lyrics

Freedom Is A Cruel Mistress

nothing is free not even freedom
got to give something to get
you’ve got to give up your security
freedom has her debt

she may entice you for a while
she can lure you with her smile

freedom is a cruel mistress
no compromise no alibis
she’s got no use for your excuses
she’ll cut you – cut you down to size

nothing is free not even freedom
got to pay the going price
you’ve got to pay her in loneliness
freedom has her vice

she may embrace in her arms
she will hold you with her charms

freedom is a cruel mistress
no compromise no alibis
she’s got no use for your excuses
she’ll cut you – cut you down to size

freedom is a cruel mistress
no compromise no alibis
she’s got no use for your excuses
she’ll cut you – cut you down to size

freedom is a cruel mistress
no compromise no alibis
she’s got no use for your excuses
she’ll cut you – cut you down to size

freedom is a cruel mistress
no compromise no alibis
she’s got no use for your excuses
she’ll cut you – cut you down to size

freedom is a cruel mistress
no compromise no alibis
she’s got no use for your excuses
she’ll cut you – cut you down to size
freedom
