Cry Freedom

Album: Afterglow (2012)
  • Freak flag,I fly
    Now can you hear me calling?
    Don't drag and justify
    Or soon you will be fallin'
    Last kiss, we hail
    You're ready for transition
    Sweet bliss, derail
    In the red mist, we shall sail

    Holy father, believe it's over
    Cry freedom!
    Dozen dawn, the last crusade
    Cry freedom!
    Many miles, many tears for soldiers
    We're the last brigade
    In the motorcade

    Too deep, so wide
    Too late to get some shelter
    I leap, you glide
    We ride the helter skelter
    Moonbeam, starbright
    A storm on the horizon
    Bad dream, daylight
    Like a diver in the dead of night

    Holy father, believe it's over
    Cry freedom!
    Dozen dawn, the last crusade
    Cry freedom!
    Many miles, many tears for soldiers
    We're the last brigade
    In the motorcade
    Coat of armor upon your shoulder
    Cry freedom!
    Trail of blood, the last crusade
    Cry freedom!
    Many miles, many tears for soldiers
    We're the last brigade
    In the motorcade

    Freak flag,I fly
    Can you hear me calling?
    Don't drag and justify
    Or soon you will be fallin'
    Last kiss, we hail
    You're ready for transition
    Sweet bliss, derail
    In the red mist, we shall sail

    Holy father, believe it's over
    Cry freedom!
    Dozen dawn, the last crusade
    Cry freedom!
    Many miles, many tears for soldiers
    We're the last brigade
    In the motorcade
    Coat of armor upon your shoulder
    Cry freedom!
    Trail of blood, the last crusade
    Cry freedom!
    Many miles, many tears for soldiers
    We're the last brigade
    In the motorcade

    Cry freedom!
    Cry freedom!
    Cry freedom!
