Patriot

Well, you are not going to often hear a 70′s metal piece from me. I have to plead affection for genre as it is what I grew up with in my garage band days. In this piece I put to use my stratocaster copy strung up with “Not Even Slinky” string tuned to 4th lower than typical which meshes nicely with the 5 string bass whose bottom string is same B an octave below. I tried to sing Evan Harrington’s lyrics “Patriot” from 1993 but I have to admit that I still have trouble with the meter of the piece. Nonetheless the words are not something I see as being set in pretty prog rock piece :-) Session drummer 3 provides the percussion and my Fender Mustang in standard tuning run through a Marshall amplifier provides the lead guitar.

PATRIOT

Foreign thug policy for the regressive sake
Almighty influence to make
And to inforce
And to use an assemblage of course
Of conspirators getting old
While a tattered icon smoulders
A pleasing aroma to the hoard
And a certain Lord
Without remorse
Who else to carry the torch
From Managua to vanishing East Timor
To a place in the world we cannot hear anymore
Now I can tell you where my country lies:
Wherever there are spies
Even in spurts
Is where the truth hurts
Lift me up so I can see above the smoke
So I can breathe and you can choke

Reminds me that one: ~ People think I'm insane because I am frowning all the time All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy Think I'll lose my mind if I don't find something to pacify Can you help me occupy my brain? ~ (BS, Para...) ()
