Lyrics

FREEDOM
Freedom they cry freedom
Freedom they cry freedom

She has only lived her life as someone else’s property
Betrayed and taken as a child, sold by her own family
Her innocence it has a price, her sex is their commodity
Getting rich at her expense while she is trapped in poverty
~she’s our sister, she’s our mother,she’s a part of you and me
~he’s our father, he’s our brother, don’t pretend that you don’t see.
All of this is happening right next door to you and me
How can this be happening right next door to you and me?

Freedom they cry freedom
Can you hear them sounding out in the night
Praying that someone will free them?
Freedom can you hear them…crying freedom?
None of us are truly free until the world is free.

Once again she takes the kids and changes her identity
Fleeing swiftly in the night searching for a safe retreat
No courtroom can protect them from the rage of his insanity
Always living on the run as long as he is walking free.
~she’s our sister, she’s our mother,she’s a part of you and me
~he’s our father, he’s our brother, don’t pretend that you don’t see.
All of this is happening right next door to you and me
How can this be happening right next door to you and me?

Freedom they cry freedom
Can you hear them sounding out in the night
Praying that someone will free them?
Freedom can you hear them…crying freedom?
None of us are truly free until the world is free.

Schoolgirls kidnapped in the night
Children sold in broad daylight
Red tape, lies, and politics
Leaders spewing rhetoric
Forcing labor without pay
90 million everyday
Modern day slavery
Right next door to you and me….

Freedom they cry freedom
Can you hear them sounding out in the night
Praying that someone will free them?
Freedom can you hear them…crying freedom?
None of us are truly free until the world is free.

Freedom they cry freedom (repeat)
