De Burgh, Chris - The Road To Freedom Lyrics




I feel the wind blowing through my doorway,
It's telling me that the summer's gone,
And the winter waits in shadow, waiting with the storm;

I am old and my bones are weary,
And my son he is all I have,
But he has gone to fight for freedom, leaving with my heart;

All my life I have loved this land, worked it with my hands,
But can this freedom send the rain when seed is in the ground,
Can this freedom heal the pain and bring my boy back to me again?
Oh oh oh....

I watched them sail from the rocks below me,
'Twas like the sea in its endless rage,
Many fall on the road to freedom, dying on the stones;

All my life I have loved this land, worked it with my hands,
But can your freedom send the rain when seed is in the ground,
Can your freedom heal the pain and bring my boy back to me again?
Oh oh oh....

Late last night, as the world was sleeping, I dreamed my boy,
He was calling out, 'cos he was lost in some dark forest, and
Snow was falling down, falling on the ground......ooh.....

    And the winter waits in shadow, waiting with the storm;

    I am old and my bones are weary,
    And my son he is all I have,
    But he has gone to fight for freedom,

    But can this freedom send the rain, when seed is in the ground,

    Oh oh oh

    ========================================================
    El camino a la libertad

    Siento el viento soplando a través de mi puerta,
    me dice que el verano se ha ido,
    y el invierno espera en sombras, espera con las tormentas;

    Soy viejo y mis huesos están cansados,
    y mi hijo es todo lo que tengo,
    pero él se fue a luchar por la libertad,
    dejándome con mi corazón,

    Toda mi vida he amado esta tierra,
    trabajándola con mis manos;
    pero ¿puede esa libertad, enviar la lluvia
    cuando la semilla está en la tierra,
    puede esa libertad sanar el dolor,
    y traer a mi hijo a mi nuevamente?
    Ohhhh, OH....,

    Los vi navegar desde las rocas debajo de mi,
    estaba el mar en su infinita furia,
    muchos cayeren en el camino a la libertad,
    muriendo sobre las rocas;

    Toda mi vida he amado esta tierra,
    trabajándola con mis manos;
    pero ¿puede esa libertad, enviar la lluvia
    cuando la semilla está en la tierra,
    puede esa libertad sanar el dolor,
    y traer a mi hijo a mi nuevamente?
    Ohhhh, OH....,

    Tarde anoche mientras el mundo estaba durmiendo,
    soñé a mi hijo,
    estaba llamando,
    porque se había perdido en algún oscuro bosque, y
    la nieve caía, la nieve caía sobre la tierra, ohh, ohh,..

    This incoherent babble doesn't mean anything. This is why people believe in god- they can't hold a logical train of thought.

  52. waketheoblivious

    @maximum411

    An honorable man and an honest scientist, both share the same fundamental commitment to the truth. An honorable man's fundamental commitment, supercedes their devotion to any particular vocation. During the course of testing and experimentation procedures, honorable and professional scientists, self impose their personal ethics & integrity as a natural constraint. Employing subjective reasoning to dismiss a possibility, breeches a fundamental commitment to the truth & science.

  53. waketheoblivious

    Plato defined Wisdom, as "a condition of the soul" that has an affinity with that which it is familiar, becoming drunk when in it's presence. Plato capitalized *Wisdom to be subtely recognized. Consider the following in the context of Plato's brilliant definition, "Would a wise man question the Wisdom of God?"
    Responses range from a simple No, to insane oblivious epistiles of ignorance.
    Divine *Wisdom: Recv'd Holy Spirit = Confirmation of God ~ The Gift Jesus Christ Promised!~

  54. waketheoblivious

    @maximum411

    God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are mention repeatedly throughout the Holy Bible. They are not mutually exclusive entities. Jesus Christ explained very clearly how to receive the Holy Spirit which was His gift to all men. "I will ask the Father to send His Holy Spirit in My name" Receiving the Holy Spirit equates to absolute confirmation of God's existence and that Sacred knowledge results in Divine Wisdom. Jesus Christ, detested organized religion.

    "the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State."
    -Thomas Jefferson

  56. maximum411

    Thomas Jefferson also said:
    "Priests...dread the advance of science as witches do the approach of daylight and scowl on the fatal harbinger announcing the subversions of the duperies on which they live."
    "If we did a good act merely from love of God and a belief that it is pleasing to Him, whence arises the morality of the Atheist? ...Their virtue, then, must have had some other foundation than the love of God."

    @waketheoblivious
    I agree that all men are created equal, with certain inalienable rights. I also believe in reason, and therefore not in a mythical being for which there is no evidence. I agree with the words of one of our founding fathers and framers of the Constitution:
    "In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own."
    -Thomas Jefferson

  58. waketheoblivious

    Your Inability To Understand, A Sworn Oath to God & Country, Does Not Disarm Or Deter A Duty To Defend God's US Constitution. You Who Attack God, Who Attack Countries & Who Attack Humanity, You Are The Enemy. Enemies Of God, Are Enemies Of Those Sworn To Protect God, Country, Constitution & Humanity.

    All Men Are Created Equal, With Certain Inalienable Rights, Endowed By Our Creator. As Goes God, So Goes Freedom, Liberty & Justice For All.

    Atheist/Satanist = EVIL ENEMY TERRORISTS

  59. maximum411

    @waketheoblivious
    How could an atheist be a satanist? Atheists don't believe in supernatural beings/mythical creatures, Satan included. I am an atheist and I believe strongly in the value of every human being and believe that all people deserve to live a good life. What is wrong with that? Have you ever heard of a secular humanist?
    Belief in a god is not freedom- it is often used to justify the oppression of others, and prevents you from engaging in rational and critical thinking.

  60. waketheoblivious

    @delyparker777

    Spot on. Had all who had taken Oath to God and Country to protect the US Constitution executed their duty to perform then those Atheists/Satanists attacking God, Country, Constitution & Humanity would have been executed as World Terrorists long ago. All me were created equal endowed with certain inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Freedom, Liberty and Justice are made possible by recognizing we are One Nation Under God. As goes God, so goes Freedom

    It's time for the American People to fight for freedom and restore her Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. End the Private For Profit Federal Reserve and restore gold and silver as money. If you haven't seen The American Dream Cartoon, The Money Masters, Money as Debt I and II, The Secret of Oz, The Creature From Jekyll Island and The Obama Deception, I very highly recommend them. They are right here on youtube.

    Wow Chris you continue to stop me in my tracks. It's been more than 20 years since I first heard your music and even now 20 yrs later I'm moved to tears when I listen to this song.
