What makes you think the song is about the US? Icaro is Ecuadorian
(I'm not saying it's NOT about the US, necessarily, just asking your opinion)
Well, the United States is the nation that is often victim of scrutiny from other countries and such. I suppose I'm use to the generalization of "the states" being "the united states of america" . as far as an album title is concerned, i'm guessing based on my not having heard the album yet in entirety.
