Freedom's Banner

Unable to choose his life's pleasure
Man has suffered as a slave
Oppressed by the forces of tradition
Freedom is fought for by the brave

Through the long, dark paths of history
Sound the horn for liberty
Precious are the sun and flowers
But not so cherished as our right to be

The fight has fallen upon our shoulders
Raise the wind-tossed banner high
Strive to stand equal with your brothers
Consuming every breath until you die

Shout strong the clarion call for power
To seize yet return in due course
Dignity is your heart's battle
To pursue with passion's fullest force

Come, Liberals keep your eye on victory
Authority will never rest
Strike timeless blows for liberation
Mill's word has always been the best
