Hey man, heard you were your brother’s keeper
That can’t be, judging by the way you treat her

Oh no, you’ve done it again
No use when you already know how it ends

Treat her better, boy
If having her at your side's something you enjoy
If having her in your life’s really so important to you now

Hey man, who’s been keeping brother
Hey man, how old is your mother

Oh no, you’ve done it again
No use when you already know how it ends

Treat her better, boy
If having her at your side's something you enjoy
If having her in your life’s really so important to you now [x2]

[Guitar solo]

Treat her better, boy
If having her at your side's something you enjoy
If having her in your life’s really so important to you now [x2]

    My OpinionWhen Mac was touring the festival circuit, he ended up hanging out with Kevin Parker and Kevin's gf Melody Prochet of Melody's Echo Chamber.

    Mac has a very big personality and is super funny. Kevin is a bit uptight and was getting annoyed by Mac getting a lot of attention, particularly from his girlfriend Melody.

    Anyway, Kevin sort of started being a dick, ignoring her, etc. being a little bitch. He ended up realizing it and came correct by apologizing and expressing his disappointment with himself. Everything is cool now.

    I just totally made all of that up that up, btw , but hell this "Type" is called "My Opinion", so I can put whatever I want here.

    It's actually about the time space aliens came down from UrAnus and opened a Jamaican Beef Pattie stand in Los Angeles. They were discovered to be aliens because everyone knows that Jamaicans fucking hate Los Angeles.

    General CommentYeah, this song's probably about treating your girlfriend better but...
    "Hey man, heard you were your brother’s keeper
    That can’t be, judging by the way you treat her"

    What if he's talking to a friend (let's call him Bob) and Bob acts like his brother's keeper (let's call his brother Gary). Bob is always up in Gary's shit, involved in his life, trying to take care of Gary by looking out for him by controlling his life. But Mac makes the point that there's no way Bob's really acting as Gary's keeper because Gary is transgender and wants to go by Gloria. If Bob was really Gloria's keeper he'd be looking out for Gloria for the woman she is, concerned with her needs. But instead he keeps insisting Gloria be GARY and be the man she was born as...
