afraid to be free...

you are afraid to be free
freedom means being responsible

those who are killed are soon forgotten
killers wear a new make-up
and invite you to their salon

you are afraid to be free
freedom means being responsible

those who are responsible are soon killed
the irresponsible wear new masks
and invite you to their ball

you are afraid to be free
freedom means being responsible

those who never forget are soon freed
the forgetful wear a sad face
and invite you to your funeral

Great. Like words carved in stone.
