Home of the Brave (Shitty Mortal Kombat Version)

Lif’s response to 9/11 (written in the immediate aftermath of the attacks) is a detailed lesson in geopolitics whose final couplet serves as a powerful reminder of the costs of empire.

The beat to the song, which heavily and prominently samples Laurie Anderson’s “From the Air,” is itself an allusion. That song’s lyrics are from the vantage point of a flight captain informing the passengers that their airplane is about to crash.
