You turn left;

Brother against brother.

You turn right;

Man against wife.


You fight for what you believe in,

But at what cost?


You know it’s right;

This is what matters.

You know they’re wrong,

But why do they beat you so?


You’re supposed to be

on the same side.


You didn’t ask for this;

Why would you?

But they didn’t ask for this either.

Whose fault is it?


So this is civil war.


I just want it to stop.
