Free to Die

By Lee 

IF THE WORLD WAS A LOCK
AND MY VOICE WAS THE KEY
I’D SPIT THE REALIST RHYME
AND UNLOCK THE FACTS FOR ALL TO SEE
WHATS BEEN HIDDEN DEEP INSIDE
FOR THE TRUTH TO STAY A SECRET
I’M SURE MANY MEN HAVE DIED
DIED IN SELFISH USELESS WARS
FAUGHT TO PROVE A POINT
THE REASONS I’M SURE
ARE ALL MADE UP
TO GET US ALL INVOLVED
BUT ONCE ALL IS SAID AND DONE
WHAT PROBLEMS HAVE THEY SOLVED
THE SOLDIERS ARE THE REAL VICTIMS
THEIR LIVES RISKED DAY TO DAY
THE REASONS ARE UNKNOWN TO US BECAUSE
THEY’RE LOCKED AWAY
FREEDOM IS WHAT THEY TELL US
FREEDOM TO LIVE OUR LIVES
BUT FOR THE SOLDIERS AND THE WAR
VICTIMS, THEY’RE ONLY FREE TO DIE.
