about

A portrayal of our situation as the people in front of those who are pulling the strings (the men on the moon) that asks, "So WHAT when the enslaved break free??"

Un retrato de nuestro situación como el pueblo, frente a los que estan tirando los hilos (los hombres en la luna) y que pregunta, "Que pasara cuando los encadenados quiebran las cadenas??"

lyrics

I see so many, they're feelin' upside down
With fingers crossed, they got their noses to the ground
Prayin' for salvation, they barely see
Anything beyond a life of misery

They'll all keep denyin'
but they know they've been deceived
all the kings men have made off
with the people's hopes and dreams

They stole off to the moon
and I don't think they're comin' back
they left you here to pray
to the warden dressed in black

"How long can we hold 'em?"
No one seems to know
"We knew this was comin' around
and now it's about to blow."
It seems to many have had enough
and people, they get desperate
when times get rough

So what when the enslaved, they break free??
So WHAT when the enslaved, they break free??

We see them in our schools
some see them through steel bars
always tryin' to talk us down,
to sell this soul of ours...

They may think we're not listenin'
and it's a wicked web they're twistin'
but don't they see their thread's about to burn?

So in the forests we'll light our torches
and in the cities, they'll man their porches
while the men on the moon watch the tables start to turn
and they'll be singin'

"How long can we hold 'em?"
No one seems to know
"We knew this was comin' around
and now it's about to blow."
It seems to many have had enough
and people, they get desperate
when times get rough

So what when the enslaved, they break free??
So WHAT when the enslaved, they break free??

Let's go, let's go back home to mother my friends
Everything that is, shows you'll go back to her again
Stop trying to break the cycle we're so blessed to be in
Let us enjoy her sweet embrace once again.
