I am a lover of being in charge, though it's my enemy
And it sounds unlike me to not be the one with the authority

It's time to bow out of this race
'Bout time for me to be in last place
I got myself in a civil war
It's time to fight for, fight for
What's worth fighting for

Joining the lines of
Those who have raised and flown a white flag
And I know there is a victory
In losing myself
And gaining liberty

It's time to bow out of this race
'Bout time for me to be in last place
I got my self in a civil war
It's time to fight for, fight for
What's worth fighting for
Sins worth fighting for

Surrender is such
A hard pill to swallow
Surrender is such
A hard pill to swallow
Surrender is such
A bitter pill to swallow
Surrender is such
A bitter pill
It's a bitter pill
It's a bitter pill to swallow

It's time to bow out of this race
'Bout time for me to be in last place
I got my self in a civil war
It's time to fight for, fight for
Bow out of this race
'Bout time for me to be in last place
I got my self in a civil war
It's time to fight for, fight for
What's worth fighting for
A civil war
My civil war
