[1971]
Parole e musica di Mark Farner
Nell’album intitolato “Survival”
La canzone vera e propria è preceduta nell’incisione da un lungo dialogo tra Don Brewer e Mel Schacher dei Grand Funk che sembrano non intendersi sull’attacco del pezzo… Io ho preferito ometterlo perché, almeno dal punto di vista testuale, lo trovavo privo di interesse…

Survival

Quando ero bambino credevo di essere libero ma più tardi ho scoperto che la libertà che mi hanno dato non era vera, era una menzogna… Ora non ho più nessuna libertà, nemmeno quella di piangere, di esprimere come mi sento senza la mia libertà… Voglio libertà, voglio la libertà che mi avevano promesso per poter vivere in questo paese, la voglio, non posso vivere senza…
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

I've been waitin' for such, such a long, long time,
To tell you all about these feelings of mine.
Something tells me there just has to be a better day,
And that's why I came here to say ...

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

Growing up, I was free in my childhood years,
And now they tell me I can wash away my tears.
These tears explain the way, it's the way that I feel,
Because the freedom they give me ain't real.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

I want freedom, the kind that they promised me,
Just for livin' in this country.
I want the freedom, the kind that makes me feel strong,
But, let me tell you, something is wrong.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it.
Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, so you best not take it.

Just let me take it, my mind can't make it without ...
I can't take it, said I just can't make it ...
