So Free

Story Behind The Song

Bin Laden Started this war nonsense years ago and excellated it on us with 9-11. I was in the airport One month after the towers and I had a travel guitar with me and I started writng this song about soldiers walking through our airporrts while I was waiting for a plane. I just made up the melody and the idea came out and I polished off the words later. This song is a Fast More Positive Version that I call the Applecrest Peace Rally Version of Letter to My Enemy with the same message and a different ending.

Song Description

Americans are blessed because our government grants us the rights God gives to Every Human being. Other lands hate this right, and some of their hatred is justified, BUT their ACTIONS of Killing Revenge and Suiside ARE NOT THE ANSWER. So this song is a Celebration of American Freedom with a Few Thoughts Thrown Out To the Terrorists to THINK ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING. DUH ! I'm pissed off too, but come on, killing a bunch of people and myself is THE LAST THING I'd Ever Do. Who are these terrorists Listent TO ? How can this be ?

Lyrics

Soldiers with guns are walking through the airports, and its worrying me
There?s a man somewhere halfway round the world, doesn?t like the fact that I?m free.
Well I didn?t choose my parents, Didn?t choose my country at the time of my birth
I didn?t get to choose my color or my race, No No, For all that its worth
But I gave a little thought to the rhyme and the reason that made us such a great land
And I?ve come to conclude my country guarantees the right God gives to every man
chorus
To be free - so free -
verse 2
Well I go to work, And I come home in the evening and spend time with family and friends
And by the grace of God you know tomorrow I hope to do it again
And you look kinda funny with those shaggy beards and the things you wear on your hair
You know I can?t help thinking that maybe you?re a lot like me, way over there.
But if your leader?s preaching hatred and terror, then his god can?t be true
And I?m asking you to use a little common sense, To see that he?s using you
chorus

You?re not free - No - You?re not free
bridge
And we?re not the chosen ones, and this ain?t no promised land
So the only reason you can hate me so, Is because I?m American
But I wonder who you leader?s talking to, when he?s bowing down all day
And then he sends you off to your death , while he hides out in a cave
That should never be, Never never never
verse
Well I never met a good man living on earth, but for a while some fooled me
Cause everyone?s a sinner and no one?s a saint, You know hardly anyone can see
That the body you?ve been given is a temporary home with the real person living inside
And it comes with it?s own built in conscience, Man you know wrong from right
Now do you blame my country, or my color or my race, For what?s happened to you
(don?t blame me, it wasn?t my fault, now can?t you see)
I?m really getting tired of hearing those lies, But you know I once believed them too
bridge 2
And if you?re the chosen ones, on the way to the promised land
How come your leader has millions stashed away, And your children are still eating sand
You message should be peace and love, Not terror, killing and hate
You Better figure out who you?re listening to, because you?ll wind up in the flames
You?re not free, No no no no
verse
Well I really love my family and my country, And I thank the ones before me
But we don?t all have to think the same thing, We can still live in peace
chorus
And we?re free, We?re so free
And that?s what my country America - guarantees to me
I can go where I want, Say what I want, Do what I want, When I want, Be what I want to be
I?m Free
