Flag Shopping

Heems

Yo, we're going flag shopping

I pledge allegiance to the flag

Of the United States of America

Yo, USA

We're going flag shopping for American flags

They're staring at our turbans

They're calling them rags

They're calling them towels

They're calling them diapers

They're more like crowns

Let's strike them like vipers

I know why they mad

But why call us A-rabs

We sad like they sad

But now we buy they flags

Spying on our Muslim brother

While staring at our mother

Lover they some bad motherfuckers

We're going flag shopping

We're going flag shopping

The kids are throwing stones

We complain but they ain't stopping

On your way to the top

And now they want you to stop

Your mama pray to god

But your dad'll lose his job

 Your dad mad cause he lost all clients

Dad, why you crying?

I thought that we had the spirit of the lion

He take it out on you

His belt big like Orion's

The NSA be spyin'

We're going American flag shopping

Red, white, blue on our crib

The neighbors threw rocks at the house

They making it harder to live

They wanna shorter version

They wanna nickname

They wanna Toby us

Like we Kunta Kinte

Federal agents tap my mobile phone

And use drones to track my mobile home

The towers hit the planes

I guess it was written

But now they all lookin' at us different

They lookin' at us different

They lookin' at us different

Yo, why they lookin' at us different?

They wakin' up my friend at night for reason

They promised him freedom

Now he guilty for treason

The kids are leaving school

They're all misleading tools

And I was there

I saw the towers and the planes

And I'll never be the same

Never ever be the same

I seen things that I never wanna see again

I heard things that I never wanna hear again

And now we're going flag shopping
