"Freedom Ain't What It" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
Kerouac used to walk these roads
(I know he did, I know he did)
Miles of type strewn behind him, so
(I know how to live, he knew how to live)
Throw the I-Ching for a perfect dream
(You know he did, I know he did)
Red pills, blue pills, white pills, green
(He knew how to live, I knew how to live)

Look before you leave
Watch the company you keep
Never fall asleep
'Cause the ocean's too deep

Look before you leap
Watch the company you keep
Never fall asleep

Freedom ain't what it used to be
Ain't what it ought to be
It used to be so free
Now freedom ain't what it ought to be
Ain't what it's supposed to be
I can't even think

The Art of War was written in blood
(I know it was, I know it was)
There is no peace not borne of love
(Just because, just because)
I'm not sure who to kiss, you can't even fuck
(It's just my luck, it's just my luck)
I'm riding home on the wings of a dove
(Just because, just because)

Freedom ain't what it used to be
Ain't what it ought to be
It used to be so free
Now freedom ain't what it ought to be
It ain't what it used to be
No, I can't even think

So look before you leap
Watch the company you keep
Never fall asleep
'Cause the ocean's too deep

So look before you leap
Watch the company you keep
Never fall asleep
