"Brother" as written by and Milton Silva Campos Do Nascimento....
Me, and my Brother hiking
Me, and my Brother might find a turtle
We'll just have some fun

Me, and my Brother playing with our dog
Two mighty men with a wolf
Who drinks from the gulf

Cool, calm water will bring back our voice to Mother

I fell down in a creek bed
Brother wept
In his face I met fear
That I could die right there
But I climbed right out

Now I've grown bold, and lonely
I should have stayed with dear Brother at home
But we grew up old

    General CommentThis is a great song, very Arcade Fire-ish. And that's a very, very good thing. It's a shame that so few people have heard of these guys, they're really doing a great job.

    General CommentThe right lyrics are below:

    Me, and my Brother hiking.
    Me, and my Brother might find a turtle.
    We'll just have some fun.

    Me, and my Brother playing with our dog;
    two mighty men with a wolf,
    who drinks from the gulf.

    Cool, calm water will bring back our voice to Mother.

    I fell down in a creek bed.
    Brother wept.
    In his face I met fear;
    that I could die right there.
    But I climbed right out.

    Now I've grown bold, and lonely.
    I should have stayed with dear Brother at home,
    But we grew up old.
