"Concrete and Barbed Wire" as written by and Lucinda Williams....
This wall divides us, we're on two different sides
But this wall is not real, how can it be real?
It's only made of concrete and barbed wire

[Chorus]
Concrete and barbed wire, concrete and barbed wire
It's only made of concrete and barbed wire

Back in Algiers, my darling broke my heart
But he can't seem to break down this wall
With two strong hands he couldn't move it at all
And it's only made of concrete and barbed wire

[Chorus]

Down in Opelousas, dogs are at the gate,
And they're mean, lord, they're mean
There's a wall between us, but it's not what it seems
It's only made of concrete and barbed wire

[Chorus]

Somewhere in Louisiana my sugar's doing time
But he can't spend time with me
If he could get over this wall he'd see
That it's only made of concrete and barbed wire

[Chorus: x2]

    My Opinioni'm aware this song is fairly self-explanatory, about several literal iterations of the only-existing-in-a-material-sense-but-still-impenetrable "concrete and barbed wire" dividing her from her lovers/those mean-ass dogs, but i swear i swear i swear on/to something/someone really important, this is the most perfectly generalized and optimistic perusal of modern political "debate" i've seen in my entire life
