Time to be Free

Time to be Free

(Music & lyrics by Stan Silver)

Verse:

I don’t need your charity – As pitiful as I may seem

And I don’t need your handouts – If you think this is what I mean

I won’t cry my heart out – About some inconsequentialities

But I’m telling you what’s killing me – Is being a ghost of a long lost history

Verse:

They spoke the word of Jesus – While the plains were soaked in blood

And death came in a blanket – To leave us with a flood

Of a sick and dying people – To be buried in oblivion

They got us down on our wounded knees

To them the end justifies the means

Chorus:

There comes a time to be free

In the mountains, the valleys, the plains, across the sea

There comes a time to be free

When you hear the eagle cry

Will you think about me

Verse:

Outnumbered by the millions – Overrun by the matter of course

Exploiting our land of gold – Their greed without remorse

Locked up in the wasteland – Surrendering unconditionally

Leaving us without the hope – Of winning back our fading identity

Chorus:

There comes a time to be free

In the mountains, the valleys, the plains, across the sea

There comes a time to be free

When you hear the eagle cry

Will you think about me

When you see the eagles fly

Will you think about me

When you see the eagle in the sky

It’s time to be free

Time to be free
