Letter to the Free

Southern leaves, southern trees we hung from

Barren souls, heroic songs unsung

Forgive them father they know this knot is undone

Tied with the rope that my grandmother died

Pride of the pilgrims affect lives of millions

Since slave days separating, fathers from children

Institution ain't just a building

But a method, of having black and brown bodies fill them

We ain't seen as human beings with feelings

Will the U.S. Ever be us? Lord willing!

For now we know, the new Jim Crow

They stop, search and arrest our souls

Police and policies patrol philosophies of control

A cruel hand taking hold

We let go to free them so we can free us

America's moment to come to Jesus



Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)



The caged birds sings for freedom to bring

Black bodies being lost in the american dream

Blood of black being, a pastoral scene

Slavery's still alive, check amendment 13

Not whips and chains, all subliminal

Instead of 'nigga' they use the word 'criminal'

Sweet land of liberty, incarcerated country

Shot me with your ray-gun

And now you want to trump me

Prison is a business, America's the company

Investing in injustice, fear and long suffering

We staring in the face of hate again

The same hate they say will make america great again

No consolation prize for the dehumanized

For america to rise it's a matter of black lives

And we gonna free them, so we can free us

America's moment to come to Jesus



Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Freedom (freedom)

Freedom come (freedom come)

Hold on (hold on)

Won't be long (won't be long)

Oh, freedom, won't be long
