The blood
For your freedom
The horror
That you taught to them
To kill
All your sheep
In the fold your power fades without control

Privacy invasions
The press dilates
A glamorous, divisible United States

Blown apart
The blood of soldiers
Testify to what prachers
Told us do or die
Distortions caught us
Out in the cold
I'm swear I'll never got that old

Privacy invasions
The press dilates
A glamorous, divisible United States

Blown apart
The precious sound
Blown apart
Weapons of peace
Blown apart
Uncivil disobedience
Blown apart
Burning these streets
Go!

On the TV map we're worlds apart
In line we're side by (Side)

Privacy invasions
The press dilates
A glamorous, divisible united States

Blown apart!

    General CommentQuoting Thomas Barnett explaining the meanings of the songs:

    Like "Cassandratic Equation" from "Chorus of One" [EP, 2001] that was written before November 30, 1999, and the Seattle [World Trade Organization] riots, "Invisible Colony" was written before all of this birther, deather, corporate-manipulated, fake-grassroots-conservative movement. The song is about the divisible, glamorous United States. Our national unity has been a fabrication for a long time, and now people are actually seeing the cracks. If you allow yourself to be manipulated, then the powers that run the country will step in and manipulate you. But if you can understand what's really at stake, then theatrics of a nation state aren't even important to our humanity and to our civilisation. That took longer to say than "Invisible Colony" is a song. [The tune is one minute, 18 seconds]
