Land of the free

The Killers

Land of the free es una canción de The Killers, en modo anti-Trump, aceptando la inmigración y en contra de las barreras.

Grabado en sus estudios Battle Born de Las Vegas, Nevada y producido por Jacknife Lee, con voces góspel adicionales de la co-arreglista vocal Lynn Mabry así como de Dorian Holley, Will Wheaton, Sherree Patrice Brown, Akasha Mabry y de las vocalistas de la gira de The Killers, Amanda Brown, Danielle René Withers y Erica Canales.

Lanzamiento y estreno del vídeo oficial el 14 de enero de 2019. El grupo invitó a Spike Lee a realizar el audiovisual, un sentido lamento inspirado por acontecimientos actuales y tragedias acaecidas en Estados Unidos. El cineasta tomó por completo el control creativo sobre el clip que se filmó durante un par de semanas a finales del 2018, desplazándose a la frontera con México para captar escenas de familias migrantes intentando llegar a la tierra de la libertad.


Letra

Can't wipe that wind blown smile from across my face
It's just the old man and 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
In land of the free

When I go out in my car I don't think twice,
But if you're the wrong color skin
You grow up looking over both your shoulders
In the land of the free

And we got more people locked up than the rest of the world
Right here in red white and blue
Incarceration's become big business
And it's harvest time out on the avenue
In the land of the free
Move on, there's nothing to see

So how many daughters?
Tell me how many sons
Do we have to put in the ground
Before we just break down and face it?
We've got a problem with guns
In the land of the free

Down at the border
They're gonna put up a wall
With concrete and rebar steel beams
High enough to keep all those filthy hands off of our hopes and our dreams
People who just want the same thing we do

In the land of the free
