Independence Day – Whiteheart

I apologise in advance for the very 80s looking video, but the theme of this song is perfect for 4th of July celebrations. The song is “Independence Day” by Whiteheart.

Here are the lyrics:

Listen to our declaration
Listen to our testament
We’ve been given a revelation
We’re sure of where we stand

So let the banner
Be unfurled
We found a Light of hope
In a dying world

Hear the myth of modern man
You’re the god of your own land
Call your weak spineless fools
You’ve given up your right to rule

But I’ve been to the land of me
And I know I was never free
Freedom came
When I gave it all away

So we’re callin’ it Independence Day
I call it Independence Day
Let the rockets blaze across the sky
Raise the flag of praise way up high
Let the doubters call it what they may
It’s Independence Day

You can work to crown another hundred kings
But I believe in a better dream
They may call it slavery
But the biggest chain I knew was me

So let the idols tumble down
The walls of lies crumble to the ground
I know where salvation can be found
Let the idols tumble down

That’s why they call it Independence Day
I call it Independence Day
Let the rockets blaze across the sky
Raise the flag of praise way up high
Let the doubters call it what they may
It’s Independence Day

So join in the celebration
It’s a birth of a holy nation
It’s people alike
We are proud to say

It’s why we call it Independence Day
I call it Independence Day
Let the doubters call it what they may
‘Cause we call it Independence Day
