The Prisoner

Original and similar lyrics
A misfit who is old before his time Poverty has turned him to crime Boredom gives him too much time to think He pours another drink. A burning, bitter taste of irony A prisoner in the land of the free. He wonders why his landscape looks so strange Burger bars are home on the range An empty bottle falling from his hand He doesn't understand. A burning, bitter taste of irony A prisoner in the land of the free. A cork unlocks the door to other lands Of battles won and destinies in hand A half-remembered state of liquid dreams Where things aren't what they seem. A burning, bitter taste of irony A prisoner in the land of the free. A naked savage dressed in shirt and jeans A burning, bitter taste of irony A prisoner in the land of the free. A burning, bitter taste of irony A prisoner in the land of the free.

Cisco Clifton's Filling Station

JOHNNY CASH "From Sea To Shining Sea"
It's not always the land that's the hardest and bitterest It's the man who has the hard bitter attitude Toward his fellow man or toward the land Such is the case that you will find in this following song About a man's attitude toward his fellow man and toward this land I walked in the big yard to feel the warm sunshine A ninety-nine year man stepped over to me He offered a smoke and he said as I rolled it Tomorrow I'm going to break out and go free They watch us by sunlight they watch us by spotlight But I know a way for a man to go free Down under my cell I'm diggin' a tunnel The walls of a prison will never hold me I told him that I'd have no part of his scheming My time would be over one year from today His eyes blazed with fire and he looked right through me Bitter but broken again he did say They watch us by sunlight... Next morning at breakfast the old man was missing Then we all heard the rifles high up on the wall He'd gone through the tunnel just like he had promised And they said he was crying when they saw him fall They watch us by sunlight...

Flying With The Eagles

ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS "The Chipmunk Adventure"
Watch us as the earth becomes smaller Smell as the breezes wind Gently by... isn't it grand? We are miles from sea And years from land... Look at the space that surrounds us Feel as we glide through A pure white cloud Floating so free. What is up ahead... We'll see [Chorus] We're flying with the eagles now We've just begun our sail We've got our mission all mapped out It will be a wondrous tale We'll land on every foreign shore Though we've not long to stay... We're headed toward The rainbow's end Where the sun is shining... Flying with the eagles now And we must be on our way... Up here we're free from all troubles Up here it seems that life's all so clear As we're in flight and we glide Into the dark still night... Look now the stars are appearing So close we almost can touch Their soft glistening eyes They are angels in disguise [Repeat Chorus]

The Clansman

IRON MAIDEN "Virtual XI"
(Steve Harris) Wake alone in the hills With the wind in your face It feels good to be proud And be free and a race That is part of a clan And to live on highlands And the air that you breathe So pure and so clean When alone on the hills With the wind in your hair With a longing to feel Just to be free It is right to believe In the need to be free It's a time when you die And without asking why Can't you see what they do They are grinding us down They are taking our land That belongs to the clans Not alone with a dream Just a want to be free With a need to belong I am a clansman...Freedom It's a time wrough with fear It's a land wrough with change Ancestors could hear What is happening now They would turn in their graves They would all be ashamed That the land of the free Has been written in chains And I know what I want When is timing is right Then I'll take what is mine I am the clansman And I swear to defend And we'll fight to the end And I swear that I'll never Be taken alive And I know that we'll stand And we'll fight for our land And I swear that my bairns Will be born free And I know what I want When is timing is right Then I'll take what is mine I am the clansman... Freedom No, no we can't let them take anymore No we can't let them take anymore We've the land of the free Freedom It's a time wrough with fear It's a land wrough with change Ancestors could hear What is happening now They would turn in their graves They would all be ashamed That the land of the free Has been written in chains And I know what I want When is timing is right Then I'll take what is mine I am the clansman... Freedom

The Star Spangled Banner

ALABAMA "Songs Of Inspiration II"
Oh, say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thru the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming? And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream: Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave! Flag draped from the roof of the Pentagon And where is that band who so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion A home and a country should leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave: And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave. O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand, Between their loved home and the war's desolation! Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation! Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: "In God is our trust" And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Irony

JONNY DIAZ "Everyday God"
Always liked grass to be green, but I just can't take the rain it seems sometimes And that's how it is with You and me, I hate the very things I need sometimes It's like a thousand pounds of irony come crashing down on top of me the day I learned what it means to be free A heart that is enslaved to You, two feet that remain chained to You and follow You wherever You may lead Oh, and then You'll see a heart that's free Well it might just be stupidity, but I know my pride can swallow me sometimes And I know You know much more than me, but I forget that fact so easily sometimes Oh, but now I see Your plans for me Oh, and now I know the grand scheme Just 'cause I want it doesn't mean I need it 'cause I know You've got the best for me I may not know what, I may not see it, but help me see You through the irony Lord, give to me, oh, a heart that's free Chain me now to You Lord, give to me, oh, a heart that's free Enslaved to Your truth
