freedom

today we do not worry and stew about being discriminatory or unfair today we worry
about marriage being sacred while allowing lifetime partners to starve alone unfed
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
we have come to believe that the six year old child going to school not fully clothed
is less important than the billionaire becoming a trillionaire
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
blinded by greed we don’t tax the rich and give them our services
while we cut the police force and fire first responders
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
we wish to destroy the life of a single mother by declaring
single motherhood illegal as we take away her choices for being a mother
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
why is it ok to worship the seed of man as it lies  in the womb
yet declare the mother unwed not worthy of our company or food
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
the old lady down the street froze to death last night all the while
the gas company cutting her off  had the highest profits of the decade
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
i met a man today who told me how he loved to hate it made him feel
good about himself even as the war of hatred pounded at our shores
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
i watch as our principles are turned upside down greed is good
now we no longer teach science in school and nasa is nearly gone
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
the states are each broke the country lives on credit we are beholden to
those whom we hate but greed is good for all do not tax the rich
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
for it is them we wish to be like – not you
we don’t wish to see your poverty your blank stares
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
it is so much easier to love the unborn to rail and smash and burn for them
than to actually love our neighbor suffer with them feed and cloth and care for them
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
each day while crying out for freedom we allow for the killing of over
nine thousand citizens annually yes now we worship the gun or death
freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
we declare the poor as unworthy of life of services and deny them their rights
they have become the lazy the filthy those not worthy of our company

freedom for all – freedom from all – free for all
