Freedom Time

Lauryn Hill

Freedom Time

Everybody knows that they're guilty, everybody knows that they've lied
Everybody knows that they're guilty, yes resting on their conscience, eating their insides.

It's freedom, said it's freedom time now, It's freedom, said it's freedom time now. Time to get free, oh give yourselves up now, it's freedom, said it's freedom time

There's a war in the mind over territory for the dominion
Who will dominate the opinion, schisms and -isms
Keeping us in forms of religion, conforming our vision to the world church's decision
Trapped in a section, submitted to committee election
Moral infection, epidemic lies and deception
Insurrection of the highest possible order
Distorting our tape recorders from hearing like under water
Beyond the borders fond of sin and disorder, bound by the strategy of systemic depravity
Heavy as gravity, head-first in the cavity without a bottom
A fate worse than Sodom
What's got 'em drunk off the spirits, truth comes we can't hear it 'when you've been programmed to fear it
I had a vision I was falling in indecision, appalling, calling religion some program on television
How could dominant wisdom be recognized in a system of antichrists and majority rules
Intelligent fools
PhDs in illusion, masters of mass confusion, bachelors of past delusion
Now who you choosin, the head or the tail
The bloodshed of the male, or confidence in the veil
Conferences at Yale discussing doctrines of Baal, causing people to fail, keeping the third in jail
His word has nailed everything to the tree, severing all of me from all that I used to be
Formless and void, totally paranoid, enjoyed darkness as
Lord keeping me from the sword, I was blocked from mercy, bitter than cerasee
hungry and thirsty for good meat we would eat and still dine at the table of deceit
How incomplete
From confrontation to retreat, we prolonged the true enemies' defeat
Destitute of necessity
Causing desperation to get the best of me
Punishment till there was nothing left of me, realizing the unescapable death of me
No options in the valley of decision
The only doctrine supernatural circumcision
Inwardly only water can purge the heart from words
The fiery darts thrown by the workers of the arts
Iniquity, shapen in, there's no escaping when your whole philosophy is paper thin
In vanity, the wide road is insanity
Could it be all of humanity? Picture that
Scripture that! The origin of man's heart is black
How can we show up for an invisible war
Preoccupied with a shadow, making love with a whore, aching in sores
Babylon the great mystery, mother of human history, system of social sorcery
Our present condition needs serious recognition
Where there's no repentence there can be no remission, and that sentence more serious than Vietnam, the atom bomb, and Saddam, and Minister Farrakhan
What's going on? What's a priority to you? By what authority do we do
The majority hasn't a clue
We've majored in curses, search the chapters, check the verses, recapture the land, remove the mark from off our hands, so we can stand in agreement with His command
Everything else is damned, let them with ears understand. Everything else is damned, let them with ears understand…

It's freedom, said it's freedom time now, It's freedom, said it's freedom time now. It's freedom, I'm a be who I am, it's freedom time, said it's freedom time

Everybody knows that they've lied, Everybody knows they've perpetrated inside Everybody knows that they're guilty yes, resting on their conscience, eating their insides.

Get free, be who your supposed to be, freedom, said it's freedom time now, freedom, said it's freedom time, freedom, freedom time.
