Life Uncommon

Original and similar lyrics
Don't worry mother, it'll be alright And don't worry sister, say your prayers and sleep right It'll be fine lover of mine It'll be just fine Lend your voices only to sounds of freedom No longer lend you strength to that which you wish to be free from Fill your lives with love and bravery And you shall lead a live uncommon I've heard you anguish I've heard you hearts cry out We are tired, we are weary, but we aren't worn out set down you chains, until only faith remains Set down you chains And lend your voices only to sounds of freedom No longer lent your strength to that which you wish to be free from Fill you lives with love and bravery And we shall lead a life uncommon There are plenty of people who pray for peace But if praying were enough it would have come to be Let your words enslave no one and the heavens will hush themselves To hear out voices ring out clear with sounds of freedom sounds of freedom Come on you unbelievers, move out of the way there is a new army coming and we are armed with faith To live, we must give To live And lend out voices only to sounds of freedom No longer lend out strength to that which we with to be free from Fill your lives with love and bravery And we shall lead... Lend out voices only to sounds of freedom No longer lent out strength to that which we with to be free from Fill you lives with love and bravery And we shall lead a life uncommon

Freedom

SYLEENA JOHNSON "Chapter 4: Labor Pains"
It makes no difference who you are or what color you happened to be As long as you’re live and breathing, this is got to be one of journey Hey, as a young girl I had my heart set on many big dreams Then I grew up and found the world ain’t nothing what it seems Hey, then the tears came down the face of my reality yeah When I realized how mean and rude this world can be And if I ruled the world (I would give love to all the woman and children) I would break free every mind (and I would supply all the dollars to feed them) There would be peace and love on Earth (There’d be no war, peace study no more) Soldiers be free to make the choice (to live or die so I’d free them the voice) All I want is freedom (from all the stress, the test, the mess, the lies of your enemies) All I want is freedom (freedom to fight for everything that you believe) Freedom (Freedom to say what you think, free from the prejudice that changes all) All I want is freedom (you have to have it, where would you be without your freedom) And no matter, if you’re from the hood or from the hills of Beverly Soil of America, from the far place overseas Black, yellow or white, straight, gay or somewhere in between We all want a one nation under god that’s free And if I ruled the world (I would give love to all the woman and children) I would break free every mind (and I would supply all the dollars to feed them) There would be peace and love on Earth (There’d be no war, peace study no more) Soldiers be free to make the choice (to live or die so I’d free them the voice) All we need our freedom (from all the stress, the test, the mess, the lies of your enemies) All we need our freedom (freedom to fight for everything that you believe) All we want Freedom (Freedom to say what you think, free from the prejudice that changes all) All I want is freedom (you have to have it, where would you be without your freedom) Every man, woman and child deserves the right to be free One nation under god living just for all (We want our freedom) As it makes no difference who you are (We want our freedom) Or what color you happened to be (We want our freedom) As long as you’re live and breathing (Sing daddy) This is got to be one of journey All I want is my freedom (from all the stress, the test, the mess, the lies of your enemies) All I want is freedom (freedom to fight for everything that you believe) Freedom (Freedom to say what you think, free from the prejudice that changes all) All I want is freedom (you have to have it, where would you be without your freedom)

It's All Too Much

JOE JACKSON "Laughter & Lust"
It's All Too Much Some days I can't get started Wondering which shoe to put on first Or should I brush my teeth Before or after I put on my shirt So many big decisions Boiled or scrambled, fried or even raw I'm so damn open-minded Used to think I'm lucky but I'm cursed I hate this supermarket But I have to say it makes me think A hundred mineral waters It's fun to guess which ones are safe to drink Two hundred brands of cookies 87 kinds of chocolate chip They say that choice is freedom I'm so free it drives me to the brink And you know why - it's all too much It's all too much for me to bear What kind of shampoo suits my hair It's all too much (1) for me to do (1) Especially without you Won't you please come home Honey please come home I read the morning paper But it all changes by the evening news The world got so much smaller I don't know which piece of it to choose I'd like to fight apartheid Wish that I could fight the guy upstairs I'd solve a dozen cases If only there weren't so many clues What shall we do this evening Send out for some sushi and champagne Stay in and watch TV 50 channels can't all be the same Maybe go to a movie 50 films on 50 tiny screens They say that choice is freedom I'm so free it's driving me insane And you know why - it's all too much It's all too much for me to stand So much supply and no demand There's just too much (2) to struggle throu (2) Especially without you Won't you please come home Honey please come home I'd like to get to know All the many people I could be If I just had the time I'm sure I could find out which one is me Maybe I need religion Or meditation 'til I disappear They say that choice is freedom I'm so free I'm stuck in therapy And you know why - it's all too much It's all too much for me to take Try to be real, feel like a fake It's all too much to follow thru Especially without you Please come home Honey please come home Won't you please come home

