The purpose of "Patriot" is to rekindle America's passion for the our Founding Principles. Patriot celebrates American history, the U.S. Constitution, and the men and women who fight to defend it.

Lyrics:

Track #1

For the Heroes ©2004, M. Fitzgibbons

Whether you take me for the fool I know that I can be,
whether you see me eye to eye or if we disagree,
I'll be your friend, until the end. I'll see you through.

Whether you heal the casualties, or you kill to keep us free,
whether it's goods that you prepare, or you help bring them there.
For all you've done, for everyone. I won't forget.

Whether you feel that you're alone, or you fear your life will end,
know you've got three hundred million friends.
For everything you've done I sing. You're in our prayers.

================
Track # 3

Well-Earned ©2003, M. Fitzgibbons

In '76 with a stroke of a pen,
Jefferson declared the rights of all men:
That God made us free, and that Government serves
to protect all the rights that each soul deserves.

In '78 under cold winter skies
The troops were aware they were out of supplies.
With the food all but gone and no shoes on their feet,
They would fight till the end, till the British defeat.

Then the Bill of Rights stated what they'd earned.
And the lesson that hurt was well-learned.

For two hundred years, so many have died
So we could be free and remember with pride.
We've come a long way, and that paper is old
but the meaning is clear to all who are told.

And with the Bill of Rights wounded in the field
an American soul must not yield.

And the freedom we keep must be earned,
cause the lesson that hurts, is well-learned.

================
Track #5

I've Got To Be Free ©2005, M. Fitzgibbons

The U.S.A. is at a crucial stage
It's not because of foreign wars we wage
It has more to do with the colors blue and red.

Too many laws and too much government
Can you tell me where the Constitution went?
The Bill of Rights is just hanging by a thread.

So many people trying to cross the border
and politicians build the New World Order.
And too many minds still believe they should be lead.

Chorus:
I've got to be free the way God made men
and I won't be ruled by the damn U.N.

They're taking your right to self-defense.
They say you're safer but they don't make sense.
The dangerous ones will not turn in their guns.

All the unions always ask for more
but all we buy is made on foreign shores
There will come a day when there will be real hell to pay.

I've got to be free the way God made men
and I won't be ruled by the damn U.N.

Thomas Fitzgibbons

Matthew blends patriotism into feelings about our great country and what it cost
The words to the patriotic songs are brilliant and evoke an emotion for those of us who understand what the formation of this country cost in the form sacrifice and hardship. It also emphasises what it costs to stay free and how our freedom is under attack from outside as well as inside this country. The Patriot CD is a history lesson and a warning for us not to have to listen to the UN as we set our course of direction for this century. It is a masterpiece!!!!

Matt Fitzgibbons is a refreshing voice in an increasingly self-absorbed world. These days, when too many musical artists are focusing on meaningless blather about what's wrong in our society, Matt offers a look at what our Founding Fathers hoped we would be. If you would like a deeper look into the ideals that this great country was built on, then I recommend you get two copies of 'Patriot'. One to play and one to pass on.

Emily Olson, Managing Editor of The New Milford Times at Housato


The musical offerings on "Patriot" tell poignant stories and remind us all of the price our forefathers paid for freedom, while also providing a great musical listening experience. Matthew Fitzgibbons' message isn't lost in the music, it's enhanced by it.
