about

In celebration of the Fourth of July (US Independence Day), Kara Square and Piero Peluche release "Democrazy," a folk pop track that yearns to understand the politics of today.

lyrics

There was a promise made
Dreamers believed
But we didn’t know
What we were headed towards…

Good fights were won
Some felt left behind
And the demagogue
Drafted them for…

And it was not their fault
They too believed
Hopes and promises
That became this…

Lies are common place
Facts are misconstrued
Blame is thrown around
Living in this…

Dissent is demonized
Protest deemphasized
Outrage denied
Living in this…

Crazy
Democrazy
Crazy
Democrazy

Everything I thought
All of the progress made
On the verge of collapse
Living in this…

And we’re all afraid
Of everyone we meet
Are you with us or them
Living in this…

Crazy
Democrazy
Crazy
Democrazy

If you have nothing to lose
And think it all is rigged
And you’re out of hope
You open up to…

So many people hurt
So many need real change
Enough to burn it down
Force us into…

Crazy
Democrazy
Crazy
Democrazy
