Bon Jovi reflete sobre violência policial e protestos nas ruas na nova música "American Reckoning"

A banda Bon Jovi lançou o single "American Reckoning". A música mostra como a morte de George Floyd e os movimentos contra o racismo e a violência policial impactaram o grupo de rock e, em especial, o seu líder, Jon Bon Jovi.



Ele escreveu a letra de "American Reckoning" que consegue aliar um tom crítico às autoridades, mas também leva uma mensagem de esperança. O refrão é uma das partes da letra que melhor ilustra o clima da música:


"Stay alive, stay alive

Shine a light, stay alive

Use your voice and you remember me

American reckoning"


"Sobreviva, sobreviva

Acenda uma luz, sobreviva

Use a sua voz e você me lembra

O acerto de contas americano"


Escute "American Reckoning" abaixo:



"American Reckoning"


America's on fire

There's protests in the street

Her conscience has been looted

And her soul is under siege

Another mother's crying, as history repeats

I can't breathe


God damn those 8 long minutes

Lying face down in cuffs on the ground

Bystanders pleaded for mercy

As one, cop shoved a kid in the crowd

When did a judge and a jury

Become a badge and a knee

On these streets?


Stay alive, stay alive

Shine a light, stay alive

Use your voice and you remember me

American reckoning


I'll never know what it's like

To walk a mile in his shoes

And I'll never have to have the talk

So it don't happen to you

Three little words written 'cross the chest

Of a twelve year old who hasn't lived life yet

"Am I next? Am I next? "


Stay alive, stay alive

Shine a light, stay alive

Use your voice and you remember me

American reckoning


Is this a moment or movement?

Is this the tide or a flood?

Is our American reckoning?

Our story written in blood

Or in love

Or in peace


Stay alive, stay alive

Shine a light, stay alive

Use your voice and you remember me


Stay alive, stay alive

Shine a light, stay alive

Use your voice and you remember me

American reckoning

In our American reckoning
