Gonna spend the night in mama's kitchen
Gonna spend the night with you
If someone wants to hurt you
I'm the one they must get through
Everybody needs a friend
And baby, I'm the last one that you have

You don't have to be a target
Everybody's gotta die
Brother, before you do
You're gonna know the reason why
Everybody needs a strong arm
And I got the strongest one around

Yeah, if you want to make it to the morning light
The goal is not to win, it's simply to survive
But you've got that target painted

My mouth don't work for talking
That's not the way I speak
Not saying I'm the strongest
Not calling you too weak
Right now you need a friend
And, brother, I'm the only one you have

And if you wanna make it to the morning light
The goal is not to win, it's simply to survive
But you've got that target painted
Oh, right between your eyes
So keep your head down and hide
I'm gonna keep you alive to see the morning light

There's nothing cruel about me
I'm gonna keep you clean
Don't care just how I do it
That's what a brother means
You've been down for me before
And I think I like you best left alive

And if you want to make it to the morning light
The goal is not to win, it's simply to survive
But you've got that target painted
Right between your eyes
So keep your head down and hide
I'm gonna keep you alive to see the morning light

I'm gonna take care of you
In a bad way, someone has to
You can't just walk around
With that target painted
Oh, right between your eyes
So keep your head down and hide
I'm gonna keep you alive to see the morning light

Life takin', widow makin' Max the Silent
Life takin', widow makin' Max the Silent
Life takin', widow makin' Max the Silent
Life takin', widow makin'

    Song MeaningThis song is about sticking up for a brother (or anyone in general) even when it's hard (even when they have a "target printed" on them).
