Freedom is all I have to say in defense
Of what people are becoming
People hell bent on choosing what’s right
Telling us how to live our lives
It’s time to break free and *** what they say
*** their hate equality is what we need
Equality for every man, sex, and sexuality
Stand up for what is right
Too long have they starved us on neglect
And then fed our bellies with fear
Dramatize with promises never fulfilled
Words they have choked on and yet we still listen
Now we are loosing ground and falling faster
Into a life that no one should have to live
And what did you expect a perfect nation
Raised by T.V. sets abandoned every mile
We never get respect, never a fair trial
no one gives a *** as long as we smile
We have spilt our blood for them
Cried our tears over the ones we lost
We are the voice of this nation
It’s time to stand united have our voice be heard
I’ll be standing right here
Falling and fading away
Fighting for a cause and principle
I’ll die 1,000 times
Before I ever become them
