Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty
We forward in this generation triumphantly

Won`t you help to sing these songs of freedom?
`Cause all I ever had, redemption songs, redemption songs

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear of atomic energy
`Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it`s just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
