Songs of Freedom

A place to share music made in the tradition of liberty! Just throwing stuff out there to kick it off. Please share your emancipatory tunes. Liberation through music, all day, all night.

I love this idea. Here’s one:

Probably one of the best bridges in music history. I would say listen for it, but it’s impossible to not hear it. And lyrics are prophetic.

Lyrics:

Oh Lord, I’m on a permanent holiday
I’m going outside to play
I ain’t gonna slave away
Not for no corporate Babylon
I’m never gonna be a pawn in their manipulation games

Oh Lord I’m taking the reins
I’m breaking the chains
I’m never gonna kneel, no way
My prophet is Heaven sent
No preacher or president can lead I astray
They’ll never know
I’m taking Jah highway home

Oh I’ve got my own path to follow
Don’t know if you’ll overstand
I’ve got my own truth to swallow
And you know that if I could you know I would throw my guitar on my back, pick up the slack, and leave here tomorrow
But I know that I am a pawn of Babylon I got to face the facts, embrace the axe, and cut these chains off my sorrow

So I’m on a permanent holiday
I’m going outside to play
I ain’t gonna slave away, no, not for no corporate babylon
I’m never gonna be a pawn in their manipulation games

Ten thousand years of captivity
We must eventually
Open up our eyes and see
They’re manipulating we
With so much uncertainty
And so many mysteries
Why are so few questioning
The unnatural state of things?

It’s a nightmare
We’re living in a nightmare
Everyone’s living so scared
They’re virtually unaware
Of this fear that rules their lives
Occupies, consumes their minds
This fear of bankruptcy
Financial impotancy
It’s funny money, money, money
It’s all this digital currency, woah yeah
It’s all this monopoly money
That keeps us from ever being free

And so it seems we’ll be in this prison for life
’cause if we keep buying then they’ll keep selling the lie
So it’s up to I and I…

Ohh Lord, I won’t be manipulated, mind-controlled, and inundated
I will seek the Revelation, make my life a celebration
I will be the change I’m seeking, manifest the words I’m speaking
I refuse to be imprisoned. I will make my own decisions

I’m on a permanent holiday
I’m going outside to play
I ain’t gonna slave away
Not for no corporate babylon
I’m never gonna be a pawn in their manipulation games

Oh Lord I’m taking the reins
I’m breaking the chains
I’m never gonna kneel, no way
My prophet is Heaven sent
No preacher or president can lead I astray
They’ll never know. I’m taking Jah highway home

I’ll never go astray
I’m leaving the past
And forwarding fast
’cause freedom is here to stay

Oh Lord we got to take back the knowledge
We got to take back the power
We got to take back the knowledge
We got to take back the power
We got to take back the knowledge
To take back the power
Take back what they have stolen from our hearts
And we got to take back the esoteric knowledge
Ohh Lord for too long they’ve been keeping us apart
Ohh yes, we got to take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour

Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour
Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour
Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour
Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour
Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour
Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour
Take back the knowledge, take back the power, humanity don’t let this be our final hour

Take back the knowledge
Take back the power

The Revolutionary Lauryn Hill!

I am convinced this set alone got her career snuffed out.

Lyrics:

It’s the mystery of iniquity…
Said it’s the misery of Inequity…
Said it’s the history of Inequity…
When it all…
All falls down…
Telling you all…
It all falls down

Children…
Eat your bread
Little children…
Eat your bread
Cuz it all…
All falls down…
Telling you all…
It all falls down

Yo!
Ya’ll can’t handle the truth in a courtroom of lies
Perjures the jurors
Witness despised
Crooked lawyers
False Indictments publicized
Its entertainment…the arraignments
The subpoenas
High profile gladiators in bloodthirsty arenas
Enter the Dragon
Black-robe crooked-balance
Souls bought and sold and paroled for thirty talents
Court reporter catch the circus on the paper
File it in the system not acknowledged by the Maker
Swearing by the bible blatantly blasphemous
Publicly perpetrating that “In God We Trust”
Cross-examined by a master manipulator
The faster intimidator
Receiving the judge’s favor
Deceiving sabers doing injury to their neighbors
For status, gratis, apparatus and legal waivers
See the bailiff
Representing security
Holding the word of God soliciting perjury
The prosecution
Political prostitution
The more money you pay… the further away solution
Legal actors
Babylon’s benefactors
Masquerading as the agency for the clients
Hypocritical giants
Morally non-compliant
Orally armed to do bodily harm
Polluted, recruited and suited judicial charm
And the defense isn’t making any sense
Faking the confidence of escaping the consequence
That a defendant is depending on the system
Totally void of judgment purposely made to twist em’
Emotional victim blackmailed by the henchmen
Framed by intentions
Inventions whereby they lynch men
Enter the false witness slandering the accused
Planting the seed openly showing he’s being used
To discredit, edit, headed for the alleged
Smearing the individual fearing the unsuspected
Expert witness (the paid authority)
Made a priority to deceive the majority
Of disinterested peers
Dodging duty for years
Hating the process
Waiting to be returning to their careers
Do we expect the system made for the elect
To possibly judge correct?
Properly serve and protect?
Materially corrupt
Spiritually amuck
Oblivious to the cause
Prosperously bankrupt
Blind leading the blind
Guilty never defined
Filthy as swine
A generation purin it’s own mind
Legal extortion
Blown out of proportion
In vein deceit
The truth is obsolete
Only two positions:
Victimizer or Victim
Both end up in destruction trusting this crooked system
Mafia with diplomas keeping us in a coma trying to own a piece
Of the “American Corona”
The Revolving Door
Insanity every floor
Skyscraping, paper chasing
What are we working for?
Empty traditions
Reaching social positions
Teaching ambition to support the family superstition?
When the Son of Perdition is Commander in Chief
The standard is Thief
Brethren can we candidly speak?
Woe to the men
Trusted in the chariots dem’
Leaning on horses
They run their intellectual sources
Counterfeit wisdom creating the illusion of freedom
Confusion consumes them
Every word they speak it turns them outwardly white
Internally they absent of light
Trapped in the night and bonded to the Cain of the night
Under the curse
Evil men waxing more worse
Faxing the first
Angelic being cast to the earth
It’s time for rebirth
Burnin up the branch and the root
The empty pursuits of every tree bearing the wrong fruit
Turn and be healed
Let him who stole, no longer steal
Oh it’s real
Surrender for Jehovah is real
How long will you sleep
Troubled by the thoughts that YOU keep
The idols YOU heap
Causing the destruction you reap
Judgment has come
Find it and return to the One
Abandon the flesh
Self-interest: Broadway to death
Pride and the Greed
Hide and subdividing the seed
The knowledge of Good and Evil is what caused us to lie
Caused us to die
Let your emotions be crucified
Renounce all your thoughts
Repent and let your mind be re-taught
You’ll find what you sought…was based on the deception you bought
A perception of naught
Where the majority remains caught

Loving a lie
Not realizing in Adam, all die

Loving a lie
Not realizing in Adam, all die

Loving a lie
Not realizing in Adam, all die

Loving a lie
Not realizing in Adam, all die

It’s the mystery of iniquity
Said it’s the history of Inequity
Said it’s the misery of Inequity
When it all…
All falls down
I’m telling you all…
It all falls down
