Lyrics

Verse:
Baby's got a badge of honor
Right across her pretty cheek
Baby got it from her lover
The drink it made him weak
When he kisses her he leaves his poison
Lingering upon her lips
It makes her leavin' legs go frozen
All the way up to her hips
PreChorus:
And they wake up in the mornin' with an echoed voice in the wind
Beggin' for mercy as the day brings battle again
Chorus:
'Cause there ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Broken bottles on the kitchen floor
And fightin' and fightin' and fightin' only makes it worse
'Cause the talkin' turns to fightin' when their ears are closed
They'll go blind before they ever see the truth unfold
And sooner or later they're gonna need a hearse
'Cause there ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Verse:
The neighbors hear the china shatter
But they don't wanna get involved
They don't think it really matters
'Til the police have been called
PreChorus:
And they wake up in the mornin' with an echoed voice in the wind
Go about their business 'cause it's not their battle to end
Chorus:
'Cause there ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Broken bottles on the kitchen floor
And fightin' and fightin' and fightin' only makes it worse
'Cause the talkin' turns to fightin' when their ears are closed
They'll go blind before they ever see the truth unfold
And sooner or later they're gonna need a hearse
'Cause there ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Bridge:
Silence falls like a flag on the ground
As they carry her body through that quiet town
Chorus:
'Cause there ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Broken bottles on the kitchen floor
And fightin' and fightin' and fightin' only makes it worse
'Cause the talkin' turns to fightin' when their ears are closed
They'll go blind before they ever see the truth unfold
And sooner or later they're gonna need a hearse
'Cause there ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
Ain't nothin' civil 'bout a civil war
