Leonard Cohen - Democracy is Coming to the USA

Democracy is Coming to the USA

Itís coming through a hole in the air
From those nights in Tiananmen Square
It's coming from the feel
That it ain't exactly real
Or it's real, but it ain't exactly there
From the war 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

It's coming from the sorrow in the street
The holy places where the races meet
From the homicidal bitchin'
That goes down in every kitchen
To determine who will serve and who will eat
From the wells of disappointment
Where the women kneel to pray
For the grace of God in the desert here
And the desert far away
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A

Sail on, sail on
O mighty ship of state!
To the shores of need
Past the reefs of greed
Through the squalls of hate
Sail on, sail on, sail on...

It's coming to America first
The cradle of the best and of the worst
It's here they got the range
And the machinery for change
And it's here they got the spiritual thirst
It's here the family's broken
And it's here the lonely say
That the heart has got to open
In a fundamental way
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A

It's coming from the women and the men
Oh baby, we'll be making love again
We'll be going down so deep
The river's going to weep
And the mountain's going to shout Amen!
It's coming like the tidal flood
Beneath the lunar sway
Imperial, mysterious
In amorous array
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A

Sail on, sail on
O mighty ship of state!
To the shores of need
Past the reefs of greed
Through the squalls of hate
Sail on, sail on, sail on...

I'm sentimental, if you know what I mean
I love the country but I can't stand the scene
And I'm neither left or right
I'm just staying home tonight
Getting lost in that hopeless little screen
But I'm stubborn as those garbage bags
That time cannot decay
I'm junk but I'm still holding up
This little wild bouquet
Democracy is coming to the U.S.A


To All Americans

I apologize for my crazy thread about Americans spreading cooties. It will never happen again.

I was really responding to what I perceived as Trumpís xenophobia and I should never have dragged any of you into it.

The rest of us continental Americans are afraid. We donít want any of this spreading and it is terrifying that you havenít been able to get a handle on this.

Anyway, those are my reasons for the freak-out, it doesnít excuse it, but it does explain my crazy behaviour.

Again, I am sorry for making this even the littlest bit worse for everyone.

Take care of yourselves and we will get through this together.

With love and hope for our future,

Tanya in Ontario, Canada

No one wants American cooties!

Since Donald Trump has seen fit to ban Europe for doing a poor job of managing this virus then perhaps Europe should start banning all Americans, because your record with it hasnít exactly been stellar.

One thing is for sure, the rest of the Americas canít take the chance of having any American come into their country so perhaps it would be a great idea to ban all Americans from entering any of our countries. Thatís fine, the Trumpists wanted isolation from rest of the world, well, now you can have it!

Democracies cannot survive without the rule of law

If you donít have that then everything else just falls by the wayside. You need to show that you are a functioning state and can take care of your own business fairly. This man is just a dictator ruling by tweet and vengeance. He is systematically dismantling the DOJ just by flapping his big mouth. He doesnít know how to run anything so he hides behind his cell phone. He is a coward that is deathly afraid of being called out on his bullshit. Thatís why his voice is so loud so he can drown out everyone else.

His brain is deteriorating before the world stage. No one can even barely stand to look at him, he is so gross and irrelevant. Why is one party so scared of this vulgar moron? Heís destroying the United Statesí standing in the world. That in itself should be a call to arms to dump him. Do the republicans enjoy being the butt of jokes around the world? If I were them it would be country over party all the fucking way because how can you be sure youíre even going to have a country after this?

What is WRONG with you republicans?? DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY!!

Evil is supposed to be self-destructive.

How can such a hateful, diseased and bloated man keep going without having a heart attack? Come on cholesterol, do your duty.

I feel for Americans and how terrifying it must be right now....

Itís also not easy living in a neighbouring country, having to look over your shoulder all the time, wondering when the virus is going to hit here.

Hope to God you guys can stop this nazi bullshit otherwise North America is never going to be the same.

Iíve never been more glad you guys came out revolution instead of evolution like we did, so hopefully you will fight.

I truly hope everything goes right with Canadian election on Monday and Justin wins. Doesnít seem like anyone else gives a damn about it right now.

Guys I need help with twitter

Is it my imagination or is twitter deleting my tweets?

Is twitter just having problems on their side or are they going crazy because I made two comments, first one, wondering why a sizeable amount of Americans donít care about whatís happening on their southern border, and second, stating that the Americans need to self-correct.

Well, as soon as I made them, they disappeared. iíve noticed others have made far worse comments and are not edited or harassed. What is it about? I am a Canadian and maybe no one wants to hear comments on American politics from foreigners.

Sigh, I have no idea whatís going on.
