Freedom – (Peter Gabriel's “BIKO” cover)

Αυτό το τραγούδι είναι αφιερωμένο στους Παύλο Φύσσα, Steven Biko, και όλους όσοι αντιστάθηκαν σε οποιαδήποτε μορφή καταπίεσης και το πλήρωσαν με τη ζωή τους. Οι στίχοι είναι του Fotis Skourletis, ο Παύλος Συνοδινός έκανε την παραγωγή και ο Απόστολος Μόσιος (Apostolos Mosios) την ερμηνεία.
Η εισαγωγή, είναι απόσπασμα από το «Σμυρνέϊκο Μινόρε», ηχογράφησης του 1919 με την Μαρίκα Παπαγκίκα.  



Pavlos Fyssas (1979 – 2013), also known as Killah P (from “Killer of the Past”), was a Greek anti-fascist rapper who was murdered in Athens, by Giorgios Roupakias, member of Golden Dawn. Roupakias was released from pre-trial custody in March of 2016 despite having admitted to the murder to a judge after spending the legal maximum time before being proceedings. He has since been required to stay in his home except for court appearances, with armed guards keeping him both restricted and protected.
This song is for Pavlos Fyssas, Steven Biko and everyone who stood against any kind of oppression and paid for it with his life.



You stood up for your friends
you stood up for your rights
beaten and stabbed to death
under a cold street light

Freedom, freedom
You fought there for your freedom
Freedom, freedom
You fought there for our freedom

We're still marching, we're still marching
from time to time
In the name of a hero of our time

High hopes from dawn to dusk
just before the touch of the night
songs and thoughts from boyhood
about you and me alive

Freedom, freedom
You fought there for your freedom
Freedom, freedom
You fought there for our freedom

We're still marching, we're still marching
from time to time
In the name of a hero of our time

Nothing can be wasted
nothing to be thrown out
every act even the final one
turns silence into sound

Freedom, freedom
You fought there for your freedom
Freedom, freedom
You fought there for our freedom

We're still marching, we're still marching
from time to time
In the name of a hero of our time

And the eyes of the world are watching now...
