"For A Brother" as written by Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, David G Kushner, Scott Richard Weiland and Mathew William Sorum....
Can't rise from the bottom
Time flies when ya got it
Your time has receded
Could, should have been, and didn't

I've given up my hand for a brother
I've given up a hand for free
I've risen and forgiven, and I've pardoned
But you set yourself free

Nose dive crash to the bottom
Angel, your wing was always broken
Fought for rights of the prophets
Not for the spirit of your daughters
I did it...


Walk slowly
Seems like time stopped
Seems like I'm slow dancing
But I'm flying
Where do I go?
The home I know is closed
I'm free
Free, yeah
I'm free
Free, yeah
Free, free, yeah


Bitten off my hand for the stuff, and
Livin' off the shit you steal
You perished for religious and forgotten
Daughters that you couldn't see

Given up my hand
You set yourself free
Given up a hand for free
Given up my hand
You set yourself free
But you set yourself free

    General CommentBoth Scott and Matt had brothers who died of drug overdoses during the making of Libertad. The line "but you set yourself free" is saying that now they're free from the drugs. It all goes back to the title Libertad, which echos in almost every song on the album.
