FREE THE BIRD
Prisoner by chance
Lies and whispers in the street
Stand up, be bold
"Free the Bird" was originally Chris's idea. The bird was a symbol of freedom for the people of Hungary, which was under communist rule at the time. Chris had been to Budapest with MMEB, and I had been there with Icehouse, so it was something we both had a connection with. Keith Reid helped with the lyrics, as he had done on You're The Voice. Note the Eastern European scale used by Tone on the solo, once again paying attention to details!
