The Killers release new song Land of the Free that takes aim at Trump

 VERSE 1: 

Can’t wipe the wind-blown smile from across my face

It’s just the old man in me

Washing his truck at the Sinclair station

In the land of the free

His mother Adeline’s family came on a ship

Cut coal and planted a seed

Down in them drift mines of Pennsylvania

In the land of the free

 

CHORUS  

Land of the free, land of the free

In the land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

In the land of the free

(I’m standing crying)

 

VERSE 2:  

When I go out in my car, I don’t think twice

But if you’re the wrong color skin (I’m standing crying)

You grow up looking over both your shoulders

In the land of the free

We got more people locked up than the rest of the world

Right here in red, white and blue

Incarceration’s become big business

It’s harvest time out on the avenue

Land of the free, land of the free

 

CHORUS 

In the land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

Move on there’s nothing too see

Land of the free, land of the free

In the land of the free

  

VERSE 3:  

I’m standing crying, I’m standing crying

So how many daughters, tell me how many sons

Do we have to have to put in the ground before we just break down and face it

We got a problem with guns

In the land of the free

Down at the border, they’re gonna put up a wall

Concrete and rebar steel beams (I’m standing crying)

High enough to keep all those filthy hands off of our hopes and our dreams (I’m standing crying)

People who just want the same things we do

In the land of the free

 

CHORUS 

Land of the free, land of the free

In the land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

In the land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

Land of the free, land of the free

Land of the free, in the land of the free

(I’m standing crying)
