  • Divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together, we will fall

    Divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together, we will fall

    How many miles must I walk in your shoes
    'Fore I know how you feel, know how you feelin'?

    How many times must I see you on the news
    'Fore I know it's for real, know it's for real? And

    How many nights must I hear you sing the blues?
    Another gun man running on the loose

    How many times must I turn a blind eye
    And deny what I'm seeing, deny what I'm seeing?

    Another protest to another march
    Incite a riot, boy
    Ready, set, charge
    Another gun fest, drop another bomb
    Another war child
    Tell me, what the fuck is going on?

    Another scandal from the man in charge
    Another white collar criminal at large
    We're waking up, we're catching on
    We've had enough, we're standing strong

    Oh, divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together, we will fall

    Divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together, we will fall

    They built these walls, so high
    Let's reach across that great divide

    How many crimes do we have to live through for 'fore we start intervening, start intervening?
    How many lives are we going to lose, 'fore we lost all the meaning, lost all the meaning
    Another battleground to another war
    Another time to speak less, listen more
    We're waking up, catching on
    We've had enough, we're standing strong, yeah, oh

    Divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together, we will fall

    Divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together (together), we will fall

    'Cause they built these walls so high
    Let's reach across that great divide

    'Cause they built these walls so high
    Let's reach across that great divide

    Brick by brick, stone by stone
    Let's tear this down until it's gone
    Until it's gone, until it's gone

    Brick by brick, stone by stone
    Let's build the bridge to get us home
    We're not alone, we're not alone

    Yeah (we're not alone)

    Oh, divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together, we will fall

    Divided states of America
    Divided states of the world
    If we don't all stand together (together), we will fall

    'Cause they built these walls so high
    Let's reach across that great divide

    They built these walls so high
    Let's reach across that great divide (divide, divide) Writer/s: Daniel ODonoghue, James Barry, Mark Sheehan
