LIBERTY DENIED – Music and Social Commentary in the Post-Paradigm Era

another sleazy politician/the latest in a long line
another fat cat in the wings/another fast-track thing
and then another lie to take back/another decade set-back
wake up to the news – it’s all up to you/it comes down to you
from RIGHTAWAY – FellMusic THREE

The song LIBERTY from Volume 3 of the Venice Arts Club Music Project provides narrative and gives voice to a sullen Statue of Liberty while describing the American ground of being at the onset of the post-911/post-paradigm era. Garcia Lorca’s monologue in the final minute of LIberty illustrates a hunger for the truth that America could be, but has yet to achieve.
