It's my life for their life, so call it a free trade

from Rage Against the Machine – Without a Face Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He’s willing to die to keep his family free, so he is trading his life for their freedom. “Their life” could also mean that he’s killing someone (the oppressor) even though he knows he will get caught and die in the process. This is a pun on “free trade”, economic exchange without taxes or trade barriers.
