lyrics

i convinced myself to make a killing
after watching winners on the tv
i found farming life so unfulfilling
i found myself asking, hey why not me?!
and lately you’ve been saying i’ve been winning battles but not the war
that i can’t bring myself to suck it up and see what i’m fighting for
but i ain’t coming home to you unless i’m coming through on my victory tour
now i raise my hand at every reaping
as you notch the nights in the post of your bed
and my little sister is lying at home,
wondering when her big brother will get back his head
betcha that’s why she said
that lately she’s been thinking i’ve been winning battles but not the war
and i can’t bring myself to suck it up and see what I’m fighting for
but i ain’t coming home to you unless i’m coming through on my victory tour
the district sigh as the cannons count to one
the bloody fight keeps carrying on
no sleep tonight, till i see my allies die
till i hear great caesar cry, i have won!
and when your darling son arrives in his capitol cloths
smell of blood on the rose
will you remark to empty rooms
that this isn’t the boy that you’ve always known?
and when the banners disappear
and you are given everything you could imagine
piled high inside your mansion
blessed with every satisfaction
the envy on your peers
will you still stroke his hair?
say that it’s won
say that it’s done
there’s nothing there
will you still say that all that he’s done makes you proud?
what was it for?
wonder no more
look to the crowd
