Lyrics

Little Johnny brought a gun to school today
He's gonna get mad and blow his friends away
His daddy works to hard and didn't have the time
The IRS took every last dime

Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore

His daddy fought a war in a foreign land
He came home hated, I just don't understand
His daddy works so hard but couldn't pay the bills
Maybe we should go to Capitol Hill

Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore

(Sermon)
There was once a time in this country
When you trust that your government was doing the right thing
When familes would make the ultimate sacrifice and fight liberty
There was once a time in this country
When families could survive off the income of person
Now it takes two people just to keep your head above water
There was once a time in this country
When schools didn't have to have metal detectors to keep your children safe
Now TV is raising your children and the streets run red with blood
There was once a time in this country
When people had too much pride to live off of the welfare of others
Now half of your income goes to the social programs that won't be there when you need them
So I'm calling out to all of my brothers and sister to stand up and take pride in your nation
Because freedom just isn't freedom anymore

The next door neighbor, living off of us
She's got a brand new car while we take the bus
Johnny's still locked up in that jail cell
When did this country go to hell

Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore
Freedom isn't freedom anymore

(Sermon 2)
Brothers and sisters, listen to me now
It doesn't have to be this way
Never in history has there been a country like ours
We can still show the world what made this country so great
Believe me, it really is simple
All it takes is passion, hardwork, dedication, and the desire to change
You can't just say it's the other guy anymore, we all have a responsibility
It's our country, do your duty and take it back.
Do you hear me? Take it back!
Because freedom can be freedom again
