Under the Skin of a Skeleton Zebra

Civil War

There’s a civil war inside my head
Deep trenches only separate what words only said
No flags of truce, no one will resign
Wish there’d be a winner to give me peace of mind

And I cry all the tears
Of the mothers of the fallen soldiers
On either side, on either side

There’s a civil war inside my heart
Armed forces you can’t doom or disregard
Unceasing bursts under my skin
Now that I shoot you my foe, former kin

And I cry all the tears
Of the mothers of the fallen soldiers
On either side, on either side

There’s a civil war inside my blood
Battlefields of promises I never forgot
I would have lent you my meadow shed
Flowers you could bring to the land of the dead

Won’t you go ahead?
Shivering and wet
Mines like seeds are spread
All is dear and dread
