In America we have so many freedoms. And we seem to abuse them all, especially the freedom of speech.

Free to offend

never caring what they say.

Well, freedom of speech wasn't meant this way.

 

They're free to destroy

free to say more.

They've called me a jerk, they've called me a whore.

 

They're free disgrace

and defile a girl's body.

"Freedom of speech, we ain't hurting nobody."

 

They're free to run wild

like life is a game.

Yet I can't stand here and declare the Lord's name.

 

No matter what they say

there's no freedom they can give

that can take away my right to live.
