The third rail
This song doesn't tiptoe around the third rail of American politics, it steps all over it. Video coming soon...

Fighting for our Freedom



Theyre fighting for your freedom

Theyre fighting for my freedom

Real reasons for the war have not a thing to do with freedom

Theyre fighting for my freedom

Theyre fighting for your freedom

Not a soldier in no war is fighting for your freedom except for maybe Bradley Manning



Always hearing how our boys are fighting for our freedom

But to speak the truth about ems tantamount to treason

They say the reason for the wars is to keep freedom alive

But that shit has not been true since bloody nineteen forty five



Truth is all of it is bullshit; it justifies eternal war

Though its said a million times it still is only modern folklore

Peace has never had a chance, not when greed is in the way

Profiteering and the devil seems to always win the day



Theyre fighting for your freedom

Theyre fighting for my freedom

Real reasons for the war have not a thing to do with freedom

Theyre fighting for my freedom

Theyre fighting for your freedom

Not a soldier in no war is fighting for your freedom except for maybe Bradley Manning



Over there they blow up schools and do it in our name

Their only real orders are to torture kill and maim

To keep the complex running strong more of war is always needed

Eisenhower had it right but his wisdom wasnt heeded



We are there to harvest poppies and were there to pump the oil

Though it seems to speak this truth somehow renders me disloyal

We must all just stop this nonsense that these wars are for our freedom

Then well stop the bastards who really are committing treason



Theyre fighting for your freedom

Theyre fighting for my freedom

Real reasons for the war have not a thing to do with freedom

Theyre fighting for my freedom

Theyre fighting for your freedom

Not a soldier in no war is fighting for your freedom except for maybe Bradley Manning
