Rage Against The Machine – “Freedom” Official Music Video

“Freedom” is taken from Rage Against The Machine’s monumental debut studio album “Rage Against the Machine” (Epic, 1992). This is a real Rock. This is a true protest song. I respect them.

Rage Against The Machineの1stアルバムの最後を飾るヘヴィな曲。差別と迫害に苦しむアメリカン・インディアンの現状を暴き、政府と権力者を痛烈に批判する。強靭な音と強力なリリック。メジャーシーンで鳴らされる、唯一無二のプロテスト・ソング。

LYRICS

Come
Bring it on, bring it on now

Solo, I’m a soloist on a solo list
All live, never on a floppy disk
Inka, inka, bottle of ink
Paintings of rebellion
Drawn up by the thoughts I think

Oh
Come on, oh

You see a set up like a deck of cards
They’re sending us to early graves for all the diamonds
They use a pair of clubs to beat the spades
With poetry I paint the pictures that hit
More like the murals that fit
Don’t turn away, get in front of it

Brotha, did you forget your name?
Did you lose it on the wall playin’ tic-tac-toe?
Yo, check the diagonal, three brothers gone, come on
Doesn’t that make it three in a row?

Your anger is a gift
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Drop it

Sista, did you forget your name?
Did you lose it on the wall playin’ tic-tac-toe?
Yo, check the diagonal, three million gone, come on
‘Cause you know they’re counting backwards to zero

Environment, the environment exceeding on the level
Of our unconsciousness
For example what does the billboard say?
Come and play, come and play, forget about the movement

Forget about yourself’s
Forget about your culture
And forget about your history and just fly
And just fly

Your anger is a gift
Yeah yeah

Bring that shit in

Freedom for the real
Freedom for the real
Freedom for the real
Freedom for the real
Freedom for the real
Freedom for the real

Freedom, yeah
Freedom, yeah right
Yeah, freedom, yeah
