United States Dividing

Red and blue and white, it seems we can’t make up our minds again this time
Whatever we decide, I wonder will it cost our lives again this time
A freedom we can’t feel for all the people who keep saying that they’re trying
Sure weighs heavily on families of ones who lie at the front lines dying

When will they have enough of someone’s else blood?
To protect securities, they lie and say, “It’s for our country.”

Everyone wants to tell us what we should and shouldn’t do,
But they don’t wanna do anything about United States dividing
So tell me whatever happened to that little golden rule
That worked long before the fools had their say and they’re the only ones denying
Something’s gotta change; something’s gotta change

Rich and poor and broke, it seems that money gets to vote for us these days
Ninety-nine percent is wondering will ever end for us these days
Another freedom we can’t feel for all the people who keep saying that they’re trying
Is the reason why we’re still sending so many kids to bed empty and crying

When will they have enough of someone’s else blood?
To protect securities, they lie and say, “It’s for our country.”

Everyone wants to tell us what we should and shouldn’t do,
But they don’t wanna do anything about United States dividing
So tell me whatever happened to that little golden rule
That worked long before the fools had their say and they’re the only ones denying
Something’s gotta change; something’s gotta change

The next time you place your hand over your heart
Think about exactly where you are

Everyone wants to tell us what we should and shouldn’t do,
But they don’t wanna do anything about United States dividing
So tell me whatever happened to that little golden rule
That worked so long before the fools had their say and they’re the only ones denying
Something’s gotta change; something’s gotta change
Something’s gotta change
