Lana del Rey responds to mass shootings epidemic with new song + donates proceeds



Lana Del Rey, who was once very much removed from current socio-political issues, is taking charge and doing her bit to emphasize the epidemic of mass shootings in the United States while most politicians are standing idle. The singer also revealed that all proceeds from the songs will be donated to local organizations, dealing with the trauma of last week's violence.





Full lyrics:

Took a trip to San Francisco
All  our friends said we would jive
Didn't  work, so I left for Fresno
It was quite a scenic drive
Pulled over to watch the children in the park
We  used to only worry for them after dark

[Chorus]
I’m  still looking for my own version of America
One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly
No  bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide
It's just a dream I had in mind
It's just a dream I had in mind
It’s just a dream I had in mind

[Verse 2]
I  flew back to New York City
Missed that Hudson River line
Took a train up to Lake Placid
That's another place and time, where
I used to go to drive-ins and listen to the blues
So many things that I think twice about before I do, no


[Chorus]
I’m  still looking for my own version of America
One without the gun, where the flag can freely fly
No  bombs in the sky, only fireworks when you and I collide
It's just a dream I had in mind
It's just a dream I had in mind
It’s just a dream I had in mind
