Fight to be Free ©

Allen Steble
Port Kennedy, Australia
2007

I wake up in the morning
Bedazzled and Bewildered
Flowers on the table and smoke in the air
I take a look around me, yet nothing seems fair
looking through the window
waiting at the door
All I see is slaves like rocks fighting every war

I wanna smell the victory
I need to taste the water
At the end of every story
We see the end of pain and slaughter
Hoping everyday for the rain to come
As long as I am living
I will keep fighting for freedom

Since I was a little boy
I've been running from my problems
Like a bright soul in a dark cave
Searching for the right gems
Now I'm stuck in a deep hole
digging for a few dimes
working for a new goal, seems like old times

I wanna smell the victory (victory)
I wanna taste the water (water)
At the end of every story (story)
We see the end of pain and slaughter (yeah yeah)
And as long as I am living
I will keep fighting for freedom (fighting for freedom)
(Fighting for freedom)
I am strong like a rock
I am tall like a tree
I will never give up
I will fight to be...Freeee

Tonight I will go to bed hungry
Anxiously awaiting
As I look into the starry night
My dreams will be so real
The bang of thunder
The flash of lightning
Yet the heavens are so quiet
And as I fade into my slumber
Peace will see no more riot

I wanna smell the victory (victory)
I wanna taste the water (water)
At the end of every story (story)
We see the end of pain and slaughter (oh yeah)
And as long as I am living
I will keep fighting for freedom (fighting for freedom)
(Fighting for freedom)
I am strong like a rock
I am tall like a tree
I will never give up
I will fight to be...Freeee
