No master to report
No labor to resort
No shackles to me confine
The choice here is all mine
I am free
I am me
No Osama in the melodrama
No government dictating my life
I am free by the law
Freedom is my department store
Around me all creatures are free
to me, that's what should be
Freedom is not free...
there were sacrifices for you and me
Remembering the blood sweat and tears...
for freedom's endurance through the years
Thanks to those who have paid the price...
the sacrifice for freedom, is one of life
