Bruce Springsteen Just Released An Awesome New Anti-Trump Song

Bruce Springsteen and Joe Grushecky just released what is certain to become America’s official protest anthem, entitled, “That’s What Makes Us Great.”

The two singer-songwriters have a storied history writing, producing, and performing together. Springsteen has been a vocal opponent of Trump since the outset of his campaign. Grushecky is also critical of the President. He said of Trump:

“[Trump] lost me the moment he started making fun of special needs people. How could a person like that be president of the United States? Regardless of all the other [stuff], that to me is appalling. I have special needs people in my family and in my neighborhood. I worked with special needs people my whole life and I was really offended by it.”

“That’s What Makes Us Great” is set to debut at 10AM Wednesday morning on E Street Radio on Sirius XM. It will also be available on www.joegrushecky.com and on iTunes shortly thereafter.

The full lyrics are below:

That’s What Makes Us Great

Grushecky:

They come from everywhere

A longing to be free

They come to join us here

From sea to shining sea

Together:

And they all have a dream

As people always will

To be safe and warm

In that shining city on the hill

Grushecky:

Some wanna slam the door

Instead of opening the gate

Aw, let’s turn this thing around

Before it gets too late

Together:

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

Don’t tell me a lie

And sell it as a fact

I’ve been down that road before

And I ain’t goin’ back

And don’t you brag to me

That you never read a book

I never put my faith

In a con man and his crooks

Together:

I won’t follow down that path

And tempt the hands of fate

Aw, let’s turn this thing around

Before it gets too late

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great

Springsteen:

In the quiet of the night

I lie here wide awake

And I ask myself

Is there a difference I can make?

It’s up to me and you

Love can conquer hate

I know this to be true

That’s what makes us great
