Con un polémico tema de inmigración vs patriotismo, The Killers estrenaron el video de su más reciente sencillo titulado “Land of the Free”, dirigido nada más y nada menos que por Spike Lee.

La canción, que habla sobre problemas que pasan y causan los Estados Unidos es una bonita balada que nos hace reflexionar, y más aún cuando el ojo de Spike Lee creó un video muy crudo acerca de la vida que se vide en el borde de ambos países, México y Estados Unidos.

No sabemos con seguridad si “Land of the Free” es el primer tema del siguiente album de Brandon Flowers y compañía o sólamente se trata de un sencillo por aparte, mientras tanto te invitamos a verlo y decirnos qué te parece.

La letra dice:

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 (Ooh)
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

CORO:
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)


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
And we got more people locked up than the rest of the world
Right here in red, white and blue (I’m standing, crying)
Incarceration’s become big business
It’s harvest time out on the avenue

CORO


Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
I’m standing crying (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
I’m standing crying (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
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? (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
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

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
In the land of the free (I’m standing crying)
