Cold Civil War

There's no blue and no gray down here today
No men trying to break free from chains
No Red Scare to fear we're all family here
Fighting on Thanksgiving day
Your mom started preaching some words that she'd read
"Beware your sworn enemy"
I worry she'll find behind the front line
You'll still look like you and I'll still look like me

In this cold civil war across social divides
Reason held siege under attack from all sides
It makes no real matter the truth from the lies
When you're just trying to settle the score
In this cold civil war

As kids we would march Fort Donelson park and
Pretend to be rebels and yanks
Paying no mind when it cam to decide
Who shoots and who rolls down the bank
Dad voted Reagan afraid of the nukes and
Made sure that Momma did too
We grew up watching live on TV
What fear can make people do

In this cold civil war across social divides
Reason held siege under attack from all sides
It makes no real matter the truth from the lies
When you're just trying to settle the score
In this cold civil war

We've wiretapped ourselves gone to bed scared
Locked out our neighbors and friends
Turned a blind eye then justified
Giving up all we once were time and again

There's no blue and no gray down here today
I still hear them rattling chains

In this cold civil war across social divides
Reason held siege under attack from all sides
It makes no real matter the truth from the lies
When you're just trying to settle the score
In this cold civil war across social divides
Reason held siege under attack from all sides
It makes no real matter the truth from the lies
When you're just trying to settle the score
In this cold civil war
