‘Democracy is coming to the U.S.A.’

“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, As time cannot decay I’m junk but I’m still holding up this little wild bouquet Democracy is coming to the USA To the USA”
- Lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s song ‘Democracy
“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 USA”
Lyrics from Leonard Cohen’s song ‘Democracy
