No Freedom

We are enslaved

By ourselves

We are enslaved

By each other

 

No one is free

It is but an illusion

No one is free

It is a surreal idea

 

Freedom means

To not be held back

Freedom means

Allowance to your own will

 

Slavery means

To be restrained

Slavery means

Being told who to be

 

You hold yourself back

Trying to be perfect

You hold yourself back

Telling yourself you are wrong

 

Others trap you

Create stereotypes

Others trap you

They set an example

 

No one is free

Until no one else is there

No one is free

Unless they are alone

 

Alone in the world

No self

Alone in the world

No else

 

How to be free

Who is there to hold you back?

How to be free

Who to restrain you?

 

Yourself

Lying, loving, failing

Yourself

Hating, believing, struggling

 

Others

Smiling, laughing, exceling

Others

Inferiority complex

 

Don’t feel free

Understand you’re stuck

Don’t feel free

It’s all a lie

 

You don’t have free will

Everything is biased

You don’t have free will

Your actions are preplanned

 

You judge yourself

Comparing to others

You judge yourself

Perfection is intangible

 

The chains won’t break

Where is there to run?

The chains won’t break

When you run from yourself?

 

The key is gone

How do you escape?

The key is gone

From everyone around you?

 

You don’t run

The chains won’t ever break

You don’t run

You will never be alone

 

You don’t escape

They key has been destroyed

You don’t escape

You can’t be free

 

Freedom has never existed
