So this is freedom?
when a black man can't walk certain streets
without being hassaled by the pigs
when the youth are forced into the school system
designed to break the will of the kids
when you don't feel safe walking the streets
of your own fucking hometown
just cause you look different
people always try to push you around
so this is freedom
live in a capatalist system that says
you gotta work just to survive
but when you're stuck in a dead end job
are you really alive?
then they tax us on what we earn
to pay for their fucking wars
the cold war, war on drugs
the secret war out on the poor
go to school, learn to trade, do as i say you better behave
if this is freedom how come i feel like a fucking slave?
