Unite to Divide - Lyrics & Backstory

Updated: Oct 2, 2020


Verse 1


Inception

Plant the seed

Deception

Only to reap


We see you

Crawling in the cracks

You say you have our backs

While you drive a wedge between us

We see you

Creating a divide

You take them for a ride

But we see right through it


Chorus


Stand united

To divide us

Stand united

To divide us


We see you

We see you

We see you

We see you


Verse 2


Religion

Preach it loud

Deflection

Create a cloud


Chorus


Stand united

To divide us

Stand united

To divide us


Bridge (Instrumental)


Chorus


Stand united

To divide us

Stand united

To divide us


Unite to Divide - Backstory


This song oddly, started in the kitchen and not on the guitar. While cooking, I had this bass line and guitar riff stuck in my head and couldn't shake off. I ended up recording it and it became the start of a new song. The song is political and a reflection of what was unfolding in the country around me with politics, media, business all uniting to divide people in a bid to consolidate their control and further their agenda. Shortly before the pandemic, a massive number of citizens, especially the youth, took to the streets in protest in unity, take a stand and say 'we will not be divided'. This strategy of divide & conquer has been gaining momentum the world over by political personalities the world over. Resources are being mobilised to divide people either on the basis of religion, caste, race, ethnicity, languages,..absolutely anything that can turn one group of people against another (usually a minority) and use the divide to unite the majority. Nearly every part of the world has a similar story unfolding and as long as we fall prey to these tactics, continue to see differences instead of finding similarities, there is little hope of peace, progress & unity.
