Lyrics

Look in the eyes of the
Homeless man
Tell me what you see
In the eyes of a jobless man
Tell me what you see
What about the eyes
Of a prisoner
What do you see
Now you' ve seen it all
It is time to make up your mind
Don' t try to hide it
'Cause I can see it all
In your face yeah
It the same questions
That I ask myself every time
To be or not to be


Chorus: (x3)
Do you wanna be
A well fed slave or a hungry free man


What is the point in being free
When you can' t get no job
What is the point in being free
When you can' t get food
What is the point in going out to work
When others can get for free
What is the point in being free
When you don' t have no home
Now you' ve heard it all
It is time to make up
Your own mind
To be or not to be
Oh ho ho ho


Chorus:
Do you wanna be
A well fed slave or a hungry free man
till fade
