lirik lagu five iron frenzy – anthem (live)

[verse 1]
a nation stands with heart in hand
to sing their anthem proudly
voices raised to sing their praise
of their hollow country
all this talk of freedom
and this talk of liberty
from your plastic podium
you try and convince me

[chorus]
i can’t fall anymore (do do do do)
for some silver-tongued song
freedom isn’t free (do do do do)
so let me say what freedom means to –

[verse 2]
i can’t see red, white, and blue waving in the air
i don’t hear the bombs bursting and i don’t even care
i’m sorry for my lack of faith
i’m not the greatest patriot
if this is all there is to freedom i don’t want it

[chorus]
i can’t fall anymore (do do do do)
for some silver-tongued song
freedom isn’t free (do do do do)
so let me say what freedom means to

[bridge]
pushing us a drug that you call freedom and democracy
promise us that selfishness is the means for happiness
i burned that bridge so long ago that i can hardly see
anything but solace in what freedom means to me

[reese]
say this with me:
who holds your freedom? who holds your liberty?
who holds your freedom? who holds your liberty?
[whole band]
who holds your freedom? who holds your liberty?
who holds your freedom? who holds your liberty?
who holds your freedom? who holds your liberty?
who holds your freedom? jesus christ!

[chorus]
i can’t fall anymore
for some silver-tongued song
freedom isn’t free
so let me say what freedom means to –

[outro]
it cannot mean to serve ourselves
that doesn’t mean a thing
it doesn’t mean to give the license
to seek ourselves in anything
that would be a slavery to ourselves; it isn’t free
jesus christ, the only thing that freedom means to me

[reese]
jesus christ is freedom

this is uh, this is gonna be a new song
um, it’s called a new hope and it’s also about freedom
but this freedom, um, we live in denver, colorado and uh, you guys all know what went down at columbine
well, we practice at micah’s house, which is, like, three or four blocks from there and his sister went to school there – she was, like one of the kids locked in the choir room
and uh, when we’re at home everyone’s talking about it but the thing is that they try, they try and blame that on, on video games and try and blame it on bad parenting and try and blame it on tv violence and stuff
i think all those things are bad, but i think the real problem is that mankind is dark and that without god people do things like that
and uh, so, it’s called a new hope
