Free Them

Free Them..
I wrote this song in 1984 and I think it is just as relevant today as it was all those years back.. I hope it’s a universal song about a universal condition….nothing’s changed in all that time and the clever words and promises of politicians are just as empty and solutions just as distant…Free Them is about poverty…poverty of hope more than anything else…it is an anthem for the poor and repressed all over the world …and it is a song that we The Other Side are proud of….
We hope to be shooting a video for this track at the end of the summer and if any film makers would like to be involved we  would be delighted to hear your ideas…

Everybody wants and needs a future …
Something they can have and hold on to …
In recent times in this country ….
No one seems to know what to do …

Give them hope ….
And give them .. give them some pride …
And free them …

And free them …

Free them .. free them ..free them .. today …
Free them .. free them .. free them .. today …

Young man fighting for his country …
Does he really have a job too do…
Old man trying to light his fire…
he stays in bed he can’t afford the fuel …

Give them hope …
And give them .. give them some pride …
And free them …

Free them .. Free them .. free them .. today …
Free them .. Free them .. free them .. today …

Empty shopping bag …
Dont you feel a fool …
No more money left …
why are times so cruel …
Now you know …
