lyrics

I should've know before
When I lead the charge

I felt the warmth leave my side
I felt a pain between my shoulders
I turned to face them all alone
I saw blades and feathers soar
Family struck me one by one
In the name of our Father's son

And arrows flew from my brother's bows
I broke the shafts and kept on running
Didn't know this was a civil war
But then arrows flew from my brother's bows

Oh, oh, oh

Will the poison run its course
'Fore I find a place to hide
'Cause that house just isn't home at all
I don't know if it ever was
I saw the anger in their eyes
What did I do that was so wrong
I feel just like a wounded deer
And I'm running numb
I'm running numb

Arrows flew from my brother's bows
I broke the shafts and kept on running
Didn't know this was a civil war
But then arrows flew from my brother's bows

Father, could you tell me please
'Cause I'm bending down on wounded knees
What did I do?
'Cause I'm not sure.
I just want you to be proud of me
