"Seven Days Of May" as written by Charles Billy, Greg Christian, Luciano Angelo Clemente, Eric Stanley Peterson and Alexander Nathan Skolnick....
Put your life on the line
To hesitate is a waste of time
No giving in to repent
Unto the system of the government

It's called the People's Republic here
The propaganda so sincere
Oh, what a joke and a blatant lie
From criminals ranking high

Born a political prisoner
Raised outside of the law
I'm gonna keep on fighting
Until I die for the cause

Put an end to hypocrisy
Lead the way to democracy
No longer will be play the fool
To brutalized military rule

They started forty years ago
We never could sky yes or no
Million souls make our voice
We want the right to make a choice

Born a political prisoner
Raised outside of the law
I'm gonna keep on fighting
Until I die for the cause

Freedom, freedom calling
Out from the pain
Freedom, freedom falling
Seven days of may

They tried to show a peaceful path
Then it turned into a bloom bath
In the square they plan the game
That's when the thanks of the army came

They called the murders minimal
Described their victims as criminals
Dead souls like you and me
Who only wanted free society

Born a political prisoner
Raised outside of the law
I'm gonna keep on fighting
Until I die for the cause

Freedom, freedom calling
Out from the pain
Freedom, freedom falling
Seven days of may

    Lyric CorrectionPut your life on the line
    To hesitate is a waste of time
    No giving in to repent
    Unto the system of the government

    It's called the People's Republic here
    The propaganda so sincere
    Oh, what a joke and a blatant lie
    From criminals ranking high

    Born a political prisoner
    Raised outside of the law
    I'm gonna keep on fighting
    Until I die for the cause

    Put an end to hypocrisy
    Lead the way to democracy
    No longer will be play the fool
    To brutalized military rule

    They started forty years ago
    We never could say yes or no
    Million souls make our voice
    We want the right to make a choice

    Born a political prisoner
    Raised outside of the law
    I'm gonna keep on fighting
    Until I die for the cause

    Freedom, freedom calling
    Out from the pain
    Freedom, freedom falling
    Seven days of may

    They tried to show a peaceful path
    But then it turned into a blood bath
    When in the square they plan the game
    That's when the tanks of the army came

    They called the murders minimal
    Described their victims as criminals
    Dead souls like you and me
    Who only wanted free society

    Born a political prisoner
    Raised outside of the law
    I'm gonna keep on fighting
    Until I die for the cause

    Freedom, freedom calling
    Out from the pain
    Freedom, freedom falling
    Seven days of may

    General CommentI remember when SOB came out, the band did an interview for Metal Edge or some magazine, and they said that this song is about the Tiananmen Square uprising in China back in 1989.
