Repeat after me
"I want to be free!"
I want to seize the american dream
With a white picket fence 
Encompassing me
Repeat after me
"I want to be free!"
Work and pay taxes
And fantasize about a life of luxury
Repeat after me
"I want to be free!"
Fall in love and be wed
And raise a family
Repeat after me
"How do I define being free?"
Blindly accepting the ideolgies of others
or allowing your own self to see
Your own hopes and ambitions
To attain what you truly wish to achieve
And that is not american
But a Universal Dream
