We’re Not Free

We’re Not Free

We are not free
We can not be
Look out, can’t you see
We’re under lock and key

They know where we be
They know what we see
They have our hopes and dreams
They made our realities

We are not free
We can not be
Look out, can’t you see
We’re under lock and key

They have what we seek
They form what we believe
They have what we need
They’ve chosen our destinies

We are not free
We can not be
Look out, can’t you see
We’re under lock and key

They made us fearful
To thread off the lines
They made us timid
To voice what’s on our minds
They molded us all the same
They made us think it’s too bad
It’s too bad to change

We are not free
We can not be
Look out, can’t you see
We’re under lock and key
