We’re so free that we let political jargon sway us in who we should trust.

We’re so free that we give over our wells (and children) to men and organization that say they believe in GOD, when what’s done in the dark always comes to the light.

We’re so free that giving money to a charity somehow absolves us from serving our fellow man.

We’re so free that Life is death and death is Life 

We’re so free that the greatest sacrifice is rewarded with distain.

We’re so free we believe the lie against what we see with our own eyes 

We’re so free that guilt is based solely on the amount of money in your bank account.

We’re so free that longevity is a curse

We’re so free that the very idea of peace is seen as weak

We’re so free that my body no longer belongs to me

We’re so free that hate is tolerated while love is refuted

We’re so free that right is wrong and wrong is right.

We’re so free in this country of liberty that we’re bound.
