Divide and Conquer

I hear voices echo around me
Hatred spewed from venomous fountains
We speak ill of the people we know
I’m amazed by the extent of human growth

How many people must die by the gun?
Our only choice is whether to fight or run
But we were never asked who we’d like to be
So what’s the real reason you don’t like me?

As half the world starves and fades to black
We overdose, over indulged, raise a flag
Wage war, praise the lord, berate the poor
Celebrate and hand awards as fans applaud

We live in a system bred out of division
Over populated prisons, victims and villains
As we christen evil in the name of religion
Doctrines and teachings and all the misgivings

For all the talk of democracy, a free press
There’s destabilised regions, we’ve failed to address
They don’t want us standing together, stronger
That’s why they stand together to divide and conquer
