So much for being free
Locked away in a catastrophe
Too many half truths
And hidden facts
Too many scare people slow to react

Why is everybody using different rules
Who’s being clever 
And who are the fools
Are we being taken for a ride
And are our leaders really on our side

Locked down and load
Under the thumb
Will we ever learn when the war is won

Somewhere the truth is out there
But we will never know
We all be so entrenched in fear
To let our fears and disagreements show

Locked down and loaded
Under the thumb
Will we ever learn when the war is won


Locked down and loaded
Under the thumb
Will we ever care if we ever learn
When the War is won
