Freedom Fighters

Mighty Big Brothers are watching all people from distance, 
Trying to hack every brain by TV and newspapers, 
Armies of clones are unable to show resistance 
To the corrupted and biased opinion shapers. 

Feeding the crowds with lies, they don't tackle starvation, 
Playing a dangerous game, they don't care what happens. 
Fighters for freedom and thinkers who speak for the nation 
Can be destroyed and defeated by their own weapons. 

Make a repost from a blog - win a travel to prison, 
Stand in your truth till the end - it will still be unspoken. 
Those who want to be heard need a very good reason, 
That is the freedom of speech, devastated and broken. 

It is the same boring scene with some fresh decorations 
On the political stage. But we need new playwriters, 
Striving for justice in public and human relations, 
Speaking the mind of those desperate fearless fighters.
