Story Behind the Song

"Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in bonds of fraternal feeling". Abraham Lincoln, November 20, 1860. Seeing the images of recent sad events in the US, lyricist & songwriter Georgina Hilton (Hilton Music UK) was moved to ask "How Can This Be? (In The Land Of The Free)", and thus a new song was born. Krena Dean's vocals brought Georgina's lyrics to life and the single has now been released on digital sites worldwide. Our sincere wish is that this song may awaken that Lincoln spirit of unity.

Lyrics

Another young life ends in the gutter
A mother grieves the loss of her son
But they'll say he was 'some kind of nutter'
To justify the Law of the Gun.
I hear the words of Abraham Lincoln
I wonder what he'd make of today?
His people cry but no-one will listen
And City Hall will turn them away
The Powers That Be have made their decision
'No case to answer' that's all they'll say.
I hear the words of Abraham Lincoln
I wonder what he'd make of today?
United, now divided by
Bloodstains on the sidewalk
How can this be?
In the Land of the Free.
Another young life ends in the gutter
A mother grieves the loss of her son
How can this be?
In the Land of the Free.
How can this be?
