Where did normal go?

Verse: 
The painful separation, when it came,
Pictured desperation filled the frame
Understanding eludes, though I try
I really don't understand why
 
Pre-Chorus:
Differing eyes see the same exact thing
Different explanations and the misery it brings 
 
Verse:
I used to know you but not anymore
Let your theories and your anger roar
True believers in an upside down land
Drink the Kool-Aid and it's Jim Jones again 
 
Pre-Chorus:
Differing eyes see the same exact thing
Different explanations and the misery it brings 
 
Chorus:
The time for polite is over and gone
What you believe is absolutely wrong
Two warring camps on separate sides
A canyon so deep and a mile wide
Divided We Stand
 
Verse:
Tragic that we've come to this place,
Each wears contempt on our weary face
Common ground crumbles and falls away
Leaving a void in these contentious days
 
Pre-Chorus:
Differing eyes see the same exact thing
Different explanations and the misery it brings 
 
Chorus:
The time for polite is over and gone
What you believe is absolutely wrong
Two warring camps on separate sides
A canyon so deep and a mile wide
Divided We Stand
 
END

There seems to be more and more of such division in the world. Well said, Mike.
