"What Good's Religion, When It's Each Other We Despise"

I've been listening to Placebo a good deal as of late. Perhaps it is because their lyrics are very poignant and powerful. Maybe it’s the melodic underpinnings of the tunes, but here's a sample of the lyrics from one of their 2003 tunes off the Sleeping With Ghosts album and the eponymous song from that album. In particular, it says a whole lot about our current geopolitical situation:
This one world vision
Turns us in to compromise
What good's religion
When it’s each other we despise
Damn the government
Damn the killing
Damn the lies
