Divided



            
Unknown silhouettes behind the scenes
An invisible sniper in the green
Deceit for all   Elected ones
Divided people, Come undone

Awake the youth to no avail
Decided lies, monsters prevail
Energy drained, Gas exposed
Leaders fight, lawyers deposed

Any excuse, let’s divide
The moment is here, let’s decide
Choose left or right, Your brother said
Either way, Go make your bed

So raise that voice that’s never heard
Tell them you’re outraged in all of your words
Divide the poor, Divide the race
Divide your brother, Don’t leave a trace

Control the masses, Control the herd
Control the message, Control the word
All this is simple.  Make up your mind
We let them lead us,   Time after Time
