Storyboard Text

  • * I am free! And I will believe that too! No matter the things I am forced to work, I am free!*
  • The weather is very nice here but I do suppose going to a better land, a land that proposes freedom.
  • I am not, but I believe I am free sometimes when I sing my songs.
  • Did you know not everybody gets to be free. Sometimes they are locked up in a cage.
  • As long as I sing, I could stay all you want me to.
  • You are going to be locked up even longer if you don’t get your act up.
  • You sing as if you really are free from his master.
  • That’s because I am free. As long as I have my voice, I am free.
  • The free is powerful enough to stay free but the locked are strong enough to be free.
