  • We are proud individuals living on the city
    But the flames couldn't go much higher
    We find gods and religions to
    To paint us with salvation
    But no one
    No nobody
    Can give you the power

    To rise over love
    And over hate
    Through this iron sky
    That's fast becoming our minds
    Over fear and into freedom

    Oh, that's life
    Left dripping down the walls
    Of a dream that cannot breathe
    In this harsh reality
    Mass confusion spoon fed to the blind
    Serves now to define our cold society

    From which we'll rise over love
    Over hate
    From this iron sky
    That's fast becoming our minds
    Over fear and into freedom

    You just got to hold on!
    You just got to hold on!

    Oh oh oh oh

    (To those who can hear me, I say, do not despair
    The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed
    The bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
    The hate of men will pass, and dictators die
    And the power they took from the people will return to the people
    And so long as men die, liberty will never perish
    Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men
    Machine men with machine minds and machine hearts!
    You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men!
    You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful
    To make this life a wonderful adventure
    Let us use that power!
    Let us all unite!)

    And we'll rise over love
    And over hate
    Through this iron sky
    That's fast becoming our minds
    Over fear
    And into freedom
    Into freedom!

    From which we'll rise over love
    And over hate
    Through this iron sky
    That's fast becoming our minds
    Over fear and into freedom
    Freedom!

    Oh, from which we'll rise over love
    And over hate
    Through this iron sky
    That's fast becoming our minds
    Over fear and into freedom
    Freedom!

    Freedom!
    Rain on me!
    Rain on me! Writer/s: CHARLIE CHAPLIN, DAVID NELSON, PAOLO NUTINI
