Why is one man raised above another?
Thinking he's better just because of a color
Why does one man think he can choose who belongs?
Thinks he can choose who stays or who gets pushed along
How can we call ourselves the land of the free?
When we mistreat those who had to be freed
We say we want to stand against war's desolation
But all I see is a want for domination
How can we call ourselves the land of the brave
When we can't even rise up against a president who treats women like sex slaves
But if I open my mouth and say how I feel
I get pushed aside "Oh it's not such a big deal"
Why is it that I am forced to sing about freeman
When I barely see my brothers treated as humans
Why is that I am forced to sing about victory and peace
When refugee's, muslims, and immigrants are told that they need to leave
But none of this is ever seen
For we live in the land of the free
We live in the land of the brave
We live in the land of victory and peace
We live in a land full of lies
