How long can we pretend for?
We're the land of the free
Ask yourself some simple questions
Things aren't what they seem

(Chorus X2)
We all need someone to hold
We all need to have a home
We all need to speak our hearts
We all need a little love

Each of us has the power
To change the course we're on
A fire burns within us
Brighter than the sun

"We've got some difficult days ahead.
But it really doesn't matter with me now.
Because I've been to the mountaintop, and I don't mind.
Like anybody, I would like to live a long life.
Longevity has its place.
But I am not concerned about that now.
I just want to do God's Will.
He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.
I've looked over, and I've seen the Promised Land.
I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight
That we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land!"

(Chorus X2)

I declare my insurrection
To the home of the brave
I will not surrender
Until our world is free

(Chorus X2)

"They may torture my body, break my bones, even kill me.
Then they will have my dead body... not my obediance"
