tUnE-yArDs – My Country

My country, ’tis of thee
Sweet land of liberty
How come I cannot see my future within your arms

 

“You know, that’s the whole idea of the American dream, that we can all have it as long we work hard — and that is untrue. There are so many ways in our country where we are not giving the same opportunities to everybody.”  [Merrill Garbus aka tUnE-YarDs, in an interview with NPR]
