Bold is the one who dares to say what he feels
Renegation man, to no one he yields
The bleeding hearts and empty minds, hiding words they fear
Blind is the one who censors what we see and hear
Come into my world and take a journey with me
Paint me a portrait now, of the things you see

Men are poor and lost in war of ideology
No solution will prevail unless we can be
Free of anger, free of pain
Free of hatred that we obtain
Tell me what this place was meant to be

Can you see? Can you see what it does to me
Can you hear? Can you read?
Can you see what it did to me!

Totalitarians in a perilious nation
Forcing thought control turns to desolation
Listen to the leader speak he´s your only friend
Take a stand in the motherland, take it to the end

Say now what you will, before they make it illegal
Time to draw the line, between the bad and the evil
Distant times had friendly rules, became its deadliest foe
We have heard it all before, the morals come and go

Men are poor and lost in war of ideology
No solution will prevail unless we can be
Free of anger, free of pain
Free of hatred that we obtain
Tell me what this place was meant to be

Men are poor and lost in war of ideology
No solution will prevail unless we can be
Free of anger, free of pain
Free of hatred that we obtain
Tell me what this place was meant to be

Can you see? Can you see what it does to me
Can you hear? Can you read?
Can you see what it did to me, Can you hear? Can you read?
Can you see what it did to me
Can you hear? Can you read?
Can you see what it did to me...

    General CommentFuck yeah, another great classic thrash song from the gods of thrash. Anyways it seems that the song is about how here in America (and maybe some other countries) they say you have freedom of speech and can say whatever you like, yet you go and say one thing they dont like and the next thing you know, your being arrested, beat, sued, censored, etc.. even though you supposedly have free speech, (which you find you really dont)
