Freedom as a focus when chains are breaking you.
Freedom as a focus when control attempts to maintain you.
Freedom as a focus when your mind is working against you.
Freedom as a focus because that focus frees you.
They use to teach us that freedom were in their chains,
using Christ against our brains
To control powers they could not maintain.
Hesitant to look into our eyes until our backs were bloodied
And at their feet we bowed.
How many lashes did a thirty year old boy have to endure before his body was broken and his freedom subdued.
How many body parts maimed?
How many names changed,
So they could marry us to their chains?
Hundreds of years later how many things have changed?
How many different lashes?
How many bodies maimed?
How many different ways have they captured us in their modern day chains?
