Freedom Time Songtext

Freedom Time Songtext

Everybody knows that they′re guilty
Everybody knows that they've lied
Everybody knows that they′re guilty
Resting on their conscience eating their inside
It's freedom, said it's freedom time now
It′s freedom, said it′s freedom time now
Time to get free, oh give us yourselves up now
It's freedom, said it′s freedom time

Yo, there's a war in the mind, over territory
For the dominion
Who will dominate the opinion
Skisms and isms, keepin′ us in forms of religion
Conformin' our vision
To the world churches decision

Trapped in a section
Submitted to committee election
Moral infection
Epidemic lies and deception
Of the highest possible order

Destortin′ our tape recorders
From hearin' like under water
Beyond the borders
Fond of sin and disorder
Bound by the strategy
It's systematic depravity

Heavy as gravity
Head first in the cavity
Without a bottom
A faith, worse than Saddam
Once got him
Drunk of the spirits

Truth comes, we can′t hear it
When you′ve been, programmed to fear it
I had a vision
I was fallin' in indecision
Apollin′, callin' religion
Some program on television

How can dominant wisdom
Be recognized in the system
Of Anti-Christ, the majority rules
Intelligent fools
PhD′s in illusion
Masters of mass confusion

Bacholors in past illusion
Now who you choosin'
The head or the tail
The bloodshed the male
More confidence in the tale
Conferences at Yale

Discussin′ doctrines of Baal
Causin' people to fail
Keepin' the third in jail
His word is nailed
Everything to the tree
Severing all of me from all that I used to be

Formless and void
Totally paranoid
Enjoy darkness as the Lord
Keepin′ me from the sword
Block for mercy
Bitter than purgatory

Hungry and thirsty
For good meat we would eat
And still, dined at the table of deceit
How incomplete
From confrontation to retreat
We prolong the true enemy′s defeat

Death to the ascendancy
Causin' desperation to get the best of me
Punishment ′til there was nothing left of me
Realizin' the unescapable death of me
No options in the valley of decision
The only doctrine, supernatural circumcision

Inwardly, only water can purge the heart
From words that fiery darts
Thrown by the workers of the arts
Iniquity, shapen in
There′re no escapin' when
You′re whole philosophy is paper thin

In vanity
The wide road is insanity
Could it be all of humanity
Picture that
Scripture that
The origin of a man's heart is black
How can we show up for

An invisible war
Preoccupied with a shadow, makin' love with a whore
Achin′ in sores
Babylon, the great mystery
Mother of human history
System of social sorcery

Our present condition
Needs serious recognition
Where there′s no repentance there can be no remission
And that sentence, more serious than Vietnam
The atom bomb is Saddam and Minister Farakkhan
What's goin′ on, what's the priority to you

What authority do we do
When the majority hasn′t a clue
We majored in curses
Search the chapters, check the verses
Recapture the land
Remove the mark from off of our hands

So we can stand
In agreement with his command
Everything else is damned
Let them what is understand
Everything else is damned, let them with ears understand

It's freedom, said it′s freedom time now
It's freedom, said it's freedom time now
It′s freedom, I′ma be who I am
It's freedom time, said it′s freedom time
Everybody knows that they've lied
Everybody knows that they′ve perpetrated inside
Everybody knows that they're guilty, yes
Resting on their conscience eating their insides
Get free, be who you′re supposed to be
Freedom, said it's freedom time now
Freedom, said it's freedom time
Freedom, freedom time now
