FREEDOM

FREEDOM

Freedom rained down on my head
It mustve been about 3 am
Thats what theyre callin it … freedom
Unless youre on the receiving end


Freedom
Freedom. Where are they when you need em?
Freedom
Freedom. Youre human rights? You dont need em!


He went to war for the government
He came back with disfigurement
Now he needs some kind of treatment
They cut the VA check and his benefits?


Freedom
Freedom. He went to war for their freedom
Freedom
Freedom. Are they there when you need em?


We ask the men sitting on the hill?
They say its necessary to maim and kill
Theyre willing to send anyone
Except, of course, not their son

Freedom
Freedom. We believed in their freedom
Freedom
Freedom. Hmm. At what price freedom?

Pres Bush recently said that people are "unsettled" that's how people get when we are at war. Gee, I'll admit I'm unsettled, you see, I can now be picked up, held without council or phone call, based on someone's suspicion that I'm a terrorist. One is no longer allowed to hold an opionion other than what the decider decides, which makes us, acording to his logic, with them.
