Uncivil War

Uncivil War
Lyrics

UNCIVIL WAR...UNCIVIL WAR
HOW LONG MUST WE FIGHT…THIS UNCIVIL WAR
THE SAME OLD WOUNDS…WE OPENED BEFORE
NOBODY WINS…AN UNCIVIL WAR

THE LINES ARE DRAWN
THE GLOVES ARE OFF
SMILES ARE GONE
WE’RE ALL TALKIN’ TOUGH

YOU CURSE ME OUT
AND I CUSS U BACK
EVERYTHING WE LOVE
IS UNDER ATTACK

THE SPIRITS ARE BACK…IN RAGS BLUE AND GREY
THOUGHT THEY WERE GONE…BUT THEY WON’T GO AWAY

UNCIVIL WAR...UNCIVIL WAR
HOW LONG MUST WE FIGHT…THIS UNCIVIL WAR
THE SAME OLD WOUNDS… WE OPENED BEFORE
NOBODY WINS…AN UNCIVIL WAR

YOU’RE SURE YOU’RE RIGHT
I’M SURE YOU’RE WRONG
WHY CAN’T WE ALL
JUST GET ALONG

YOU YELL FAKE
AND I YELL REAL
NOBODY SEEMS TO CARE
HOW THE OTHER GUY FEELS

KEEPING COUNT OF EACH OTHER’S SINS
ONLY PROBLEM IS NOBODY WINS

UNCIVIL WAR...UNCIVIL WAR
HOW LONG MUST WE FIGHT…THIS UNCIVIL WAR
THE SAME OLD WOUNDS…WE OPENED BEFORE
NOBODY WINS…AN UNCIVIL WAR

IT’S TIME TO CHILL
AGREE TO DISAGREE
CUT OUT
ALL THE HOSTILITY

CALL OFF THE FIGHTING
AND BRING IT TO AN END
WE CAN SHAKE HANDS
AND BE FRIENDS AGAIN

NOBODY’S BACKING DOWN
SOME WON’T EVEN TALK
THE TABLE’S EMPTY
WE ALL TOOK WALK

HE’S SAYS LEFT SHE SAYS RIGHT
ONE SAYS PEACE…THE OTHER SAYS FIGHT
ONE HAND’S A PALM…THE OTHER’S A FIST
ANOTHER CHANCE FOR LOVE…JUST GOT MISSED

UNCIVIL WAR...UNCIVIL WAR
HOW LONG MUST WE FIGHT…THIS UNCIVIL WAR
THE SAME OLD WOUNDS…WE OPENED BEFORE
NOBODY WINS…AN UNCIVIL WAR
NOBODY WINS…AN UNCIVIL WAR
