For the record...
This is Everlast and I just wanted to say editing the video with the blurs was not my choice iTunes wouldn't run the unedited version ... and for the person who thought the video was anti american you obviously only saw what you wanted to see I chose to show images in the video that weren't represented in the media . There as many shots of American soldiers and there struggles there as any other images I think it's pretty balanced but your opinion is respected non the less .....
Get over it
I have been a soldier for over a decade. Here is a quote for you "War is hell lest we grow to fond of it" This song tells the truth of some of what is going through our heads over there. I love my brothers and sisters in arms but I disagree wholeheartedly with our government. Please don't think that when someone objects to our government they are anti-american; just the opposite they are exercising their rights that we are fighting for. Good song brother, pray for us and for a peaceful end to this conflict. Have a good day everyone.
When I first listened to this song, I knew it would be part of my collection. I've always believed that our art must reflect our philosophies, or it isn't ours, and even if he knows that many will disagree Everlast has never feared speaking out and turning his philosophies into something that sinks down into your soul and digs in its claws. Even the things we don't want to see are pulled into our vision by his deep, resounding voice and by the brutal, sincere reality of his lyrics. My ex-husband was a soldier in Iraq the first time we marched towards Mecca in 1990. He left his son and newborn daughter behind to accept the fate that he had signed for when he offered his life to serve this country. Then, and now, people have come to believe that, in speaking out against war, we somehow denegrate the sacrifices of our troops... but that isn't the case. It is possible to disagree with war, and still cherish the sacrifice of the soldiers who died honorably to serve as they have promised to do. It becomes our responsibility not to bind the soldiers who offer their lives for the sake of the nation that called to them to the policies of those who make the rules but don't pay the cost. I think Everlast reminds us that, in accepting war as a necessity and with no plan to end and no motivation to seek peace, we are actually diminishing the sacrifice of these men -- throwing it away on the bluff and bravado of individuals whose hands are clean of all but the figurative blood, and whose food does not taste of sand and bitterness.
