In June, 2004, I posted the lyrics to “Become America” by The Call. It remains a favorite of mine – I think Michael Been does a wonderful job of capturing the mixture of patriotism and frustration that I felt throughout much of President Bush’s term. Thanks to the iLike gadget, I added a clip of the song (not sure why only a clip – the other songs are full-length) to the site.
Re-reading the song, it reads differently to me. We’re not there yet – but it feels like we’ve made progress. And that’s a good thing.
