Express Ourselves As We See Fit

Democracy is about freedom of speech
Anarchy is, without a doubt, the opposite
Of democracy, liberty and freedom to wish
To hope, to dream and to confront defeat.

Brothers, sisters, express ourselves as we wish
Never, never be afraid or fearless to tell the truth
If possible or reasonable, go on the summit of the roof
To tell it like it is, to exercise freedom of speech.

Democracy ought to be a celestial or divine gift
Love was given to us at birth. Don't practice hate
There's no place for racism or hatred on Earth
Life is about living until we meet with death.

Brothers, sisters, express ourselves as we wish
Fight for your birth rights to express free speech
Love will take us a long way. Love is about peace
Reconciliation, compassion, fraternity and justice.
