lyrics

something going on today in this fine country
free speech is on the ropes and getting beat to shit
what you say is not ok if you hurt feelings
society needs to get a fucking thicker skin

i have the right to speak my mind
even if its something that you dont like
and im not gonna apologize
for this phony outrage from narrow minds

then there comes the day
when free speech is taken away
well know we did this to ourselves

sticks and stones may break my bones but words cant hurt me
kids know this but lobbyists are fucking wimps
theyll take your job and smear your name but for what reason
soon prying eyes will realize they act the same

i have the right to speak my mind
even if its something that you dont like
and im not gonna apologize
for this phony outrage from narrow minds

then there comes the day
when free speech is taken away
well know we did this to ourselves

politicians live a life thats best kept secret
racist homophobic creeps can blend in fine
dont want a speech in which you preach moral character
when your private life is more fucked than mine

i have the right to speak my mind
even if its something that you dont like
and im not gonna apologize
for something in the motherfucking bill of rights
