lyrics

True Freedom

Time is slipping away
Along the dreams of yesterday
When thoughts are put into a cage
Truth becomes an easy prey

And words sometimes betray
The meaning they ought to convey
They shouldn’t be left unsaid
Say what you feel you need to say

Freedom is wild and can't be tamed
You’re enslaved and you should be ashamed
Rise up and break free from your chains
And you’ll feel how liberty is more
Than a statue of steel

No one can take away true Freedom
Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,

Do things your own way
Think for yourself don’t be afraid
Your hopes will carry their own weight
Don’t let your fears get in your way

Wide awake you dream away
As you’re in a state of slow decay
Try but you’ll never wipe away
The ideal that liberty is more
Than a statue of steel

No one can take away true Freedom
Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,

Freedom bandied about as a conception
But used instead as deception
For a life we are compelled to live
Instead of a life where we give and forgive

Freedom
Doesn’t bear the stars and stripes

Freedom
Neither will proselytize

No, no, no, no
You can take away true… Freedom
(Emancipation you will bring)
Freedom,
(And your bell won’t stop to ring)
Freedom,
(If you question everything)
Freedom

You might find someday
How liberties can go astray
If you swear you won’t wish them all away
Then I got nothing more to say.
