Divided, We Stand
Welcome to the home of the free,
The land of the divided
Welcome to a land filled with greed,
The one-percent who have the need
To silence dissent, keep those below them
Complacent in a system that favors money
Over ethics and honesty
Welcome to a nation full of deceit,
Land of misinformation and misery.
Welcome to a nation where the wheels
spin propaganda for a leader.
Welcome to a nation where a leader
Forgoes democracy and takes a page
From a communist and dictator,
Crowning himself King of the ages.
Who needs dignity when you've got vanity?
Who needs honesty when you're a liar?
Welcome to a nation where truth doesn't matter
Welcome to a country on fire.
Divided, we stand, divided we fall.
America the Beautiful, America the tall.
Who will be there to save us all?
Inspired by Sixx: A.M.'s "Barbarians." What a strange timeline we live in these days.
