage
Until the triptophan knocks you out on blankets laced with small pox.

Repatriate the patriots…
Papers? We don't need no stinking papers
America was built on the back-breaking labor
Of immigrants, so unless you are indigenous
You can't claim this land without sounding like a hypocrite

What percentage of Americans could pass the citizenship test?
Surely less-than-half is a legitimate guess
Our history is a mess of genocide and slavery
But when I was in class they made me memorize make-believe
Save the Sempre Fi bravery for Marines
If you never set foot in combat boots you can clean the latrine
Wanna wage war on every thing but you got nuke-a-phobia
Think you can bomb your way into a picture-perfect utopia?
Run that up the flagpole that only goes to half-mast
The bullshit is knee-deep, good thing you stockpile gas masks
Doomsday preppers pray with pepper spray in their backpacks
Pack rats following the lead of the fat cats
The plan's been hatched and they think they're on the winning team
Touting exceptionalism, how'd that work out for the Byzantines?
It's Istanbul not Constantinople
Add up every life lost for the colonial grand total

Repatriate the patriots…
Papers? We don't need no stinking papers
America was built on the back-breaking labor
Of immigrants, so unless you are indigenous
You can't claim this land without sounding like a hypocrite

Avatar Los Angeles, California

Avatar's venom-tipped tongue has been dripping lyrical poison since the early 2000s when he first emerged on the Los Angeles underground hip hop scene. His sharp sardonic wit and barbwire-tinged delivery sets him apart and establishes Avatar as a lyrical tour de force that tackles a wide range of topics with spot-on observations that crawl directly into the listener's subconscious. ... more
