They waved their guns in my face
Kept screaming out my name
Something terrible had happened
And somehow I was to blame
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
In thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy name
May the new year that is so quickly bearing down upon us be one of greater freedom, not less; one of greater accountability, not less; one of greater justice, not less.
Then, perhaps, we will finally know greater peace. If we will it (to borrow a phrase), it is no dream.
