GRAND FUNK RAILROAD lyrics - Phoenix

Freedom Is For Children

Original and similar lyrics
I wrote the words of freedom, I've even sung the song. But freedom is for children, 'Cause they don't understand what's wrong. The children are so very lucky, 'Cause they're not old enough to know. Not old enough to realize, But they'll find out as they grow. The children are so very lucky, But, on the other hand, who's gonna' save the land? The children are so very lucky, But man's invention is gonna' be the prevention of their life. This song is nearly over, And so's the world and the day. There's something missin', But who will listen enough to do what it will take? Freedom is for children. Why can't it be for me? Freedom is for children. Why can't it be for me? Freedom is for children. Why can't it be for me? Freedom is for children. Why can't it be for me? Freedom is for children. Why can't it be for me?

Freedom

JEFFERSON AIRPLANE "Jefferson Airplane"
(by G. Slick) Oh I know they say someday time will show me How to be so cool someday but what about right now Please someone tell me what do I do while I'm waiting Waiting to be so cool--someday I know I'm not alone you know just how I feel We both know the rules but who really knows How to play this game? No one will always win good losers hide the pain They say everything's fine No one will hear them complain But behind those smiles, so much purple rain It's a wonder anybody ever comes out sane but they do And freedom it's all up to you When you're by yourself you get that silent noise Inside your mind all the party boys trying to fill up All the empty holes don't let one be her soul Freedom now you're on your own Freedom or does it really mean you're just all alone Freedom either way it's gonna take you home It just takes you by the hand and says Now it's time to grow So my friend you're gonna be alright Seems like it's all uphill But then that's the only way to get high Someday your soul is gonna fly But don't look back 'cause that's a waste of time And right now's the time for you to look inside And you'll see love--love has never gone away Freedom I've been standing still so long Freedom I almost forgot you had a song Freedom shine your light and let us begin Just take me in our arms I wanna be free again

Makeshift Aircraft

JASON REEVES "Makeshift Aircraft"
Gravity is just another downward force Pulling everything but me today I can see the people smile Deep inside they really Know they're feeling great, mmm Flood is coming Put the children all into the boat And float them far away, mhmm They won't miss their mommies And they never really knew Their daddies anyways Yeah Cuz this mean world Ate itself alive And spits it's bones The water Causing the rising of the tide The plane is falling So I'm cold and wet And everyone is drowning Down bellow and I can Heard people scream for their lives The world is underwater But the children are fine And I think they're gonna start it again And do it right It's nothing but the sound of laughing Nothing but the sound of gentle breeze Mmm The boats are scattered all through the horizon And I only thing I see is peace today I'm sitting on a lazy boric rider That sad when old blind boys play I'm just flying in my makeshift aircraft Watching all the maddens fade away Yeah yeah Cuz this mean world Ate itself alive And spits it's bones To the water Causing the rising of the tide The plane is falling The scientists Trying to make guilds But know that they'll lie But it was time for me to fly So I'm cold and wet And everyone is drowning Down bellow and I can Heard people scream for their lives The world is underwater But the children are fine And I think they're gonna start it again Do it right Time would run out of clocks And the doors will be unlocked And the air will echo with this sound The world will get along And there will be no more problems And I'll put my feet back on dry ground Gravity is just another downward force Allowing no one but me to fly So I'm cold and wet And everyone is drowning Down bellow and I can Heard people scream for their lives The world is underwater But the children are fine And I think they're gonna start it again I think they're gonna start it again And do it right

Passin Time

INDIGO GIRLS
Peace Song is an Emily Saliers composition, probably written in 1985, as it appears on Blue Food. If you're intersted in a more definite terminus post quem, it makes reference to the TV movie The Day After. So, all you gotta do is find out when THAT was, and you've got a nice TPQ. Anybody who knows, let me in on it... Peace Song. Now, everybody's looking for a little peace of mind We're a generation running out of time There's a bomb, there's a man, there's a gun in his hand, yeah Well, nobody smiles at strangers, we're scared from birth Afraid the man's gonna take us for all that we're worth Strip us of our pride - make a strike from inside (Come on and tell me) How long will we be victims of fear With a man and a gun and the day after fear Jesus, smile down upon your children Smile down upon your family Now, even lovers have trouble at hand What's your preference - where do you stand? You get uptight about it, gonna fight about it Gonna fight about love - that makes no sense to me Wanting independence, separate but equal Some are here, and others there One more for the sequel to the heartache How much more can we take? (Won't you tell me) How long will we be victims of fear With a man and a gun and the day after fear Jesus, smile down upon your children Smile down upon your family...

Revolution

Pretenders "Isle Of View"
As we watch the children play, Remember, it was me and you, So far away, The things we got out to do. The fond fear of danger, That's what sets us apart, Couldn't wait for the real world To test the strength of the lion's heart. Cats like me and you, Have got laws, That they adhere to. Laws outside the laws, As laid down By those we don't subscribe to. The world is getting stranger. But we'll never lose heart. We can't just wait for the old guard to die, Before we can make a new start. Bring on the revolution, Keep the pressure on. I want to die for something. Bring on the revolution, I want to die for something, want to die for something. Bring on the revolution, I want to die for something. (nothing) Bring on the revolution, Don't wanna die for nothing. (something, something) For every freedom fighter, I want to hold on tighter. To the hope and will you gave You were the brave, you were the brave. And one day, when I hear your children sing, Freedom will ring, Freedom. When we watch the children play, Remember how the priviliged classes grew. And from this day, we set out To undo what won't undo. Looking for the grand in the minute. Every breath justifies Every step that we take to remove what the powers that be can't prove And the children will understand why. Bring on the revolution, Keep the pressure on, I want to die for something. Bring on the revolution, I want to die for something. Bring on the revolution, Don't want to die for nothing. Bring on the revolution, I want to die for something.

Rain

Jackopierce "Jackopierce"
Silent rows of strengh thy men stood clear The fog clung to the ground To the sounds it could hear The footstep, the hoof beat, the steel under sky The whistle, the birdcall, the severe look in the eyes He's nineteen years old, he's got a gun at his side The more he looks around he knows the president lied Seduced him, reduced him appealed to the man With vivid colored fliers and bright arm bands They will meet them in the trenches But they won't meet eye to eye Looking down the barrels the opposition will cry There's hatred in the morning, blood flows in the day They will all return home and The skies will give way for Rain, it flows down Cleansing, freedom, children Rain There's disdain, propane, powder and shot Racism runs free but love is left to rot There's a mad house, a play house, a place for the old Got a place for the hungry and a place for the cold I'm diving, I'm sinking down into the sea It will rise up to heaven and come back down on me as Yes, Rain, it flows down Cleansing, Freedom, Children Rain She walks into the garage, pulls the door to the ground Eases behind the wheel and she puts the seat down Ignition, submissions, salut it's time to send Her poor grieving parents will never see her again It's late night, there's pistols, there's daggers and drugs I'll kill nine, I'll take mine, no police, no mugs It's Greenwich, it's Dallas, it's Beverly Hills Blood lives taken for sweet, short thrills Rain, it flows down Cleansing, freedom, children Rain There's disdain, propane, powder and shot Racism runs free but love is left to rot There's a mad house, a play house, a place for the old Got a place for the hungry and a place for the cold I'm diving, I'm sinking down into the sea It will rise up to heaven and come back down on me as Rain, it flows down Cleansing, freedom, children Rain Homelife Her show Skylight Rain
