freedom is only relative
our freedom's only relative, when everytime you watch the news,
they're beaming haunting images of
the lives lost, abused...
then we wash it down with a montage of flying flags and sauring eagles
so we stand to pledge allegiance to the lesser of two evils
a subliminal reminder, for the few at home who dare refuse
"freedom" as defined by a particular set of rules
there are those bound by chains,
kids with guns
while at home, the "free" complain of dwindling funds
beneath towering banks...
