Then We Will Be Free

Then We Will Be Free

Dreams have turned to black
There is nothing to wish for
Nothing left to dream of
No future and no past
Just an instant that passes unnoticed
All because someone owns your ideas
There is no light when your mind is not allowed to work
Not allowed to have thoughts of its own
A dream may offend the few
Thoughts are dangerous if brought to light
Destructive if they are openly shared
Keep your mouth shut
Say only what everyone else says
It is the only way to be safe
To stay out of governmental censorship
Just given the ability to listen to leaders
They own our dreams and wishes
Keeping them safe behind closed doors
After all they are always right
We are not intelligent enough to think
Just wait for someone to find the light
The keys to the locked doors
Then we will dream, wish and think
And then we will be free
