Freedom Song

Oh, blade of grass, can I ask you
Where is the road to peace? Tell me, please.
Oh singing bird, what are the words
To the freedom songs you sing, oh how they ring
You must know a song we have not sung
The freedom bells you ring we have not rung

Oh, will you tell me now
Give us wings to fly and a voice to cry out "Freedom!"
Beyond the borderlines in our minds give eyes to see the mystery
The threads that bind all livingkind across the sea or next to me
Plant your feet on the ground the world is turning 'round

Oh blowing wind, where do we begin?

Have you any answers now? Can you tell us how?

River do you know when will justice flow

and will we ever see all people free?
"Listen," said the bird, "And I'll reply"
The grass began to nod, the wind to cry

Oh, I'll tell you now
You have wings to fly and a voice to cry out "Freedom!"
Beyond the borderlines in your minds you've eyes to see the mystery
The threads that bind all livingkind across the sea or next to me
Plant your feet on the ground the world is turning 'round

We have wings to fly and a voice to cry out "Freedom!"
Beyond the borderlines in our minds we've eyes to see the mystery
The threads that bind all livingkind across the sea or next to me
Plant your feet on the ground the world is turning 'round
