As The Fiscal Cliff Approaches, Time To Reflect With A Little Music For Thought: “This Is Not America”

There was a move made a while back called “The Falcon and the Snowman” and it was about who selling America out and it was a good movie and the soundtrack alone was equally as good as the movie and one song that sticks in my brain today is this one as a “normal” environment we have known for years is changing and are we in a place that is no longer familiar to us in many ways…in watching our government with trying to agree and collaborate with solutions, which doesn’t seem to be going very well, this song keeps kicking around in my head (lyrics below) “this could be a miracle”? How many snowmen are there out there? Anyway the lyrics seem to somewhat say this is not the same as the country I grew up in as we watch current events and values get replaced with new ones that seem to leave out some of the greatness of the past, inequality seems to be the big one that comes to mind.
A little piece of you The little peace in me Will die For this is not America Blossom falls to bloom This season Promise not to stare Too long For this is not a miracle There was a time A storm that blew so pure For this could be the biggest sky And i could have The faintest idea Snowman melting From the inside Falcon spirals To the ground So bloody red Tomorrows clouds A little piece of you The little piece in me Will die For this is not America There was a time A wind that blew so young For this could be the biggest sky And i could have the faintest idea This could be the biggest sky This could be a miracle
