Maren Morris has delivered a powerful political statement in a new protest song “Better Than We Found It.”
“When lines of tomorrow are drawn/Can I live with the side that I chose to be on?/Will we sit on our hands, do nothing about it?/Or will we leave this world better than we found it,” the country singer-songwriter sings in the track she released on Friday.
“Better Than We Found It” was co-written by Morris, Jessie Jo Dillon, Jimmy Robbins and Laura Veltz over the summer.
Morris says the protest song addresses “exactly how I feel right now.”
“It’s the most American thing to protest, and protest songs have been so embedded in American culture,” she added. “I think the world right now is sort of in a perpetual mourning period, and I wanted to have a song that had weight but also had hope.”
