what we want

we want to life in freedom so we say
to rule our lives is our greatest desire
the thing to which we every day aspire
that's the condition we wish to stay
to choose whether we work or play
we can conceive of nothing truly higher
for liberty we would go through the fire
and claim that it is truly the only way
yet we insist that we must here be led
for ruling ones to point us on the path
and that we are freest when not alone
our contradictions demand now to be fed
without a leader we'll explode in wrath
or else each sink like a despairing stone
