about

This is written in memory of my friend the late Thor Hesla. This track is free in the hopes you will donate something to Doctors Without Borders in honor of Thor's life. Lead vocals by Amy Ray.

lyrics

FREEEDOM

He came at a time when come rain or come shine
there was shit in the air and in the streets
his shine had an edge that cut through like a saw
when the rain came down in cacophonous sheets

freedom is what I chose
what I chose what I chose
what I chose is freedom
freedom is what I chose

Thor had a voice all his own -- it was choice
like a bell when its ringing repeats
At times when he was right the man could emanate some light
as his words rolled out into fundamental streets

freedom

it all hit the fan down in afghanistan
when the taliban killed my friend
they riddled his heart, they tore it apart
but under us I can hear its thunderous
I feel under us its thunderous
under us I can feel its thunderous beats

freedom is what I chose
what I chose what I chose
what I chose is freedom
freedom is what I chose
