You walk past an activist, who is talking on the streets, about political prisoners, locked up in your own home state. and you think just for a minute, you think just for a second. then you say, "That can't be true! 'Cause I live in The Land of Freedom... Where no one gets the screw!"

Chorus: You turn your face, you turn your back, you say, "That can't be true!" You stay safe locked in your prefeb world, 'cause you're sure it won't happen to you. You're sure it won't happen to you. Just wait 'til it happens to you!

You heard it every day, since the first day of your life. But you never stopped to think, what you heard was full of lies. You can't question for a second. 'Cause you're nothing but a tool. Whose blueprints are tailored and fashioned, each night by the evening news.

Chrous (repeat)

You could stand on the street, talk 'til you're blue in the face. And they would not make you stop, 'cause you have no power base. But if Dan Rather got on the Evening News and said, "It's time for revolution" The F.B.I. would fuck him up so bad, he'd wish he wasn't living!

They call it America, "Land of The Free, Home of The Brave" More to the truth it's a murderer, it's the land of the Enslaved!

Chorus (repeat)
