Lyrics:
You can't control me tell me what to do
chained in mediocrity so I can be like you
I am not a statue not part of machine
I'm sick and tired of the whole routine
calculate your future,computerise your past
instant replay if it's gone too fast
take away my freedom,take away my home
I'm only human but it might not show
I'm not made of stone
I'm a freedom fighter I got something to say
I'm a freedom fighter get out of my way
Hide behind your politics,hide behind your rules
tell me I'm a man but you treat me like a fool
it's the same old story with a different name
you give us all a number and nothing changes
out in the winter of a world upon it's knees
everyone is watching but no one sees
you can't take my freedom you know it is my right
if you try and stop me I'm gonna fight
with all of my might
I'm a freedom fighter and I'm taking command
I'm a freedom fighter and I'm making a stand
Fighting for breath as the world gathers speed
time's running out for the things that I need
I'm a freedom fighter I gotta take a stand
I'm a freedom fighter, yeah that's what I am
I'm a freedom fighter I can't take it no more
I'm a freedom fighter no no more
I'm a freedom fighter but I'm not afraid
I'm a freedom fighter get out of my way
