Fire Of Freedom
darlin, darlin' you've put up with so much

betrayed by your leaders, abandoned by your church

i've watched you suffer, now you're older than your years

but you still look beautiful, though you're fightin' back the tears



you can break down my door, you can even strip search me

never gonna take away my human dignity

beat me, shoot me, flame keep on burnin'

never gonna put out the fire of freedom



when we were children, we thought we would be

god's anointed but the joke was on you and me

10 years later, we're still searchin' for the sun

but i want you to know that our day will come



so many hopes and dreams lying in pieces

all of us betrayed by politicians' speeches

i want you to know, i'll love you forever

our dreams will continue in the eyes of our children



out in the streets all i hear is violence

but the authorities react with silence

one law for you, for me it's another

things gotta change, oh my sisters and brothers



?r? 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh



don't use the colour of my skin as an issue

hey politician, your lies are gonna get you

chickens comin' home to roost in the white house

blood on the streets if you don't shut your big mouth



?r? 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh



power to the people sang johnny lennon

20 years later we're back at the beginnin'

sick of waitin' round for divine intervention

take to the streets if you're lookin' for redemption



?r? 'se do bheatha 'bhaile

anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh
