That’s How Freedom Must Be

In Youth Rights on January 15, 2012 by edwinforyouthrights

Typed by Edwin Bonilla

In 2009, I started typing lyrics for my imaginary metal band, Rebels against Oppression. The lyrics are about youth rights, LGBT rights and overall about freedom. In addition, I have created imaginary albums for the band consisting of lyrics. The second album for Rebels against Oppression is “University of Oppression” from which “That’s How Freedom Must Be” is taken from.

“That’s How Freedom Must Be”

My fury over oppression from the federal government

Is like magma coming out because the legislature keeps

Reinforcing the imposter age of majority of 21 but

The age of majority of 18 is glorious

Credit cards have been taken over by oppression

And so has the drinking age but there must be

Direct action so that if marijuana is legalized

The legal to smoke it will be 18

That’s how freedom must be

That’s how freedom must be

Fury is the emotion to ageism so

If marijuana is legalized then compromise can’t go

Too far to make sure that the real age of majority

Goes along with smoking marijuana

Credit cards have been taken over by oppression

And so has the drinking age but there must be

Direct action so that if marijuana is legalized

The legal age to smoke it will be 18

That’s how freedom must be

That’s how freedom must be

In 2010, there was a referendum in California regarding the legalization of marijuana but the question was written in such a cowardice way, I would have voted against the legalization of marijuana. Although the legalization would do more good than good, I don’t care much about this. As the song says, I care about marijuana not being so restricted that people who are aged 18-20 can’t smoke marijuana. Because of the ageist CREDIT CARD Act, there is no fair access to credit. The requirements to get a credit card are nothing but ageist and useless roadblocks to obtain it. President Obama signing the bill was a mistake. This song is about defining youth rights.
