I read it in the Bible
I told you not to waste my time
Why should I be liable
For every situation, and every crime?
I know it's a long way home
When you haven't got a ride
I know it's a long way home
And you know we've been fighting for the longest time
Ain't no freedom like your own
Ain't no freedom like to say this is mine
Ain't no freedom like your own
And you know we've been fighting for the longest time
I told it to some people
But they said the fault was mine
I know it's never easy
I know it's never easy when you walk in line
I know it's a long way home
When you haven't got a ride
I know it's a long way home
And you know we've been fighting for the longest time
Ain't no freedom like your own
Ain't no freedom like to say this is mine
Ain't no freedom like your own
And you know we've been fighting for the longest time
Why do we live this way
Wasting our lives?
Why are the things that we say
Seen as a crime?
I have to live my way
This is my life
I get on my knees and pray
Most of the time
Ain't no freedom like your own
Ain't no freedom like to say this is mine
Ain't no freedom like your own
And you know we've been fighting for the longest time
