Freedom society speaks of
Is rarely seen or heard,
Mostly because we do not have a true meaning
So we do not say a word.

Freedom means independence and
Freedom from obligation,
If we really had our freedom
Would we still be the same great nation?

If we were free we could speak and
Not have to be shunned by the press,
We would actually not have this bondage,
That as "freedom" we address.

When we do not have to cower
Before a nation that sees our way as wrong,
Then finally this word called freedom,
Will at last belong.
