Lyrics by Dave Gwyther
Music by Dave Gwyther & Sturt Wills

"This song goes to those who fight
For the dying the dying of the light
For those who fight for freedom
Without taking it away"
We cry for the lives of the braves
For the men and the women who gave
All that they had just to save
The lives of the oppressed and enslaved

They fought for freedom for all
They said there'd be no more walls
Nothing will stop us being free
Freedom for you and for me

And it doesn't matter who you are
If your skin is light, medium or dark
If your god is Yahweh, Allah or Krishnu
I should be free and so should you.

We cry for the lives of the braves
For the men and the women who gave
All that they had just to save
The lives of the oppressed and enslaved.
I should be free to believe what I chose
Free to marry who I want to
Free to dream to reach the sky
Free from hunger free to be alive
Free from oppression and free from hate
Free from fear and the blinding of race.


So this song goes to those who fight
For the dying, the dying of the light
For those who fight for freedom
Without taking it away

They struggled against their own friends
Who told them they were wrong, should be ashamed
And in the face of the struggle to go on
They stood up and said war is wrong
They stood up and said war is wrong
They stood up and said war is wrong
They stood up and said war is wrong
But I will fight so freedom can go on

I will fight so freedom can go on
I will fight so freedom can go on
I will fight so freedom can go on
Yes, I will fight so freedom can go on.
