"Divide and Conquer" as written by and Adam/phillips Russell....
Does the shadow live forever?
Will this graveyard be the dance floor
for these corpses?
Will they be the first to fall
and dance the night away?

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word they sell.

Starving loved ones
carry our guns
Take a look at what we've become.
Hungry nations
standing in the ashes of
our enemies remains.

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word they sell.
Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word
That they sell.

So we dance the night away.
So we dance the night away.
So we dance the night away.
So we dance the night away.
The night away.

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word they sell.
Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're buying every word
That they sell

    General Commentthis song is really about how the US has become some country trying to be the best all the time and not being afraid to kill people to be the best. its also about how our country as become completely ignorant to what really goes on like in the line "why do we do this to ourselves? we're buying every word they sell"

    General CommentIt's politics. The government is fucked up but they try to pretend they can control what's going on. And then the people go ahead and believe them.

    Then more problems arise because no one is telling to government to fix things. It all sucks.

    General CommentYeah kind of a song about war hence the title, dance the night away is a way of saying they do nothing about it.
