What the eyes don’t see doesn’t stop one believing,
If the meanings of regular words are misunderstood.
No matter how much you try to educate a person,
It’s hard to get them to believe their way isn’t good.
Simple words like rights, unity, ethics, and morality
Tend to get lost so often in politic wrangling over power.
And even when the truth is staring someone in the face,
Lies are accepted, and they refuse to use their brainpower.
How can we find enough common ground and face our foes
As one sovereign nation, under God, indivisible and undivided,
If misunderstandings are left to fester and hate allowed to grow
And each half sees the other half as unpatriotic and misguided?
