Freedom Fighter
Anthony B Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The mouths of envious
Always find another door
While at the gates of paradise they beat us down some more
But our mission's set in stone
'Cause the writing's on the wall
I'll scream it from the mountain tops pride comes before the fall

So many thoughts to share
All this energy to give
Unlike those who hide the truth I tell it like it is
If the truth will set you free
I feel sorry for your soul
Can't you hear the ringing 'cause for you the bell tolls

I'm just a freedom fighter
No remorse
Raging on in holy war
Soon there'll come a day
When you're face to face with
Face to face with me

Can't you hear us coming?
People marching all around
Can't you see we're coming?
Close your eyes it's over now
Can't you hear us coming?
The fight has only just begun
Can't you see we're coming?

I'm just a freedom fighter
No remorse
Raging on in holy war
Soon there'll come a day




When your face to face with me
Face to face with me

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Anthony B's song Freedom Fighter are a call to action for those who seek justice and equality in the face of oppression and discrimination. The opening lines suggest that while envious people always find another opportunity, those who strive for paradise are beaten down. Despite this, their mission is set in stone, written on the wall, and they will scream it from the mountaintops until it is heard. The chorus declares the singer's role as a freedom fighter, raging on in a holy war with no remorse. The final verses suggest that despite opposition, the fight has only just begun, and soon those in power will come face to face with the singer and others like him.


The song's message is powerful and inspiring, and the use of the metaphor of a holy war adds an extra layer of intensity to the lyrics. The theme of standing up against oppression is a common one in reggae music, and Anthony B's song is a fine example of the genre. The energy of the song is infectious, and it is easy to imagine the crowds at a concert chanting along with the chorus. The final lines suggest that the singer and his fellow freedom fighters are a force to be reckoned with, and that those in power should be afraid.
