By Foti Mantis
I’ve got freedom of expression
And I’ve got freedom of mind,
I’ve got so much freedom but so little time.
I’ll struggle and I’ll stutter
And I’ll always lag behind,
I’ll exercise all my freedom until it’s a crime.
I can write many words
And I can change people’s views,
I can manipulate the mind and alter the truth.
I can pursue my own ideas
And I can make my own news,
I can convince the old to despise the youth.
I can feed people fire
And I can be fed the same fuel,
I can make a lot of money as someone else’s tool.
They’ll teach me how to answer
And they’ll teach me how to speak,
They’ll teach me how to lie for five days a week.
They can’t tell me who to love
And they can’t tell me who to be,
I was born with liberties before I could see.
Send my kisses to the judge
And send my kisses to the free,
When I die I know I’ll die without liberty.
