We Need A Foe

It’s curious to me how joined we are 
When our country is attacked 
But when the peaceful times abound 
We only seek each other’s back 

I guess we need to have a foe 
Our hatred to impart 
And point our anger to each other 
To throw our poison darts 

As once was said in dark LA 
Why can’t we just get along 
And have respect for what we say 
You know, we all belong 

Americans, we’re a special breed 
Our God has placed us here 
To see if we are wise enough 
To see that it is clear 

We all are made of earths fine dirt 
We’re all each other’s kith 
It seems the lesson we should gain 
Is we’re all each other’s gift
