standing rock lyrics – the whereabouts

nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah

nah nah nah nah nah

we used to live in a country
where everyone was free
we had the right to silence
we had the right to speech
but now all that is gone
you better watch what you say

with surveillance every corner
and police on every street
life ain’t what it used to be
when we met peacefully
held up our signs
raised our voice to the powers that be

we used to be free
but we gave it up for tv
we used to be free
but we gave it up for…

nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah

pack up your guitars
and rip up all your signs
your peaceful protest is met
with violent minds
of those who control you
they’ll never set you free
they tell you go to church on sundays
and work all day ‘till five
‘cause if you’re out there singing songs
you’re bound to get five to life
for loitering or being high
or any charge that you can’t find

we used to be free
but we gave it up for tv
we used to be free
but we gave it up for…

nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah

we used to be free
but we gave it up for tv
we used to be free
but we gave it up for…

i don’t have any children
but someday i might
and i hope that they will listen
and that they will do
exactly what their heart
tells them they should do
because if you only listen
to what they tell you to
then you’ll have no room for growth
and no higher point of view
you’ll never get to sing
from any place you choose

we used to be free
but we gave it up for tv
we used to be free
but we gave it up for tv
we used to be free
but we gave it up for tv
we used to be free
but we gave it up for…

nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
nah nah nah nah nah
