"Rockin' In The Free World" (live from Toronto)

There are colors on the street
Red, white, and blue
People shuffling their feet
People sleeping in their shoes
You got a drug

There's a warning sign in the road ahead
There's a lot of people saying we'd be better off dead
Don't feel like Satan, I am to them
So I try forget them any way I can

Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world

Theres a girl in the night
With her baby in hand
Under an old street light
Next to a garbage can

Now she put her kid away, she's gone to get a hit
She hates her life and what she's done with it
That's one more kid that'll be cool
Never get to fall in love, never get to be held

Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world

We silence them with culture
Made you look, you do do what I say
Got to feeling like you ma-ma-ma-ma-may
Those who want you dead understand what you feel
Got your manical manner, voice of steel
Got the flags and rocks, we got the eyes of cocks
I wish 'em stay up on the board until he kill the jocks
I got the super soul, he got the man of steel
They got the high you want to feel
And in you the name is real
Keep on rockin' in the free world

Play down

It would be difficult to work harder than that man
Keeping us in the free world
That's all I want to say

There's a thousand points of light
For the African man
There's a kinder, gentler coming to help your hand
There's department stores and toilet paper
Styrofoam garbage for the ozone layer
There's a fan of the people, he's standing on the side
He's got fuel to burn, he's got roads to drive

Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world
Keep on rockin' in the free world

There's someone that needs to understand
I'm here to see Pearl Jam
There making me believing again
I'll never say never again
They're making me believe them again

They rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Rock, rock, rock, rock, rock

Thank you
Thank you sir
I love you

(This song, written by Neil Young, was performed by Pearl Jam with Bono on co-lead vocals in Toronto on Sept. 19, 2005. The full concert is available for download exclusively at pearljam.com)
