"Freedom Is" lyrics


"Freedom Is"

Home of the braves, land of the
Free, where "freedom of choice"
Just means coke or pepsi...

But I'm not buying it
They say if you're not working
You're just wasting away,
"Employment gaps look band on
Your resume..."

But I'm not buying, I'm not buying,
I'm not buying their incentives,
Their lies, their empty promises -
Just chains in disguise - while
We let them steal away our
Very lives!

Tell me why there's still a 40-hour
Work week while unemployment's
On the rise? Why do we keep
Overproducing but still it's hard just
To survive? Why does "surplus" food
Rot while hungry people die??

We're stripped of human dignity,
Forced to live in poverty, cuz in this
Land of the free our 'freedom' is
All fake. We're wage slaves to
The company, land slaves to the
Property, and tax slaves to the
Economy of the capitalist state.

It's illegal to squat or live on the
Street, but rent is extortion when
You have to pay to sleep...

But I'm not buying in.

We're just indentured servants
Living on the master's land, serfs
Trying to buy back our freedom on
The lay-away plan...
But I'm not buying, I'm not buying,
I'm not buying.
