Election Day. #HopeTuesday. TunesDay.

Three videos for Election Day. Who do we want to be?

Some years ago Sean Kelly of The Samples penned what has to be the election day anthem. It acknowledges what we all know, it notes the reasons we have to abandon hope, and still it insists that we carry on.

It’s Election Day 2016. What choice will you make about the world you want to live in?

Carry on. (Lyrics below.)

Now, two from Matthew Grimm, who probably gets what real Americans are about as well as any artist alive.

Ultimately we are, and we must be, one big union.

Carry On
by Sean Kelly
The Last Drag

Trusting is one thing I don’t know
When it comes to the campaigning man
But I’ll meet you at the election
When I vote for the hope of this land

Carry on
Carry on

Just take a good look around you
The ghettos begin at your feet
And there’s a family of six through a window
Looking way down at you on the street

Carry on
Carry on

Send us in any direction
Airports, buses and cabs
But somehow through all this confusion
We lose things that we’ve never had

Carry on
Carry on

A funeral was held in the winter
The old lady pulls from her purse
A thousand tears on a napkin
While waving away at the hearse

Carry on
Carry on

Trusting is one thing I don’t know
When it comes to the campaigning man
But I’ll meet you at the election
When I vote for the hope of this land

Carry on
Carry on
