FREEDOM FIGHTERS (In Reverse)



They fight against freedom
They fight to keep all fairness down,
They're fighting on the political stage
Alongside the other painted clowns.

The Australian freedom fighters
Fight against freedom in Australia,
They believe that truth and justice
Means that they're all failures.

They're fighting to promote women
Ahead of more skilled men,
They say that that's equality
And they're making it fair again.

The Department of Men's Rights
Is fighting to take away all hope,
For all the starving men out there
Barely managing to cope.

"Equality is only for women!"
That's what Big Sister says,
And the freedom fighters agree
And thus injustice stays.

Freedom fighter so they claim
But their fighting is a curse,
They're fighting for inequality
Freedom Fighters In Reverse.

THE END
