(VERSE ONE)

I watch the news, I read the paper

The stories they haunt me

I hear about a star or politician who has to

Take back their opinion

And I wonder….

(Chorus)

Are we truly free?

To be who we want to be

People stand up and fight

For what you believe

This is the land of the…free?

(VERSE TWO)

Doesn't the Constitution say…

'Freedom of speech'?

I understand we can't say anything, but

I want to know….

Why can't I say what I believe?

(Chorus)

Are we truly free?

To be who we want to be

People stand up and fight

For what you believe

This is the land of the…free?

(VERSE THREE)

I don't believe that homosexuality is right

I believe that abortion is a sin…..

But if I were to say that in front of a camera

People would come to arms and call for an apology

(Chorus)

Are we truly free?

To be who we want to be

People stand up and fight

For what you believe

This is the land of the…free?

(VERSE FOUR)

If you don't speak up (yeah, yeah)

You will lose this freedom

You have to let the leaders know

That…..

We are free

And we can believe what we want to believe

(Final Chorus)

We are free

So stand up and fight for what you believe

This is the land of the free
