They said there were liberties;

 

The spirit of a nation,

 
That allowed us to arm,
 
To carry weapons that take,
 
Lives within a fleeting second;
 
The lives also having liberties. 
 
So people nodded, clapped, 
 
Chanted the word " Liberty "
 
" Liberty " written on an old parchment. 
That was the truth, the divine right.
 
The everything that mattered. 
 
They were blindfolded with ecstasy,
 
With the illusion of freedom,
Of the phantom of a free society,
 
Where widows who lost husbands cried,
 
Children who lost parents cried,
 
Parents who lost children cried. 
 
They cried, cried, cried,
  
They died, died, died,
Creating a symphony,
That they called proudly America. 
 
There is no liberty,
That makes you cry;
That causes your die.
