When Freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free. Songs are all accounts of free speech and personal liberties in a time of oppression.

"When my son was 10 years old, he was punished at school for refusing to stand and sing the national anthem, and subsequently for refusing to pledge allegiance to the flag, which to him, stood for war and oppression of civil liberties". (T. N.)
Ten year old in America land
sitting down to take a stand;
Won't pledge to a country at war
won't honor what that killing's for
Teacher says he disrespects
principal says that he'll infect
The other kids with free speech notions
Can't have no anti-war commotion..

When freedom is outlawed
only outlaws will be free.

Only outlaws, only outlaws,
Only outlaws, only outlaws
will be free.

You can tap my phone and read my mail.
Torture me and keep me in jail
When freedom is outlawed
only outlaws will be free.

Can't wear a peace shirt in the mall
Police get the call
Take me for a ride downtown
don't want no free speech around.
Public radio won't play
anti-war song cause today
Free speech song is treasonous
so they're gonna censor us..

When freedom is outlawed,
only outlaws will be free.

Only outlaws, only outlaws,
Only outlaws, only outlaws
will be free.

You can - tap my phone and read my mail.
Torture me and keep me in jail
When freedom is outlawed
Only outlaws will be free.

Take my books away from me
make me undress publicly;
Won't let me catch my flight
say my beliefs are dynamite.
FBI comes to my home
terrorist clues they want to comb;
They say that I'm fair game
cause of how I spell my name..

When freedom is outlawed,
Only outlaws will be free.

Only outlaws, only outlaws,
Only outlaws, only outlaws
will be free…
You can tap my phone and read my mail.
Torture me and keep me in jail
When freedom is outlawed
Only outlaws will be free.


Don't like my ancestry-oh
send me to Guantanamo
Don't tell my family
what's become of me
Don't put no coffins in the press
might cause some unrest
Old soldiers never die
just another media lie..

When freedom is outlawed
Only outlaws will be free.

Only outlaws, only outlaws,
Only outlaws, only outlaws
will be free.
You can – tap my phone and read my mail.
Torture me and keep me in jail
When freedom is outlawed
Only outlaws will be free..

Oh in the name of Homeland Security
You can make a terrorist of me
When freedom is outlawed,
Only outlaws will be free.
Only outlaws only outlaws
Only outlaws only outlaws,
When freedom is outlawed
Only outlaws will be free..
