Abraham's Daughter Lyrics

abraham took isaac's hand
and led him to the lonesome hill
while his daughter hid and watched
she dared not breathe she was so still

just as an angel cried for the slaughter
abraham's daughter raised her voice

then the angel asked her what her
name was she said i have none
then he asked how can this be
my father never gave me one

and when he saw her raised for the slaughter
abraham's daughter raised her bow
how darest you child defy your father
you better let young isaac go

I love this song! If you want to listen to other Hunger Game songs try The Daughter's Lament by The Carolina Chocalte Drops.

Isaac is either prim or Peeta, Abraham is either Snow or the game makers, the daughter is Katniss, and the angle is either Snow or the game makers

Abraham (the games) takes isacc (district trubutes) and sends him to the arena to fight alone until katniss raises her voice and becomes the mockingjay. The angel could be snow or the capital people.

This song is about Abram's sacrifice of his son Isaac. It's a modern lyrical interpretation of the bible story and what happened in it. However, it is used as a method of symbolism in The Hunger Games

It is all about Katniss and The Hunger Games. Katniss is the daughter, the angel is Snow, Abraham is the gamemakers, and Isaac is the Districts.

Bible story, but its like its condemning it. the angel is crying for isaac's death, and the girl saves isaac, but gets no credit for it. probably how it actually happened too.
