For the sake of the Free

 

The world is crumbling

The world is crumbling

There is no denying it the world is crumbling

Death for the sake of dying

Tears for the sake of crying

 

Hate filled politics rule the times

The criminals of our era innocent of their crimes

We are guilty of freedom

Convicted by the free

Banned from the golden street kingdom

Because we saw the crimes and wouldn’t let it be

 

How can the people who claim to protect us

Turn our freedoms against now to destroy us

Free speech, free press, free religion

 

Now pick one of the three that’s a tough decision

Is it right for a free country to deny us freedom?

Different skin or beliefs or even accent

Our rights restricted because of the conflict

In the country of the free why don’t we have the freedom?

 

The world is crumbling

The world is crumbling

There is no denying it the world is crumbling

Death for the sake of dying

Tears for the sake of crying
