Freedom ~ Naadir Vorajee

Look at that Bird, watch it fly:
Move the earth beneath it as time goes by.
Look at FREEDOM, spread it's wings
Touch your heaven as it sings...

Fly away birdy, take what was yours...
Break those chains as you break our laws!

Glide through the air: Beauty and pride,
Fly up higher from the rock you denied.
SHOW them your Plumage: make them wonder...
why the hell, they did blunder
to put a bullet in your heart
and take away your special part..

SHOW them,
peacemaker... Fly away!
Bring back heaven upon this day!

  1. Are you using the tune of 'two little birdies' here, or is that my imagination?
    Definitely reminds me of the protest but there's this tension in the words that really resonate...
