We had an Island once so free,
Free for all people, just like me,
With lands we had, we could do Exactly what we wanted to.

Just like the Indians of History past.
We had freedom here at last.
We tried the city to our disgust,
for us the island was a must.

We tried the cities and all their roars,
but couldn't stand it one day more.
The sin, the lights, the glint and glare
was sure glad to get out of there.

Like I said , the Island free was just the place for folks like me.
But now I find since I got back The people there have been sidetracked.
The devil now can laugh you see, at people saddened, just like me.
Our freedom's gone and who's to blame?
The people here, and I am ashamed.

Every law that's made you see,
Takes freedom away from you and me.
But people here can't understand,
That's what's wrong with our once- free land.

Why buy land? It's just a tool,
It don't belong to me nor you,
It was put here, for you and I.
The lands, the lakes, the sea's the sky.
But now it's owned,
or so they we can use it, yes but we must pay.
