Lyrics
:

Take this song of freedom
Put it on & arm yourself for the fight
Don't let them blind your eyes now
Or listen to the devil liar

Feelings growing getting stronger 
But even now my hands are tied
I feel restricted I can't cut loose This ball and chain that's round my neck

What can I say that's not been said before
Until there's a better way i'm gonna stay this way

Come gather round you people to me 
And listen now to what I say

Sticks and stones will get us nowhere 
There's twenty years yet we still don't know

What have we learnt is this all we can show
There must be a better way to end the day

We've got to stand now and push on through to the other side
We must not blind our eyes
Or listen to the devil liar.

Now we're the nation of many colours 
But everybody's blood runs red
Cut our wrists and bind together
Too much blood has been spilt in hate

Do it now for your children 'cause their lives are yet to come
Do it now for you own sakes FOR FREEDOM.

We've got to stand now and push on through to the other side
We must not blind our eyes
Or listen to the devil liar.

Do it now for your children 'cause their lives are yet to come
Do it now for you own sakes FOR FREEDOM.
FOR FREEDOM.

We've got to stand now and push on through to the other side
We must not blind our eyes
Or listen to the devi lliar.
