Sing for One America

Michele Bair put together a good photo montage of images matched to music by the Dresden Dolls--really more like a video or what I would call, Blog TV (instead of MTV). Ms. Bair's video points out the need for visionary but empathetic leaders like JRE.

Sing Lyrics

There is this thing that's like touching except you don't touch
Back in the day it just went without saying at all
All the world's history gradually dying of shock
There is thing that's like talking except you don't talk

You sing
You sing

Sing for the bartender sing for the janitor sing
Sing for the cameras sing for the animals sing
Sing for the children shooting the children sing
Sing for the teachers who told you that you couldn't sing

Just sing
Just sing

There is thing keeping everyone's lungs and lips locked
It is called fear and it's seeing a great renaissance
After the show you can not sing wherever you want
But for now lets all pretend that we're gonna get bombed
So sing

Sing cause its obvious sing for the astronauts sing
Sing for the president sing for the terrorists sing
Sing for the soccer team sing for the Janjaweed sing
Sing for the kid with the phone who refuses to sing

Just sing

Life is no cabaret
We don't care what you say
We're inviting you anyway...

I want to know how she did this!
