"Brother" as written by Michael Di Francesco, Antonio Chiappetta, Craig Newlyn, Bret Hunt and Darryl Beaton....
Once upon a time I knew everything
When I stop to think back on everything
It all runs away like a memory
Once there was a picture of a happy place

But I always keep thinking
What a great place to leave

I'd trade it all
To have you all here with me

Father when you coming back?
Mother leave the light on again.
Sister with someone somewhere somewhere
Brother Brother Brother

Trailer park heaven was a dream to me
Cause we had it figured out
Simple and not jaded
There was a promise of a brighter day
But soon it would all fade out

I'd trade it all
To have you all here with me

Father when you coming back?
Mother leave the light on again.
Sister with someone somewhere somewhere
Brother Brother Brother


When it's something we love that keeps us away,
Well it costs even more and its so much to pay.

I'd trade it all
To have you all here with me

Father when you coming back?
Mother leave the light on again.
Sister with someone somewhere somewhere
Brother Brother Brother

    General CommentI f*cking love this song! I don't know about any of you, but I hear a definate Sevendust influence (probably because this is where Clint disappeared to). I think this song stands for nostalgia, for wanting to go back to a time when things were simpler and choices were less painful. Back when things still made sense.

    General CommentThis is an awesome song! you can just feel the energy in it. I think it is about how "something we love" (music) is keeping him away from his family. He'd "I'd trade it all to have you all here with me". Before he thought his home was always a great place to leave but now he realizes it wasn't so bad and he misses it.

    General CommentThis song is great. I got to see DND a couple of weeks ago and they put on an AWESOME show. This song especially rocked. I got to meet the band after the show and they are the most down to earth people you'll ever meet. I was really surprised. As for the meaning of this song I think it's about turning away from your family.....like going away and then realizing what you left behind......."I'd trade it all...... To have you all here with me" pretty much sums up this song. I wish the best to DND and I know they're gonna be huge someday. This whole album rocks....i suggeset goin out and gettin it....

    General CommentIts about someone who a happy life for fame and fortune and they think that it will make their life all so much better. But it doesn't include their family and thats what the person needs.
