"When You're A Free Man" as written by and Mike Pinder....
Time quickly passes by
If only we could talk again
Someday, I know I'll see you smiling
When you're a free man again

High on a mountain side
We laughed and talked of things to come
Someway, I know I'll see you shining
When we're all free men again

You left your country for peace of mind
And something tells me you're doin' alright
How are the children and Rosemarie?
I long to see you and be in your company

Someday, I hope I'll see you smiling
When you're a free man again

I often wonder, why
Our world has gone so far astray?
Someway, I know I'll see you shining
When we're all free men again

You gave love freely to those with tears
Your eyes were sad then you saw the need
You know that love lasts for eternity
Let's be God's children and live in perfect peace
Peace, perfect peace, perfect peace, peace

Someway I know I'll see you shining
When you're a free man
When we're all free men again, yeah
When you're a free man

    General CommentFolks, this wonderful song by Mike Pinder is his SECOND homage to Timothy Leary. That's right! Obviously everyone knows about "Timothy Leary's Dead." This song has more subtle references. It was written after Tim was "liberated" by the Weather Underground following his 1970 incarceration in a prison; he and his wife Rosemary then lived in exile, first in Algeria and then in Switzerland. Ah, those were the days!
