Who's really free?

Today's the date
save my place
I need a warm embrace
of a face
so I can communicate
Anything will do
maybe too
we'll follow you
into some dark and seedy

You can find parking
30 minutes away
If you can find parking
you're gonna have to pay

There's no cover tonight
so there's no fear of missing out
We're gonna play through the night
until they shut this place down too
There's no cover tonight
so there's no fear of missing out
We're all dying inside
in this affordable funeral

The sky is full tonight
they're tearing buildings down
left and right
while the cranes
drop the condos on top
You can't stop
all the change
they've signed away
all the beauty and gain
for our struggles and pain

All these people
Wanna push us away
All that we want is a place
for us to live and to play

Who's really free?
We're going to play out in the streets
in this affordable funeral
