[Verse]
         E                             A
There is no greater tool that you have than your voice
    A            B         E
And nothing can take it away
        E                         A
You can use it for justice or the freedom of choice
    A         B              E
Let no one dictate what you say

[Chorus]
           A                    E      
Speak your mind, you’re not too young, you know
    B                C#m
The future’s in your hands
    A              E
No religion man or leader
    B
Can keep you from this stand
           A                 E
Of all the wonders, both natural and built
   B                      C#m
Skyscrapers to mountain peaks
      A                       E      
Yeah, none are permitted to silence, you hear
     B         A          E
Long live the freedom of speech
B   A  E
Ah ah ah

[Verse 2]
          E                            A
There’s a light that shines in the darkness
    A          B          E
Let nothing be hidden away
        E                    A
For the power belongs to the people
             A            E             B 
When there’s truth in the words that we say
        A                         E
Give me critics and writers, reporters
       B                 C#m
Take a hit and open your eyes
      A                          E
Yeah, knowledge is power and the freedom of press
       B         A           E   E7
Is the power without taking sides

[Chorus]
           A                    E      
Speak your mind, you’re not too young, you know
    B                C#m
The future’s in your hands
    A              E
No religion man or leader
    B
Can keep you from this stand
           A                 E
Of all the wonders, both natural and built
    B                           C#m
And oceans from the east to the west
      A                         E
Yeah, nothing can stop you from pushing the pen
     B           A          E
Awh, this is the freedom of press
B  A  E
Ah ah ah
B  A  E
Ah ah ah

[Verse 3]
        E                                  A
We have heard that there’s strength in our numbers
         A          B            E
Where we gather our voices are loud
        E                        A
Use the right that you have to assemble
     A            E          B
In a peaceful and powerful crowd
            A                  E
We have all heard of walls and division
          B                      C#m
We should always chose love over hate
         A                        E
There is only one wall built with wisdom
             B            A              E
It’s the the wall between church and the state

[Chorus]
           A                    E      
Speak your mind, you’re not too young, you know
    B                C#m
The future’s in your hands
    A              E
No religion man or leader
    B
Can keep you from this stand
       A                       E
We can always take care of our neighbors
          B                      C#m
We should gather, report, and be kind
         A                      E
Remember no one can silence the masses
           B              A             C#m
No one can speak you from speaking your mind
      A                      E
Yeah, no one can silence the masses
           B             A             E
No one can keep you from speaking your mind
B   A  E
Ah ah ah
