I'm not chasing miracles
I don't want no sympathy
I'm waiting for the world
To keep me company

Thinking 'bout the universe
Trying to keep my fears at bay
And all I'm hoping for
Is for someone else to want to say

Freedom someday
Are you ready to make the deal?
Freedom someday
Freedom to live for real

I don't want no money
But buddy, can you spare the time of day?
'Cause silence is I'm sure
The highest price we pay

I don't wish my troubles on anyone
But I can wish them well
So I'm knocking on your door
'Cause there's something I would like to say

Freedom someday
I'm ready to make the deal
Freedom someday
Freedom to live for real

Somehow life goes on
But when it's said and done it's such a bitter pill
When you think the battle's won
You hear the distant guns of all those fighting still

The battle's in our heads
One we always lose whichever side we choose
We can paint the planet red
Or black and blue instead but we are one world

I'm not chasing miracles
But I don't choose to be this way
Now all I'm hoping for
Is for someone else to hear me say

Freedom someday
Are you ready to make the deal?
Freedom someday
Freedom to live for real

Freedom someday
A life we won't have to steal
Freedom someday
Freedom to live for real

And if our time has come
And if our race is run who will pay the bill?
When you think the battle's won
You hear the distant guns of all those fighting still

But the battle's in our heads
One we always lose whichever side we choose
Paint the planet red
Or black and blue instead but we are one world

Somehow life's going on
But when it's said and done it's such a bitter pill
When you think the battle's won
You hear the distant guns of all those fighting still

The battle's in our heads
One we always lose whichever side we choose
We can paint the planet red
Or black and blue instead but we are one world
