Lyrics

You watched him knock me down and not get up again
You saw in it a chance to get a step ahead
You used to be my partner and it was painful parting ways
It must have been another bond I was not meant to make

I’d rather be a bastard than admit your blood is mine
I know where all this came from cause I’ve known you all your life
It meant so little to you, how I did what I could do.
Is brother just another word that means nothing to you?

I took you up the mountain, you complained about the view
Telling the same stories, oh the hand they dealt to you
I have seen how the flowers die just a little bit sooner each year
As long as you are here

If it was just the way they raised you, why then don’t you ever change? Yeah, I know how hard it is because they raised me up the same
And whose fault is it this time that you shot the windows out?
Another bottle empty in your big old empty house

Don’t you ever wonder how you look to someone else?
Not to your latest victim but someone who knows you well
You take that goddamned finger and you point it at yourself
You should have learned the way by now to speak but you just yell

I took you up the mountain, you complained about the view
Telling the same stories, oh the hand they dealt to you
I have seen the flowers die just a little bit sooner each year
As long as you are here
