miss america - Isaac Dunbar

The Experience: She's not the girl I used to know... Sadness, disappointment, and maybe even betrayal...

The Vibe: Despair. Hope?

The Topic: Disappointment

The Tension: We still dream (I'll miss America) VS. But our dream seems to be broken for good  (We're never going homei).



Music video: miss america switches back between a Little Prince-esque Isaac Dunbar building a very imperfect little planet, and Isaac Dunbar in an empty broken house. One is the despair of never quite accomplishing your dream. Another is the sadness of a dream and home that have already failed.

The Meaning of miss america: Isaac Dunbar takes stock of the tension and crazy polarity that divides America. It's a recognition of promises that haven't yet been fulfilled - broken promises trigger our common sense. Those promises reflect the greatness of the American dream... and the fragility of dreams built on the work of very imperfect human beings. That disappointment can easily lead to despair, either of the American dream itself, or of ever reaching it: I miss America but we had to go. miss america sits right there in the sadness without deciding whether to rebuild, or tear it all down.

Ask yourself: Are you a healer or a revolutionary? How do you know what choice to make?

Album:  - (2020)

LYRICS:

Not much here that's left for us and we don't know what's right
We're a planet ambidextrous and both sides lost the fight
There's a chrome-plated fated future that I saved for us
And I know that you've grown up so good but the good's ambiguous

'Cause friction and haze
They weigh down our days
Tear off your chains
We're going away

I'll miss America, but we had to go
A brand-new era with everyone I know
I'll miss America and all her pretty woes
But don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no

But don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no

Broken promises trigger our common sense
We don't feel the love
Fallen narcissists don't have monuments
Just have skin to touch

'Cause friction and haze
They weigh down our days
Tear off your chains
We're going away

I'll miss America, but we had to go
A brand-new era with everyone I know
I'll miss America and all her pretty woes
But don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no

But don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no

It's such a crazy polarity
Just shows how little I really know
And I misjudged her apparently, yeah
She's not the girl that I used to know

I'll miss America, but we had to go
A brand-new era with everyone I know
I'll miss America and all her pretty woes
But don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no

Ooh, but don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no
Ooh, but don't feel bad or turn back
We're never going home, no
