Lyrics to ‘Breaking Up The Union’ by Ice Cutters:

Why worry if you’re left or right?
No decision can be black or white
They give you odds, but the outcome is certain
Every actor must prepare for the curtain
Minds open, and curtains are drawn
The King’s fate, delivered by Pawns
You make plans, and hope they will follow
How many times, can you make them swallow?
An Election broke up the Union (3)
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
Your palace is a pile of bricks
It’s magic in the way that it sticks
Grant pieces to the faraway people
It keeps them happy but the power is lethal
An Election broke up the Union (3)
Goodbye, Goodbye, Goodbye
Instrumental
I’m not saying it’s going to be bad
It’s not broken, but the feeling is sad
Scattered members of the family setup
Seek fortune in a federal getup
An Election broke up the Union (3)
Goodbye, Goodbye
Goodbye, Goodbye
Goodbye, Goodbye
