Unformatted text preview: | t r l l Ike-fig though a hole in the air, ill-films nights in Tiananmen Square. h calling from the feel “I flis ain't exactly real, or 3% real, but it ain't exactly there. From the wars against disorder, ’ fiom the sirens night and day, fromthe fires of the homeless, fiom the ashes of the gay: Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. It's coming through a crack in the wall; on a visionary flood of alcohol; fi‘om the staggering account of the Sermon on the Mount which I don't pretend to understand at all. It's coming fiom the silence on the do ck of the bay, from the brave, the bold, the battered heart of Chevrolet: “ Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. It's coming from the sorrow in the street, - the holy places where the races meet; Pfi'om the homicidal bitchin' that goes down in every kitchen to determine who will serve and who will eat. From the wells of disappo intment Where the women kneel to pray for the grace of God in the desert here and the desert far away: Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. Sail on, sail on O mighty Ship of State! To the Shores of Need Past the Reefs of Greed Through the Squalls of Hate Sail on, sail on, sail on, sail on. It's coming to America first, the cradle of the best and of the worst. It's here they got the range and the machinery for change and it's here they got the spiritual thirst. It's here the family's broken I and it's here the lonely say that the heart has got to open in a fiandamental way: Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. It's coming fi'om the women and the men. 0 baby, we'll be making love again. We'll be going down so deep the river's going to weep, and the mountain's going to shout Amen! It's coming like the tidal flood beneath the lunar sway, imperial, mysterious, in amorous array: Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. Sail on, sail on I'm sentimental, if you know what I mean I love the country but I can't stand the scene. And I‘m neither left or right I'm just staying home tonight, getting lost in that hopeless little screen. But I‘m stubborn as those garbage bags that Time cannot decay, I'm junk but I'm still holding up this little wild bouquet: Democracy is coming to the U.S.A. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHI9BTkap8 AW ...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
