"Christian Brothers (Elliott Smith cover)" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
No bad dream fucker's going to boss me around
Christian Brothers going to take him down
But it can't help me get over

Don't be cross, it's sick I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off

Fake concerns is what's the matter, man
And you think I'll to shake your motherfucking hand
But I know how much you care

Don't be cross, it's sick I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off
Come here by me, I want you here
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear

Don't be cross, it's sick I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off
Come here by me, I want you here
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear

    General CommentThey covered this song by elliot smith very well. I went into it thinking they would change it up a lot, but its pretty faithful, while still feeling like its josh's take on the song.
