lyrics

The Cardinal and the Mockingbird found a maple tree
The Cardinal asked the Mockingbird, "Can we live here neighborly?"
The Mockingbird mocked the Cardinal: "Let's hear your battle cry
You'll bleed red bird, 'cause it's your turn, and you're gonna die."

The Cardinal and the Mockingbird fought for limb and leaf
They fought their fight both day and night neglecting their families
But then one night during their fight they stopped and looked around
The tree was bare only blood was there no families were found

The Cardinal and the Mockingbird torn and all alone
Too weak to fly they both would die in the Hell that they made home
They made their nest a bloody nest and the rest was history
The day The Cardinal and the Mockingbird fought for maple tree
