Making sense of the good, the bad, and the worst
Creates a world that's larger than ours
From the tip of your tongue to nib of your pen,
There's colours that flow across the lines,
If you break it all down to just words on a page,
You'll crumble and you'll fall in a sanitized rage.
Yes, you'll feel bad for times in your life,
That's just the beauty of thought, and absolutely being alive.

If we only shoot first, then we have already lost.
We'll lose the right to reply.
I'd rather read something that fills me with hate
than never read anything again
So, learn to respect and earn the respect,
Of the power of freedom of speech

Through the Freedom of speech, comes the Freedom of thought
the Freedom of peace and the Freedom of war
The Freedom of religion,
and the Freedom to believe in absolutely nothing at all

So, if you sit on the left or you sit the right
Or bide your time sitting on the fence,
It's the Freedom of Something and Everything,
And if we lose it we have Nothing.
If we lose it we have nothing at all.
Lose it we have nothing
lose it we have nothing
Absolutely nothing at all.
