Free Justice

I got no liberty
Slack in these chains don’t mean that I’m free

I can’t breathe
I can’t leave
I got eyes
They only see the pain

What happened to us
We tried
You said we were friends

I believed
Was intrigued
You told lies
More of the same
I can’t reach
Took a knee
To arise
Cuz I only had some change

Running out
Now I’m running out
To get shot down
I still refrain

But enough is enough
When you yell stop
Before I start speaking

I got a voice
I will not cop out
The cops out
Hands up but they still reaching

Land of the free
Maybe one day to be
But it’s on this land of revolution
We must sow what we reaping

Oppressed in such a beautiful dress
You impress
While we bleeding
Still believing
