We've Won



We’ve won freedom of speech
But if we’d shut up and listen sometimes
We wouldn’t have to be drowned out by screams


We’ve won freedom of worship
But if we’d tear down our idols ourselves
They wouldn’t have to be smashed from above


We’ve won freedom from want
But if we’d want righteousness
We’d want the only thing we don’t have enough of


We’ve won freedom from fear
But since we don’t fear the soul-killer
We will learn to fear everything else, even ourselves


We’ve won a right for each finger
But we use the first right finger
To kill those who challenge that our might makes right
