freedom lyrics – blues traveler

i walk right by him and he’s freezing his *ss off
he could be dead i’m supposed to walk away
i won’t remember a thing come the summertime
handful of quarters make me feel okay

ah ah who’s gonna have to pay
ah ah who do i love today

i love what’s mine cause what’s mine is all mine
gives me a reason to go get more
don’t really care where i go to get it
i ain’t too clear about “what’s yours is yours”

you take it for granted
i guess that’s what it’s for
but before you demand it
take a look out your back door

if you don’t like a single thing that i’m saying
if you’re offended when i demonstrate
don’t mean a d*mn to me and i shall continue
hope you won’t mind if i control my fate

ah ah who will i have to fight
ah ah to defend my created right

i’ll defend what’s mine cause what’s mine is all mine
it’s what i’d fight for it’s for what i’d bleed
i roll the dice on the grand experiment
while i am strong i will get what i need

you take it for granted
i guess that’s what it’s for
but before you demand it
take a look out your back door

if you’re concerned with the moral imperative
if you are tripping on the right thing to do
come to my office with the exclusive screenplay
i think there’s money in a book about you

ah ah what have you got to lose
ah ah which are you gonna choose

i choose what’s mine so what’s mine is all mine
gonna make a million on the folly of men
don’t even care about no consequences
turn my d*mnation into chapter ten

you take it for granted
i guess that’s what it’s for
but before you demand it
take a look out your back door
oh
oh yeah
