"The Great Divide" as written by and Zachary Walker/hanson Hanson....
The earth is shaking under siege
And every breath we'll meet is fate
Still we hunger for a moment of freedom
Even though the hour is late

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

When every eye is one the fortune
It can only breed contempt
They say blood is thicker than oceans
Still we box our brothers in

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
And we're gone
And we're gone
And we're, holding on
And we're, holding on
And we're, holding on

I find hope and it gives me rest
I find hope in a beating chest
I find hope in what eyes don't see
I find hope in your hate for me
Have no fear when the waters rise
We can conquer this great divide

Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo
Whoa, ooo, ooo, ooo ooo

    General CommentThis song is a great motivator for life. It really is. Like the lyrics say, it's about finding hope and being driven to keep going. This song has probably more meaning to me than any other song by Hanson ever written, and I have been a fan since '97.

    General CommentOnly 2 comments?? C'mon guys! This song is amazing!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think my details are right, This song was recorded with an African choir and was put on itunes to raise money for AIDS awareness.

    So I think this song has something to do with living in Africa, and how it can be very tough in certain areas, but there is always hope, hence the lines 'I find hope...'

    I love Hanson, and I don't understand why people still think they haven't changed since Mmmbop.

    General CommentThe lyrics
    They say blood is thicker than oceans
    Still we box our brothers in
    Make me cry.
    Along with I find hope in what don't see.
    I find hope your hate for me.
    Hate is such a strong word.
    Hanson are awesome.
    Anybody else think Ike is like so hott right now.
    Compared to way back when....
