The news lately is full of terror and fear,
Of all the things, we hold dear.
Freedom, equality are most rare
and threatened by evil laid bare.
We need protection that is for sure
But in order for our freedom to endure
We need to also hold our heads up high
Let the fear go by.
No county in my mind is so free
As ours continues to be.
Let common sense guide us
Ignorance not divide us.
For those that threaten free people,
Tear down each library and church steeple
Are the enemy not our countrymen.
Stand up all both men and women.
Freedom will burn and fade,
The caliphate made,
Using our own fear,
Of losing that we hold dear.
For to live without being free
Is no way to be.
Live your life, stand up proud
For the freedoms we are allowed
Are worth being brave
If our very souls we save.
