The Revolution

Wake up boys, there’s a light at the window,
I can hear someone knocking on the door,
There are voices in the street,
And the sound of running feet,
And they whisper the word-
“Revolution!”
There are men coming down from the valleys,
There are tall ships lying off the coast,
And they carry the light,
In the dark of the night,
Like a whisper in the wind-
“Revolution!”
Bring my gun and a handful of silver,
By the sea we will gather for the fight,
It’s been so many years, so many tears,
We have lost once before,
Now we’ll settle the score,
When our cannons will roar-
“Revolution!”

Light a Fire

Watch, and wait, get ready for the sign,
There are many here among us now,
Who have not seen the light,
We must send the word to all the people in the land,
Go to every hill and mountain,
For the time is now at hand,
To light a fire!
Light a fire,
Light a fire!
Let us march the road up the rocky hill tonight,
Under cover of the darkness,
We will slip behind the lines,
And we will take the men who have stolen our land,
For the years of domination,
Hit them right between the eyes,
And light a fire!
Light a fire,
Light a fire,
They will see through the world!

Liberty

Roll away the dawn
Roll away the dawn, and let me see
The land of the free
Has anything changed at all
Sweet liberty
Sweet liberty is in our hands
It’s part of the plan
Or is it a state of mind?
Horses and men
Horses and men are on the field
They didn’t yield
Many have fallen here
Never forget,
Never forget what they have done
The time will come
When it will change again
Never forget!
