Snowden bringing truth to light
Exposing dark lies for us to see
All our lives
We’ve been told we’re living in
The land of the free

Snowden bringing truth to light
Exposing the State’s hypocrisy
Land of spies
Will you stand and fight
For your liberty?

Thank you Ed
Thank you Ed
For risking your life to open our eyes
