Freedom at 21

Album: Blunderbuss (2012)
  • (Yeah)
    Cut off the balls of my feet
    Made me walk on salt
    Take me down to the police
    Charge me with assault
    Smile on her face
    She does what she wants to me

    That's right
    She don't care what kind of wounds she's inflicted on me
    She don't care what color bruises that she's leavin' on me
    'Cause she's got freedom in the 21st century
    (Alright)

    (Listen)
    Two black gadgets in her hands
    All she thinks about
    No responsibility no guilt or morals
    Cloud her judgement
    Smile on her face
    She does what she damn well please

    (Right)
    And she don't care about the things people used to do
    And she don't care that what she does has an effect on you
    She's got freedom in the 21st century

    Cut off the balls of my feet (Cut off the balls of my feet)
    Make me walk on salt (Make me walk on salt)
    Take me down to the police (Take me down to the police) Writer/s: JACK WHITE
