Live Free or Die Tryin'

lyrics

verse 1:

you cant hold me/
not ever since i made my 3rd eye blink/
i think it was ’03/ thats when i saw the world for what it be/ illusions of being free/
i/ i was stuck in the matrix/
doing anything to get a paycheck/ naked/
of the knowledge that i really needed/ meanin’ i was just goin’ by what they was feedin’ in terms of freedom/
but now i know what it means/
it means to work for MINE and not YOUR dreams/
the 9 to 5 is a scheme/
creativity/ in exchange, money/
before you know it/ you’re like 30/
and your whole life is working/
in a cubicle, 6 x 6/
coffee mug left, right - stack of post its


chorus:

its the perfect time to get free/ its the perfect time to get free
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)

verse 2:

savin’ the babies/
we gotta get em before they’re exposed to the greed/
love ‘em and don’t leave/
community in dire need/
takes a village to raise a seed/
my paper is gon’ bleed if it means I sacrifice my being/ to inspire the next Queen/
I see/ her in the audience, step into the light/
your life starts tonight/
give the naysayers - middle fingers/
i give a thumbs up/ to all my dreamers/
if you can see it/ go get it/
and if you can’t, then put your heart in it/
put your art in it/
time is short further from start than finish/
this is your life/
only one chance to live it right

chorus:

its the perfect time to get free/ its the perfect time to get free
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
i’m gonna live free (get free)/ or die tryin (or die tryin)
