Freedom belongs to every living thing on the Planet

Freedom won on a distant battlefield

Gallant words to remember them by

Unspoken tears for the old to cry,

A game for the young to play

Never a thought for freedoms way

.

For tyrants are easy to spot

Peaceful takeovers not,

Look through the haze

.

For when wheat replaces the meadows

The birds have no home

When forests are felled,

Extinction will come

You are a commodity,

For globalisation has won

.

When TV calls caressing your soul

With the next discount, and

“Yes its free fitting”

Without a shot being fired

Your future mortgaged

.

And when your ration of bread

Demands the last fish in the sea

Neatly Packaged and dolphin free

Who will pay the price?

.

This is the legacy

There is no escape

Big brother is watching

.

Mankind in a zoo of its own creation

Come, peer through the bars at,

This condemnation of society broken

For freedom lies on the other side.
