This Is What Freedom Means

Sleeping in til two pm
To go out on the town again
About a Pint of whiskey at the bar
Then to the streets! With my guitar
I'll try to find some like minded friends
To sing and play down by the Thames
Songs of revolution
And anarchy

'Cause sometimes freedom
Is less about my idealistic notions
It's about being who I am
Not who I' m meant to be
And while I'll always fight for liberty
And strive for equality
Time spent in good company
Is what freedom means to me

I've got beliefs, ideals, philosophies
But, only one policy
To never do anything
That I don't love
Because time spent on unhappiness
Is time spent on nothingness
Gotta live while you're alive because
You only live once

And sometimes freedom
Is less about sparking a revolution
It's about sitting on my roof
Just me and my guitar
Just doing what I wanna
Is what freedom means to me
Because life isn't meant to
Be hard
Life isn't meant to be hard.

You wouldn't see me on the front line
With an angry slogan covered sign
The freedoms I concern myself with are freedoms of the mind
Because its every mans prerogative
To live how he sees fit to love
For better or for worse
Will have to be seen in time

Bridge.
D A D E
D A E E


Call me an armchair revolutionary
Or anything you want
Just because I'm not marching down the streets with you
Doesn't mean I've given up
So keep on waving black flags
I'll keep singing silly songs
And if your revolution comes
I'll be glad you proved me wrong
