Forced into a single consciousness
Liberty a faint illusion
Existing alongside but never together
Unity a strong delusion

Opposites attract
But can’t assimilate
Words can kill

Murder the innocent
For their innocence can destroy
For the unitary needs the binary
But the binary needs a one and a zero

Create poison, but not the cure
Let it spread
Words can kill

Together is a paradox
For as long as we want to unite
We’ll try to stay apart

Turn words into parasite
Eradicate from the source
No longer can we unite
Through one common tongue

Let’s share a new language
A new understanding
Let’s speak the words of war
Because words can kill
