Our Divided House

from What Kind of World by Joe Benoit



O say can you see the destruction?
The bodies in the dawn’s early light
No one was equipped for a battle
No one even knew how to fight

We just lost another 10,000
He said without a hint of regret
You’re failing to distract us with chaos
I promise you that we won’t forget

Our divided house will surely fall
We stand for none if we don’t stand for all
It was nice knowing you America
Though you made my cry
Now we must say goodbye

Call in all your goons with their big guns
After all these people have signs
They’re blocking up the road with their freedom
And you gotta get to the church on time

We just lost another 10,000
He said without a tear in his eye
“The economy is gooder than ever”
He doesn’t give a fuck if you die



from What Kind of World, released January 15, 2021
