about

Len Xiang's voice is the millennial echo to civil rights activists. Like Nina Simone, his message is a battle cry for justice. "Freedom" is the expressed soul of today's protest that Black lives have always and still do matter. It is a message still relevant even in this generation of so called racial ambiguity.

lyrics

VERSE 1
You lose when you win
In this society that we’re in
Look around
What do you see?
They have nice homes
We have poverty

CHORUS
Can this be the pain we share?
So proud to be with you here
My people we so precious to He
So you see someday we
Shall be free
What’s the word?
Freedom
Free
What’s the word?
freedom

VERSE 2
Forty-one rounds
Was justice for he
He was gunned down
They were set free
How is mommy and daddy supposed to sleep?
When they know that killers roam the street

CHORUS
Can this be the pain we share?
So proud to be with you here
My people we so precious to He
So you see
Someday we shall be free
Free
What’s the word?
Freedom
Free
What’s the word?
Freedom

BRIDGE
Could it be, break it down

VERSE 3
You lose when you win
In this society that we’re in
Take a look around
What do you see?
They have nice homes
We have poverty

CHOROUS
Can this be the pain we share?
So proud to be with you here
My people we so precious to He
For the love of Dr. King
Someday we’ll scream
Freedom
What’s that word?
Freedom
Everybody, every where
Freedom
What’s that word?
Freedom
Put it in your minds
Freedom (3x)
It’s embedded in your souls
Freedom
What’s that word?
Freedom
Everybody every where
Freedom
What’s that word?
Freedom
I know you believe it
Freedom
It’s embedded in our hearts and souls
Freedom
World needs freedom
The world needs freedom
Freedom (repeat 2x)
