We shall be free
We shall be free
So have a little faith
And hold out
We shall be free

SOME TALKING IN THE BACKGROUND

This ain't comin' from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand

When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there's shelter over the poorest head
Then we shall be free
When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
So, have a little faith and hold out
'Cause we shall be free

When we're free to love anyone we choose
When this world's big enough for all different views
When we're all free to worship
From our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
'Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there's only one race and that's mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Together, Forever
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, pour out
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Together, Forever
We shall be free

    This song is soo awesome, and the video is amazing too. There are celebs such as Patrick Swayze and Jay Leno. The crazy thing is, this song is true.
