freedom never cries lyrics – five for fighting

i took a flag to a p*wn shop
for a broken guitar
i took a flag to a p*wn shop
how much is that guitar
i took a flag to a p*wn shop
i got me that guitar
what’s a flag in a p*wn shop to me?

i saw a man on the tv
in a mask with a gun
a man on the tv
he had a ten-year old son
i saw a man on the tv
his son had a gun
he says that he’s coming for me

i never loved the soldier until there was a war
or thought about tomorrow
’til my baby hit the floor
i only talk to god when somebody’s about to die
i never cherished freedom

freedom never cries.

i wrote a song for a dead man
to settle my soul
a song for a dead man
now i’ll never grow old
i wrote a song for a dead man
now i’m out in the cold
what’s a song to a dead man to me?

i never loved the soldier until there was a war
or thought about tomorrow
’til my baby hit the floor
i only talk to god when somebody’s about to die
i never cherished freedom

freedom never cries…

you can cry for her
die for her
lay down your life for her
kiss and wave goodbye to her
anything at all

you can cry for her
die for her
make up your mind to her
anything at all

there’s a baby on the doorstep
wailing away
there’s a baby on the doorstep
longing for the day
there’s a baby on the doorstep
who’d give his life to take
a flag to a p*wn shop
a flag to a p*wn shop

may he forget why he is crying some day
