Jenny Hval – Freedom Lyrics

Jenny Hval Freedom Lyrics

I want to live in a democracy
I want to live in a democracy
Somewhere where art is free
Not that it ever was
Not that it ever was
Not that it ever was

I want you to go beyond my name
Realism is not a measuring cup
When I listen deep, I’m not my owner
Maybe I never was
Maybe I never was
Maybe I never was

Out there is ‘the world’
Where you’re threatening the lives
Of ‘fragile individuals’ when you stir in the mud
Look to the birds
To the crowds that have dispersed
In the wounded air that we call ‘freedom’
