we could be from the same mother
you know maybe we are brothers
i don't think that he said anything although it was obviously said
and strongly and wise

god the strength you have
you know i always watch you anticipate you
we're the same when it gets down to it
though i'm not sure what it is
we're the same when it gets down to it
respect is more than envy
respect is more than jealousy
its respect
i respect you

the mirror

strength you have
strength you have
strength comes with knowledge

we could be from the same mother
you know maybe we are brothers
i don't think that he said anything although it was obviously said
and strongly
and wisely

we could be from the same mother
we are brothers
we are brothers
strong
and wise.

what do you want me
to do
i wish i could feel the cut of the glass
salt in my veins
just like you
we're called brothers and were more than that
we're enemies
and i hate you
we're enemies
and i hate you
we're one and the same and i hate you
because we're
one and the same

    General CommentOf course, the insert will just have weird xerox artwork instead of lyrics.

    General CommentThe CD doesn't have any lyrics in them. It's only a front and a back, with the names of the band members, and you're right..some artwork.

    General Commentyea it looks xeroxed or something.

    wonder why the lyrics arent packaged with the album any more.

    General Commenti really think it is guard the strength you have, not god the strength you have(though im probably wrong), i really think this is about himself(self hate) or at least thats how ive always taken it

    General CommentI get the idea that he's talking about another guy who "got the girl" instead of him (thus the lines about envy and jealousy), yet he realizes the guy is just like himself. He hates him for doing what he would have done himself.
