(barry mann, cynthia weil, brenda russell)

You better listen my brother
'cause if you do you can hear
There are voices still callin' from across the years
And they're cryin' across the ocean
And they're cryin' across the land
And they will until we all come to understand

(chorus)
That none of us are free
None of us are free
None of us are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free

Well there are people in the darkness
And they just can't see the light
And if we don't say it's wrong then that says it's right
We got to feel for each other
Let our brothers know we're here
Got to get the message and send it out loud and clear

That none of us are free
None of us are free
None of us are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free
Well it's the single truth
We all need to see
That none of are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free


Well I swear to you salvation isn't very hard to find
None of us can find it on our own
We got to join together. spirit, heart and mind
All the are suffering, knows they're not alone

None of us are free
None of us are free

If you just look around you
You're see what I say
'cause the world's gettin' smaller each passin' day
Now it's time to make some changes
Now it's time all realized
That the truth is shinin' right before our eyes


'cause none of us are free
None of us are free
None of us are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free


Well it's the very heart of humanity
'cause none of us are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free

None of us, none of us
None of us, none of us
None of us, none of us are free

None of us, none of us
None of us, none of us
None of us, none of us are free


None of us are free
None of us are free
None of us are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free
'cause it's the very truth
We all need to see
That none of us are free if one of us is chained
None of us are free
