Roger Waters

"Liberty"

TROUBLEMAKER
We want to get rid of the Guillotine
And abolish pain somehow
But to make a world free of tears
We build these scaffolds now

OFFICER
Come dry your tears and pray explain
How can we abolish pain?
If we don't build these scaffolds now
These instruments of injustice
These tools of execution

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
We've given to the Guillotine
More blood than you have ever seen
What end could justify these means?

OFFICER
We've given more of our blood

MALE CHORUS
We've given

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
We've given more of our blood

MALE CHORUS
We've given

OFFICER
We've given more of our blood

MALE CHORUS
More of our blood

CHORUS
We've given, we've given
More blood than we could turn to love

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & OFFICER
Than we could ever hope to turn to

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Love

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & OFFICER
More blood, than we could
Ever hope could turn to love

CHORUS
We've given, we've given
More blood, than we could turn to love

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Come angles of mercy
Come doves of peace
Shine a light on all these warring clubs and cliques

OFFICER
The jackal and hyena who prowl these city streets
Would turn in their own mother for a little extra meat

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
From the piles of dead the Republic comes to life
Her mutilated body reeling like a drunken fishwife
Gives birth to the future

OFFICER
Gives birth on the street

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST, OFFICER & CHORUS
Impure and exultant she gives birth to the dream

RINGMASTER & MARIE MARIANNE
When the dream

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
When the dream

RINGMASTER & MARIE MARIANNE
Is understood

REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST
Is understood

RINGMASTER, REVOLUTIONARY PRIEST & MARIE MARIANNE
That no man should live in chains
That the great and the small are equal after all
