Protest Song - We Will be Free

An anthem for direct democracy and freedom from political/economic slavery.




How you wield the power of centuries
Of the privilege borne of wealth and ease
Of the booty carried on backs of slaves
Of the soldiers fist and policeman's gaze
But rising through the crowd so boldly
Are voices you cannot ignore

(Chorus)
Hear our song
We will be free
We will stop for nothing less
Than real democracy
Kill or jail us But you will see
You will only make us strong
We will arise
And we will be free

Now your easy money - your greed and fear
Drove the oil and wheat into the stratosphere
But the least among us still have to pay
There's a breaking point and it came today

But rising through the crowd so boldly
Are voices you cannot ignore

(Chorus)