Live Nude Cabaret

JACKSON BROWNE "Time The Conqueror"
I went to the Live Nude Cabaret To see what I could see And I saw the ladies dancing And I guess that they saw me Neither did I vanquish, or surrender to desire But what I saw revealed to me Was just more fuel on the fire I've heard form follows function And I think that must be true Especially when you think of What the female form will do Its lines and shapes are everywhere As if they follow me Repeating my own longing in everything I see Star of happiness, star of love Lead us to the shore That only women hold the promise of Men would give them money And men would give them gold And shower them with promises Of luxury untold And make their vessels of creation The temples of our souls Ohhhhh let my people go Sea of loneliness, sea of love Carry me upon your endless depths And bear my heart above For I would give her money And I would give her jewels And lead her to the palace my imagination rules And fashion from her nakedness The innocence that's gone Gone as the time she's given the suffering of fools

Many Moons

JANELLE MONÁE "Metropolis Suite I Of IV: The Chase"
[Verse 1:] We're dancing free but we're stuck here underground And everybody trying to figure they way out Hey Hey Hey, all we ever wanted to say Was chased erased and then thrown away And day to day we live in a daze [Refrain:] We march all around til' the sun goes down night children Broken dreams, no sunshine, endless crimes, we long for freedom (for freedom) You're free but in your mind, your freedom's in a bind [Chorus:] Oh make it rain, ain't a thang and the sky to fall (The silver bullet's in your hand and the war's heating up) And when the truth goes BANG the shouts splatter out (Revolutionize your lives and find a way out) And when you're growing down instead of growing up (You gotta ooo ah ah like a panther) Tell me are you bold enough to reach for love? (Na na na...) [Verse 2:] So strong for so long All I wanna do is sing my simple song Square or round, rich or poor At the end of day and night all we want is more I keep my feet on solid ground and use my wings when storms come around I keep my feet on solid ground for freedom You're free but in your mind, your freedom's in a bind [Chorus] [Cybernetic Chantdown:] Civil rights, civil war Hood rat, crack whore Carefree, nightclub Closet drunk, bathtub Outcast, weirdo Stepchild, freak show Black girl, bad hair Broad nose, cold stare Tap shoes, Broadway Tuxedo, holiday Creative black, Love song Stupid words, erased song Gun shots, orange house Dead man walking with a dirty mouth Spoiled milk, stale bread Welfare, bubonic plague Record deal, light bulb Keep back kid not corporate thug Breast cancer, common cold HIV, lost hope Overweight, self esteem Misfit, broken dream Fish tank, small bowl Closed mind, dark hold Cybergirl, droid control Get away now they trying to steal your soul Microphone, one stage Tomboy, outrage Street fight, bloody war Instigators, third floor Promiscuous child, broken dream STD, quarentine Heroin user, coke head Final chapter, death bed Plastic sweat, metal skin Metallic tears, mannequin Carefree, night club Closet drunk, bathtub White house, Jim Crow Dirty lies, my regards [Closing Lullaby:] And when the world just treats you wrong just come with me and I'll take you home No need to pack a bag Who put your life in the danger zone? You running dropping like a rolling stone No need to pack a bag You just can't stop your hurt from hanging on The old man dies and then a baby's born Chan, chan, chan, change your life And when the world just treats you wrong just come with me and I'll take you home Shan, shan shan shan-gri la Na na na na na na na na na na na

Tax Free

JONI MITCHELL "Dog Eat Dog"
Front rooms Back rooms Slide into tables Crowd into bathrooms Joke around Cheap talk Deep talk Talk, talk, talk around the clock Crawl home Lie down Teeth chatter Heart pounds I don't feel so good I don't feel so good Push a button to escape Preacher on the tube crying Lord! There's evil in this land Evangelist: Rock and roll music! Cast down these dope-fiends And there noisy bands! Damn their souls! Preacher preaching love like vengeance Preaching love like hate Calling for large donations Promising estates Rolling lawns and angel bands Behind the pearly gates You know, he will have his in this life But yours will have to wait He's immaculately tax free Mulitiple hundreds of thousands of ... Tax free Hundreds and millions of dollars Tax free A hundred billion dollars! And who is paying the price? Who, who Your children are Pissed off Jacked up Scream into the mike Spit into the loving cup Strut like a rooster March like a man God's hired hands and the devil bands Packing the same grandstands Different clothes Pot in their pockets! Different hair Sexually active Raise a screaming guitar or a bible in the air Theatre of anguish Theatre of glory God's hired hands and the devil bands Oh come let us adore---ME! Lord, there's danger in this land You get witch-hunts and wars When church and state hold hands Fuck it! Tonight I'm going dancing With the drag queens and the punks Big beat deliver me From this sanctimonious skunk We're no flaming angels And he's not heaven sent How can he speak for the Prince of Peace When he's hawk-right militant And he's immaculately tax free Our nation has lost its guts! Save me Our nation has lost its strength Tax free Our nation has whimpered and cried Save me And petted the Castros Tax free The Khomeinis' and the Kaddafis' Save me For so long Tax free That we don't know how to act like a man Save me I think that we should turn the United States Marines loose on that little island south of Florida and stop that problem! I am preachin' love, I am!
