about

A USA army IT analyst named Chelsea Manning, disturbed by footage she saw and information she read in relation to the ongoing “War On Terror”, believed the information should be released to the public to lift the “ fog of war and reveal the true nature of 21st century asymmetric warfare.” After the release of the documents through Wikileaks she was arrested, tortured, convicted and sentenced to 35 years by the US government. She is hailed as a modern hero by many and has support networks all over the world.

lyrics

I am Chelsea Manning
Can you hear my voice
Crying out from this cell were ill be forever more.

I am Chelsea Manning
1000 days still no trial
Tortured all for tryin to show you the murder of innocent lives

I am Chelsea Manning
And If you speak the truth...
Beware for what they do to me they do unto you.

I am Chelsea Manning
To the State the media whores
For the brutal death of war once revealed cannot be ignored

I am Chelsea Manning
It's coz they're so afraid
The game is up n playin out, the tyrants world goes down the drain.

For justice, truth and peace won't be silenced,
From us you'll never hide it.
Freedoms born in hearts of love
Coz democracy has died behind closed doors.

I am Chelsea Manning
What kinda world we want?!
The future of America is the future for everyone.

I am Chelsea Manning
Just another private maimed
While the public stand to lose it all the private world will gain.

I am Chelsea Manning
Lets send the rich to war
Let them fight their battles coz we ain't doin it anymore.

I am Chelsea Manning
Don't you realise
Every war waged fuels terror in our children's lives.

I am Chelsea Manning
Look what we've become
When you support armies killing people its death by association.

For justice, truth and peace won't be silenced!
From us you'll never hide it.
Freedoms born in hearts of love
Coz democracy has died behind closed doors.

I am Chelsea Manning
Calling from the grave
Born '87 in land of the free home of the slave..

I am Chelsea Manning
I gave my life so we
Could maybe one day know the power of what real freedom should be.

I am Chelsea Manning
Will you recall my name ?
When you vote for another leader who promises real change.

I am Chelsea Manning
Look at all the lives we've broken
From Iraq and Afghanistan and free the Palestinians

I am Chelsea Manning
Standing with Assange and Snowden....
And everyone who's in pursuit of truth for all the good of man
