Story Behind The Song
Personal feelings of having no one in Washington who hears or cars about me.
Comes from a frustration that people are panicked and government leaders are doing things that could hurt our country's future. We need patriots to stand up and be counted

Where are the brave and true
Who did what they said they'd do
Good men to keep our country strong
Now we got compromise
Nobody wants to stand and fight
All they want to do is get along
No more patriots. Just politicians.
Who speaks for the common man
That fights our wars and works the land.
That hauls freight and pays his bills on time.
All we got is empty suits
Who wouldn't even know the truth
If it came and hit em between the eyes
No more patriots. Just politicians
I can swear I hear the call to revolution.
From the men who fought and died for our constitution.
It would be the saddest day for us to fall.
Give me liberty and justice for us all.
It comes down to me and you
To know just what to do
If we keep going down this path we're on.
We gotta keep hope alive
For our nation to survive
It's what a patriot would want
So few patriots. Just politicians
We need true blue patriots. Not politicians
