TRULY A SONG FOR OUR TIMEBy JimmyZ
‘Liberty’ by Jordan Page (2010) – This has been one of my favorites since first hearing it in 2010. I read the lyrics on my show in fact a long time ago.
I think the voice is good and the melody is great, but the lyrics are downright brilliant. Each time I read through as he sings them, I find more to love about it. And where he sounded a little over the top in 2010, he now sounds more aware of what has been happening. Every DAY Obama is pulling another socialist rabbit out of his hat, and it’s getting to be more than a little upsetting.
I do think people should be spending more and more time talking to God and trusting Him, instead of looking to politicians. How can we still be disappointed by Republicans? They keep doing what they have been doing, can we be surprised anymore?
Anyway, please check out the lyrics here – I think he wrote a song for our times.
Lyrics are beneath the video.
Why do we sit down when all should be standing / And why do we back down at the critical moment / Like running away from the waves of the ocean / We head for the hills with the high tide approaching / As sand slips away from the castle
When it’s time to stand upright why do we falter / Like placing our freedom on the sacrificial altar / We hold tight to our fears and defend our oppressors / As we fight for their lies and become the transgressors / As pacifists transform to violent aggressors
But I’m only a stranger here / I’m a long long way from my home / And they say I can’t change / All the things I find strange / For what can one man do alone / What can one man do alone
When is the right time to stand up for freedom / Could it be when you start to feel creating children / Who’ll inherit the pain and the debt of this nation / And be slaves to the banks that cause hyper-inflation / Who are masters of commerce, lies, and bad legislation
If you looked in the eyes of a thousand young children / Through fences of razors, their innocence stolen / As the red flag of tyranny flies in the open / Is that when you’ll finally notice
But I’m only a stranger here / I’m a long long way from my home / And they say I can’t change / All the things I find strange / For what can one man do alone / Yes what can one man do alone
I’m only a stranger looking to find better nature in my fellow man / But they keep telling me it’s a sin to be free / And that’s more than I’m willing to stand
Where will you be when the order is given / To censor your mind as free speech is forbidden / As martyrs for peace from the world will be driven / Away by the sound of a bellowing thunder / And choke on the blood of a dream going under
As arrogant men tear up our Constitution / And from every direction we cry R3VOLution! / Standing together and without permission / Soldiers for truth in the war of attrition / The love of our country as our ammunition
But I’m only a stranger here / I’m a long long way from my home / And I’m going to change / All the things I find strange / For I am not one man alone / Yes I’m only a stranger / I’m a long long way from my home / And I’m going to change / All the things I find strange / For I know that I’m not alone / Yes I know that I’m not alone, not alone
