All night out on the streets I got the back of all my friends We never want to go back home Never want the night to end Chorus:
Because we want to be... FREE! We want to be...FREE! Bridge:
The schools that they send us to are prisons The same can be said for their churches too I don't want my mind or my arms tied in bondage I don't want to be another cloned state tool When I'm with my friends, when I'm at a show- That's when everything is ok That's why I follow my heart each and every single day Single day... EVERY SINGLE DAY!

    General CommentAnti-Flag is possibly the most intelligent and human rights activist bands out there. For this I love them, and everything about their music is so kick ass.

    This song is about how kids don't deserve to be controlled. They are people with feeling and intellect just like adults and they don't need to be ordered around constantly by parents, religions, schools, cops, the government, etc. Youth (especially in Western Countries) deserve so many more rights. Talk about it being foolish that you can go to war but not drink alcohol. In lesser developed countries peole get married and start families at 13

    Anti-Flag sings a lot about freedom which is very cool.

    "You can't seperate peace from freedom, cuz no band can be at peace unless he has his freedom." Malcolm-X

    that quote applies to youth as well
