"Declaration" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
Freedom is all I have to say in defense
Of what the world's becoming
A nation hell bent on choosing what's right
And how we all should live our lives
Fuck their ways it is time to break free
Fuck their hate acceptance is what we need
Equality for every race, sex, sexuality
And every choice to live our lives
And to you bigot cretin ignoramus
Mind your own goddamn fucking business
Holding onto what makes us whole
Never letting their poison take control
Freezing the air (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
Freezing the fear (that stands between all of us)
Closing the eyes (bear witness to me)
I'll be right here
Falling away
Fighting on principle
I'll die a thousand times
Before I'll ever be them
Burn the scriptures
Bury the governing
Free yourself
Break the structures
Declare freedom

    General Comment"It's time to take action against those who are poisoning this world. The powers that be are telling us how to live our lives, trying to force feed us their fucked up morals. The truth is that "all men are created equal" "no matter race or creed or gender" and it is in the responsibility of the youth to take a stand against the hate that the dictators of this country are creating. Our country is teaching hate against other races thanks to a redneck retaliation agenda, our country is preaching hate against love between people because of their sex, our country is segregating itself in it's methods and it is time to break free. "Burn the scriptures, bury the governing, free yourself, break the structures, declare freedom."-Matt Heafy. (lead singer)

    General CommentIts about being an individual, and not allowing people to choose how we live, and what we like and dislike, and that we need to stand up and achieve real freedom instead of letting them tell us how to live and tell us we are free as long as we live like them

    General Commentoh for fucks sake get the lyrics right!

    "Fuck thier ways it is time to break free
    Fuck their hate acceptance is what we hate"?

    for fucks sake if you cant hear what hes trying to say then dont even bother listenin 2 the songs

    this song is about breaking away from governments lack of acceptance for equality and saying how we should break free from their prejudiced way of thinking

    basically declaring freedom

    how can people listen to this and fuck up the lyrics?
    should be killed....like now
