Since music is like a second food for me, I have decided to post each week, my favorite lyrics from a song. So here is the first one from many to come.

This one is like my recent anthem. Here I am just posting my favorite part of the entire song.

From the song – In The Beginning by K’Naan. Get It here from iTunes

It’s better to light a candle than to curse the dark
In the eyes of the youth there are question marks
Like freedom
Freedom for the mind and soul
We don’t see them
See them for their worth at all
That’s why we lead them
Lead them to these wars and what is it we feed them
Feed them our impurities and who it is we treat them
Treat them like the enemy humanity will need them
Need them like the blood we spill and where freedom

Freedom for the hearts we fill
Mislead them
They hunger for the love we give
But we cheat them

The cops beat them when all he wants is his freedom
So they defeat them
Whatever spirit he’s got
Beat them

And they teach them that the rest of the world don’t need him
And he believes it’s a disease that he’s heathen
Put up your fists if all you want is freedom
Put up your fists if all you want is –

And we keep holding on
And we keep being strong
And we keep going on
And on and on and on
