Well they divided up all the land
 And we've got states and cities
 Cities have their neighborhoods
 And more subdivisions

 There's countries divided by walls
 Oceans and latitudes
 And longitude, longing to find out
 Just what they're missing

 They're lots of area codes
 And nine digit zip codes
 Secret decoder ring codes
 Arteries, shopping nodes

 We'll invent some new computers
 Link up the global village
 And get AP, UPI, and Reuters
 To tell everybody the news

 We'll be one happy neighborhood
 Spread out across the world
 But who's going to stop that burglar
 From breaking in my house
 If he lives that far away

 We'll be just like old friends
 No means to your ends
 The police state is to busy
 And the neighborhood's getting out of hand

 It's not about my politics
 Something happened way too quick
 A bunch of men who played it sick
 They divide, conquer

 It's all here before your eyes
 Safety is a big disguise
 That hides among the other lies
 They divide, conquer

 Well I expect I won't be heard
 Because my silence is assured
 Never a discouraging word
 They divide and conquer

 They divide and conquer
