Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/2/17

I’ve spent most of the day buried in a podcast, but I suppose it did something more than just offer entertainment; it actually got me up to clean my house because it felt weird to just sit on the couch and listen to something without actually doing anything else.  Isn’t that weird?  I mean, you don’t do anything when you watch television, but somehow listening to something is entirely different and it’s weird, at least for me, to be idle while listening.

I’d thought of the theme late last night and was going to schedule the post earlier today, but then I got pulled away and I’m just barely making it back down here to get it done.  I suppose it’s probably cliche, what with the holiday coming up, but I figure it also lends itself well to the state of things right now.  I would say it’s only here in the states, but that isn’t at all the case, and I believe this subject never gets weary, or at least it shouldn’t.  Also, there are a ton of songs out there, so I’m thinking the only real issue will be picking just one.

So, the Song Lyric Sunday theme for this week is to  post a song about freedom.

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at helenvahdati@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  9. I shared the theme with my son and this was the first song he though of. I am not a big fan of Overkill, but when I read the lyrics I was reminded of the project I am working on at work, WWII. It has been my privilege to interview WWII veterans and the men and women who grew up during this time. It was truly a time where Americans came together for a common purpose, and everyone was effected by this war. This was a time where people came together to fight for freedom, and I believe we owe a debt of gratitude to these men and women. This is where my thoughts go when I think of freedom because “Together we are bound, a common bound in freedom.”

    From the islands to the cities, from the ports into the sea
    We are strong, we will always be
    Blazing through the wreckage, burning all we see
    The life we lead committed to be free

    Our union is a fortress
    Together we are bound
    A common bound in freedom and in sound
    So raise your voices high
    For miles around to hear
    Let them know we are drawing near

    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand
    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand

    A peaceful co-existence is dropping out of sight
    So band together, together we will fight
    Blasting the resistance, marching to the top
    They started this, we say when it stops

    Strike fear within their hearts
    Strike down those in your way
    Let them know that we live today
    They throw us into flames
    Did not hear our cries
    But now, from the ashes we arise

    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand
    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand

    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand
    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand

    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand
    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand

    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand
    In union we stand
    As they blaze across the land
    In union we make a final stand
