The policemen broke my door down
I asked them what was happening

Kept screaming out my name
And somehow I was to blame
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy name
My accusers formed a jury
The charges were made known to me

Yet, still I was detained
Their methods are less constrained
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy name
In our determination
We must not destroy the safeguards

Injustice such as this
And angry men to terrorists?
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy nameThe policemen broke my door down
I asked them what was happening

Kept screaming out my name
And somehow I was to blame
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy name
My accusers formed a jury
The charges were made known to me

Yet, still I was detained
Their methods are less constrained
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy name
In our determination
We must not destroy the safeguards

Injustice such as this
And angry men to terrorists?
O freedom, what liberties are taken in thy name
O freedom, what liberties are taken
What liberties are taken in thy name
