Unseen – So This Is Freedom? lyrics

When a black man can't walk certain streets
Without being hassled by the pigs
When the youth are forced into a school system
Designed to break the will of the kids
When you don't feel safe walking the streets
Of your own fucking hometown
Just cause you look different
People always try to push you around

So this is freedom?

Live in a capitalist system that says
You gotta work just to survive
But when you're stuck in a dead end job
Are you really alive?
Then they tax us on what we earn
To pay for their fucking wars
The cold war, war on drugs,
The secret war out on the poor

Go to school, learn a trade, do as I say you better behave
If this is freedom how come I feel like a fucking slave?
