“Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery; none but ourselves can free our mind.”
by Chris Cornell edited by O Society September 20, 2019
Old pirates, yes, they rob I;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the ‘and of the Almighty.
We forward in this generation
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
‘Cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fullfil the book.
Won’t you help to sing
This songs of freedom-
‘Cause all I ever have:
Songs of freedom.
