I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Those who speak the truth are heroes, anything less is a lie.

Three Redemption Songs

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 All Mighty.
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.
Bob Marley - Redemption Song

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery,
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
'Cause none of them can stop the time.

How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it's just a part of it,
We've got to fullfil de book.
So won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had,
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs,
Redemption songs.-
JOHNNY CASH & JOE STRUMMER - REDEMPTION SONG

These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had,
Redemption songs.
All I ever had,
Redemption songs.
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom.

"Without people your nothing"- Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros - Redemption Song
