46664 lyrics

It's a long walk, long walk to freedom
It's a long walk, long walk to freedom

Freedom rises from the killing floor
No lock of iron or rivet can restrain the door
And no kind of army can hope to win a war
It's like trying to stop the rain or still the lion's roar

Long walk, long walk to freedom
It's a long walk, long walk to freedom

It's like trying to stop the whirlwind scattering seeds and spores
Like trying to stop the tin cans rapping out jailhouse semaphore
They know when your hands are manacled its your spirit that gets raw
It's not the small little patch of sky you see, as if your visions soar

Long walk, long walk to freedom
It's a long walk, long walk to freedom

When freedom arise from the killing floor
No lock of iron can restrain the door
Can't stop the rain nor lions that roar
No time for bad a-winters, scatter seeds and spore
Small part of sky, world visions of poor
Here six waves come, seventh break shore
Where the rock is heavy, come the purest ore
Like a looking at the future, what is in store

What's in store is what we got
What's in store is what we got

If the cameras of kind won't skip the human core
In townships of humanity there would be no poor
From where the rock is heavy comes the purest ore
At first six waves might break in the bay, the seventh breaks on the shore

It's a long road to freedom
It's a long road to freedom
It's a long road to freedom
It's a long road to freedom
