Cyrus: A country singer-songwriter and a philanthropist

Billy Ray Cyrus gathered his thoughts about the events currently circulating around our nation, and put them into a rousing and thought-provoking anthem titled, “The Goddess of Democracy.” Ever since he was a young boy, Cyrus admits being a “real deep thinker and stuff.” And this quality is evident in his new song.

“The Goddess of Democracy” allude to religious icons and political issues that are bound to leave questions about the state of our great nation. Further, Cyrus intentionally premiered the song during the celebration of Independence Day on the Fourth of July, as his way of expressing his sentiments on the multifaceted concerns faced by humanity these days.

 

Talk about freedom boys
Wouldn’t you love to have some now
When you gonna make that choice
The golden calf or the sacred cow?

The paranoia of prophecies
Require we sedate
So I hid my dreams and memories
Before it got too late
I won’t deny
I liked to cried
Guess it was her fate

A Song that Ignites Patriotism

And if you’re wondering about the title, it actually came from World History. “The Goddess of Democracy” is linked to the Tiananmen Square event that happened in China, in 1989. The figure of a defiant woman holding a torch has become a rallying symbol for the divided protest movements that were demanding for justice, fairness, and equality. The song makes you have a list of events that rages your concern to the motherland. The power of Cyrus unleashes that patriotism hoarded inside of you.

On social media, Cyrus shared the timely and relevant video with some thoughts to ponder:

“On this #4thofJuly I wanted to share this thought from my new band. It’s a sneak peek only up for 24 hours. Hope this brings some perspective and stimulates patriotism and loyalty to our beloved America.”
