    Set me free
    these chains I say
    no shoes on my feet
    very little to eat
    I walk the walk every day
    and got alot to say
    but these chains
    these chains I say
    I can feel but can't see
    shackles bearing on my feet
    I thought the slaves were set free
    and I used all that's in me
    but i'm bound by society...........
    Pens crack like whips
    got laws up to my hips
    congress acting like they god sent
    massa done changed his name to government
    no matter what it may seem to be
    my people still haven't been set free.....

    set me free....

    lord....

    set me free!!!

    I can't deal with the enemy
    my eyes were blind now I can see
    get these chains up off me
    how long must I live this way
    getting by day by day
    well
    I got one thing to say
    the good lord will sho make a way
    may not be free here but you will see
    GOD gone take these chains off me
    and to the ones that bound my feet
    you gone be saying.....

    :devil: devil!!!!

    set me free!!!!​



    :bowdown: LEAVE IT IN THE LORDS HANDS!!!! :bowdown:
    :heart: MUCH LOVE FAMILY!!!!! :heart:
