freedom lyrics – against all authority

every day i listened to you and nothing’s ever good enough
you’re always complaining about something
you act so godd*mn tough but all you ever do
is let someone do your thinking for you
and you have no respect for my opinion
well, at least i think for myself, i’m not brainwashed
to think like people that rule
i’m not a pool and i’ll rise, i wont compromise
and i’ll never give up

i won’t walk away
there won’t be another day
when i can say hey, hey… freedom!
hey hey hey! hey hey hey! hey hey hey!

you talk to me i see your lips move
but the words that come out aren’t yours, they’re someone else’s
you dangle from their strings beneath the wings
of the eagle you push, but i’ll never fall
i’m not the only one who’s willing to stand up
we’ve had enough, your laws just benefit you
we watch you get richer as we get sicker
and we’ll rise with battle cries and we’ll never give up

i won’t walk, walk, walk away
there won’t be another day
when i can say hey, hey… freedom!
hey hey hey! hey hey hey! hey hey hey!

every day i listened to you and nothing’s ever good enough
you’re always complaining about something
you act so godd*mn tough but all you ever do
is let someone do your thinking for you
and you have no respect for my opinion
well, at least i think for myself, i’m not brainwashed
to think like people that rule
i’m not a pool and i’ll rise, i wont compromise
and i’ll never give up

i won’t walk, walk, walk away
there won’t be another day
when i can say hey, hey… freedom!
hey hey hey! hey hey hey! hey hey hey!
