"The Great Dividers" as written by Mike Justian, John Maggard, Paul Mcgrath, Trevor Phipps and Ken Susi....
It's true there were better ones
That led their people
To lead their country
Who cared for this world
But who are we to change
Without the strength of all
The nations will crumble

Feed lies for war
Bring the nations to it's knees
Risking worldly structure and integrity
The balance of our kind controlled by hatred,
Distorted truth and lies
United is the only way to stand
Leaders of the free world lead into the land of the un-free
God sent politics hammered down with a fist too bold
Play the council of pawns in the quest of total control

Free us of this hate
Free us from this hate

Take over the world
Does hate mean freedom
Divide our home
Does hate mean freedom
Take over the world
Divide our home
Does hate mean freedom

    General CommentI'm really thinking this song has a lot to do with the war in Iraq and how the U.S. is isolating itself from the rest of the world.

    General CommentThis song definetely has alot of views in it. First it states that hatred is a way to control masses to make them agree with wars. ie we're told by the media etc that muslims are evil and all terrorists. I think the meaning of this song is to tell people to see past all of these differences and to make their own opinions on who is evil. cuz if u look at it we used to be allies with iraq and our country switches sides on who its against all of the time.

    General Comment"feed lies for war" could have something to the false pretenses for invading Iraq like WMDs and other falso threats.
    "god sent politics" sounds like bush to me. Since he said that god told him to invade iraq.
    "Leaders of the free world
    Lead into the land of the un-free" I believe this is simple the United States leading troops into a Iraq.

    This song is incredible by the way.

    General Commentthe first few lines basically says that a lot of people whom we call "leaders" are false...there have been better ones...and the present ones should act like those good leaders.
    "Controlled by hatred, distorted truth and lies" could mean that modern society (mainly american) is bent on destroying the people of iraq and whatnot because we are being told that they are evil and are terrorists...every single of 'em...

    this is one of my favourite songs on the album
