Singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams just released a soul-stirring and thought-provoking piece of musical activism called “Freedom!” The video expands on his lyrics (see below), with nods to slavery, the environment, science, plus political, gender, and sexual freedoms. Enjoy!

“Freedom!”

By Pharrell Williams


Hold on to me
Don't let me go
Who cares what they see?
Who cares what they know?
Your first name is Free
Last name is Dom
We choose to believe
In where we're fromMan's red flower
It's in every living thing
Mind, use your power
Spirit, use your wings
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

Hold on to me
Don't let me go
Cheetahs need to eat
Run, antelope
Your first name is King
Last name is Dom
Cause you still believe
In everyone

When a baby first breathes
When night sees sunrise
When the whale hunts in the sea
When man recognizes
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Breathe in

We are from heat
The electric one
Does it shock you to see
He left us the sun?
Atoms in the air
Organisms in the sea
The son and, yes, man
Are made of the same things

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
