This Uncivil War Lyrics

This Uncivil War - Martina Mcbride

Written by:Gretchen Peters

 

There's a silence on the front lines

 

You can cut it with a knife

 

You can stay and take your changes

Or you can run to save your life

 

And one side is retreating

 

And the others running scared

 

And the drums of war are beating

 

Even through its undeclared

 

And both sides say they're winning

 

And both sides know they're losing

 

And neither one knows what they're fighting for

 

And in the quiet little places

 

You can see the little faces

 

Huddled right outside the bedroom door

 

Praying for an end to this uncivil war

 

Papa needs a new job

 

So hes swallowing his pride

 

Oh but it don't go down easy

 

And it eats him up inside

 

And mama she don't notice

 

Little sisters ragged dress

 

Lately she don't notice

 

Much of anything

I guess

 

They're just fighting off the hunger

 

Trying to keep from going under

 

But the wolves just keep on

Gathering round the door

 

There's no place to run for cover

 

So they're turning on each other

 

Cause there really ain't no winners anymore

 

Just victims of this uncivil war

 

There's a silence on the front lines

 

You can cut it with a knife

 

You can stay and take your chances

 

 

Or you can run to save your life
