"A House Divided" as written by Dave Mustaine and John Karkazis....
We all know about the hate you're breeding
And we pay for the machine you're feeding
You can never shut up, you can never shut down
This house divided...

(We all know, we all know, something's wrong, we all know)

Something's wrong about the way you're thinking
The rats are jumping, and your ship is sinking
You can never get on, you can never get off
This house divided...

We all hear about this case you're pleading
Your demands have gone beyond conceding
You can never get in, you can never get out
This house divided...

This is a sad day for violence
When speech results in silence
I'm supposed to hate you
You're supposed to hate me
We can never agree

[Solo: Chris]

Now we've become so desperate
Don't you forget you asked for it!
I'm supposed to hate you
You're supposed to hate me
We never agree

[Solo: Chris]

[Solo: Dave]

We all know about the hate you're breeding
And we pay for the machine you're feeding

A house divided...

    General CommentI think this track is basically an extension of 'Washington is Next'.

    "Disengage their minds, sabotage their health,
    Promote sex, and war, and violence in the kindergartens...
    Keep the public undisciplined till nothing left is sacred..."

    As the world progresses from WiN, where there is so much chaos, the next natural step is that divisions start. There is no unity and it becomes harder for people to get organised, to start changing things for the better.
