lyrics

This song is for Mandela
This song is for the brave
This song is for the Tubman
This song is for the slave

Verse:

Marley said
tell the children the truth
Angie said
what is freedom with no food
Medgar said
freedom ain’t never been free
Garvey said
free the mind, free the body

PreChorus:

It seems to me
This dream is an illusion
Confusion
It seems to me
It’s time for a revolution
Solution

Chorus:

This song is for Mandela (Nkrumah)
This song is for the brave
This song is for the Tubman
This song is for slave

This song is for the future
This song is for the youth
This song is for the nation
This song is for truth

Verse:

Audre said
silence will not protect you
Amiri said
Fightin for justice sustains you
Ida said
die fighting not a trapped rat
Malcolm said
Self defense is intelligence


Prechorus
Chorus

Bridge:

Freedom is coming
Freedom is coming
Are ya ready are ya ready?

Chorus
