The Clansman Lyrics

Wake alone in the hills with the wind in your face
It feels good to be proud and be free and a race
That is part of a clan and to live on highlands
And the air that you breathe so pure and so clean

When alone on the hills
With the wind in your hair
With a longing to feel...
Just to be free

Is it right to believe in the need to be free
It's a time when you die and without asking why
Can't you see what they do they are grinding us down
They are taking our land that belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman... Freedom

It's a time wrought with fear
it's a land wrought with change

Ancestors could hear
What is happening now
They would turn in their graves
they would all be ashamed
That the land of the free
has been written in chains
And I know what I want

When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

And I swear to defend
And we'll fight to the end
And I swear that I'll never be taken alive
And I know that we'll stand
and we'll fight for our land
And I swear that my bairns
Will be born free

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what I want
I am the clansman... freedom

And I know what I want
When the timing is right
Then I'll take what is mine
I am the clansman

No, no we can't let them take anymore
No we can't let them take anymore
We've the land of the free
Freedom

Is it right to believe in the need to be free
It's a time when you die and without asking why
Can't you see what they do they are grinding us down
They are taking our land that belongs to the clans

Not alone with a dream
Just want to be free
With a need to belong
I am a clansman
