Now Is the Time

“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery”
What a great line written for all
Reach out for your own salvation
And pick up the others who fall,
Your hearts ache for freedom’s sweet passion
So cast those chains they put in your head,
If you let them, they’ll keep you in bondage
Then replace you when you are dead.
Those scales we rely on for justice
Were installed knowingly compromised
And the weight of this crumbling Union
Has caused all their hopes to capsize
They’re dragging us down and they’re screaming
With a voice that’s no longer feared
The people are ready, we knelt for too long,
Scotland, your time is here.
Nightmares are only for dreamers
What we have is something so real
We are holding, touching, tasting it
And we love the way it feels
We are wakened, arisen and up off our knees
We’re united and standing as one
We listened and rallied as never before
We are Scotland and our fear is of none.

Paul Colvin.
