Freedom won on a distant battlefield

Gallant words to remember them by

Unspoken tears for the old to cry,

A game for the young to play

Never a thought for freedoms way


For tyrants are easy to spot

Peaceful takeovers not,

Look through the haze


For when wheat replaces the meadows

The birds have no home

When forests are felled,

Extinction will come

You are a commodity,

For globalisation has won


When TV calls caressing your soul

With the next discount, and

"Yes its free fitting"

Without a shot being fired

Your future mortgaged


And when your ration of bread

Demands the last fish in the sea

Neatly Packaged and dolphin free

Who will pay the price?


This is the legacy

There is no escape

Big brother is watching


Mankind in a zoo of its own creation

Come, peer through the bars at,

This condemnation of society broken

For freedom lies on the other side.
