The Killers – Land Of The Free lyrics
[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

[Chorus]
Land of the free, land of the free
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

[Bridge]
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)
