"Freedom" as written by Ian Peter Cullimore and Paul Heaton....
Freedom
Housemartins

I used to think you understood
Taught me right and learnt me good
Made things simple for my brain
Told the truth and made it plain

But the implications I mistook
Until I found out whose side you took
And now with paper in my hand
I'm beginning to understand

So this is freedom - {They must be joking}
They must be joking - {If they think its true}
So this is freedom - [I doubt their truth}
So this is freedom - {For me and you}

>From the front page news to the interviews
Its sink the reds and left the blues
They pretend they're differing points of view
But it's only different shades of blue

But the implications I mistook
Until I found out whose side you took
And now with paper in my hand
I'm beginning to understand

So this is freedom - {They must be joking}
They must be joking - {If they think its true}
So this is freedom - [I doubt their truth}
So this is freedom - {For me and you}

So this is freedom - {They must be joking}
They must be joking - {If they think its true}
So this is freedom - [I doubt their truth}
So this is freedom - {For me and you}

F.R.E.E.D.O.M.
They locked us up once
So they'll do it again

C.H.A.I.N.E.D.
They locked up my friends
Now they're coming for me

From: Deise Zandona

    General CommentAnother apt song given what is currently happening - and occurred - with the British tabloid press of late and the Leveson inquiry.

    Such a shame the majority of the press in the UK are right wing - and so close with the Govt and authorities you can smell the collusion,law-breaking and agenda-setting between the three rotten establishments - to the point where they'll all probably get away it...
