Yes America Can!

with 6 comments

Today democracy is returning to the U.S.A.

It’s coming through a hole in the air,
from those nights in Tiananmen Square.
It’s coming from the feel
that this ain’t exactly real,
or it’s real, but it ain’t exactly there.
From the wars against disorder,
from the sirens night and day,
from the fires of the homeless,
from the ashes of the gay:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.
It’s coming through a crack in the wall;
on a visionary flood of alcohol;
from the staggering account
of the Sermon on the Mount
which I don’t pretend to understand at all.
It’s coming from the silence
on the dock of the bay,
from the brave, the bold, the battered
heart of Chevrolet:
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.

Take it away Leonard Cohen…

  4. Amanda, fuck yeah!!! 😆

    Johan, ek sou voorberei het vir die begin van die einde van die beskawing. Terug na die grotman.

    Andrew, when she opens her mouth I can’t help but hum the Dixie Chicks’ song “Wide, Open Spaces”.
