A missile sent today
Killed only 3
The rest were saved
They're far enough away
To not really feel
The direct effect on me

They caught him today
Based ridiculously
On his race
They weren't sure
He even did it
But they needed a random face

Are these symptoms, symptoms of a simpler cause?
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing we are
Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity

He won today
Smug self-satisfaction
On his face
He blew the others
Out of the water
He said he was glad they were disgraced

Are these symptoms, symptoms of a simpler cause?
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing we are
Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity

He stole what he could
He only had minutes
Before he'd be caught
He justified
Every penny taken
By blaming the gap between the rich and rich not

Are these symptoms, symptoms of a simpler cause?
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing we are
Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity
Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity
