Wake Up Time For Freedom

Album: Sonic Temple (1989)
  • [Chorus]
    Wake up time for freedom, baby
    Wake up time to fly
    Wake up time for freedom, baby

    Ah ha, ah ha ha, yeah
    Ah ha, ah ha ha, well
    Ah ha, ah ha ha
    Ah ha, ah ha ha

    There's someone knocking on my door
    A tall dark figure I've never seen before
    His badge shone brightly like a star in the sky
    Drag me out to the waiting car

    [Chorus]

    A flock of vultures spinning round my head
    Left me on the roadside for dead
    Cars pass by but no one stares
    These waking dreams, they never end

    [Chorus]

    You we gotta try

    Lawman on the bank now, honey
    Hound dog on my trail
    Wake up time for freedom
    Before the night prevails

    There's someone knocking on my door
    A tall dark figure I've never seen before
    Yeah, backs on blinding, like a star in the sky
    He drag me out to the waiting car

    Sometimes, like this, they came

    Ah ha, ah ha ha, yeah
    Ah ha, ah ha ha
    Ah ha, ah ha ha, yeah
    Ah ha, ah ha ha

    [Chorus: x4]

    Wake up time for freedom, baby
