Divide and Rule
Denizens harken, fight the sedation, Guard natural instinct from infiltration Persuasion flows through weakened defences Below the threshold the battle commences Stand firm and resist, do not bend or yield With all of your might, pick up the shield One last mighty stand for truth and free will Before the mind's taken, counter the kill Open to suggestion, unaware of the duel? One more machination of divide and rule. Caught in the storm of political power, Cometh the puppet, cometh the hour Send in the clowns to action deflection Send in the migrants to split insurrection Let them eat cake 'til they're too fat to function Let them hard-drink and drown in compunction Route tribal instinct to all kinds of sport Flood the black markets with all things to snort The pawn in the game is the new power tool; One million more victims of divide and rule. Underclass, working class, middle class etcetera There's lies, damn lies, statistics and conjecture There's left, right and centre in a pantomime horse "To the Knacker's Yard Charlie, the nag's run its course" They saw no difference between the elbow and arse May the force be with them or should that be farce? They say revolution is three meals away So we turn on, tune in, drop out and play Big Brother is watching whilst gathering fuel As the nation is burning in divide and rule.
