They can build golden cages for us all to live in. They can make beds of silk, cuddle us in sheets soft and thin. Dress us in a tender caress, comb our hair with care and lift us from the dirty soil. Soothe us with delicate oil. They can cook us tasty meals, sugar and salt, but cannot make our hunger for real freedom halt. Go ahead, make a wall to divide us, it won't keep us apart. Try to teach us biased history, we'll swear to never forget. Firm hands pour cups of hemlock, but can't force us to drink. They may control our space and time, but never how we think. Let every wasted seed of desire become a beautiful flower. Watch it unfold hour by hour, rise higher an higher. We pay for lives with our deaths, everything im between should be free.
