"Brother My Brother" as written by and Eliot Walker/roth Sloan....
Brother, my brother
Tell me, what are we fighting for?
We've got to end this war
We should love one another
Oh, can't we just pretend
This war never began?
We can try
Brother, my brother

We face each other from diff'rent sides
The anger burns; can't remember why
It's kind of crazy to cause such pain
Our foolish pride makes us hate this way
We watch our world fall apart
Tell me, what good is winning when you lose your heart?

Brother, my brother
Tell me, what are we fighting for?
Isn't life worth so much more?
We should love one another
Oh, can't we just pretend
This war never began?
Tell me why
Brother, my brother
We can try
Brother, my brother

Let's take a moment and look deep inside
And say we're willing to give love a try
We're not as diff'rent as we seem to be
There's so much more to me than what you see
We don't have to be this way
Think about the consequences, then turn around and walk away

    General Commentwow, i can't believe im the 1st to comment on this song. I really really like this song, I think everyone that hates people for anyreason should listien to this. Mostly for rascists and such. It really is telling the truth that we can fight but why are we fighting? Do we really need to fight? We should all just stop before we hurt someone physically or verbaly and maybe we aren't that different after all. May the saddest of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.

    General Commentok so this song was on pokemon its a great song!! this song should be heard throughout the world, it makes sense and more people should realise just how bad things get in war and for no real reason, money, beliefs, who cares if someone disagrees about god, its their own choice life is life, it doesnt matter what you have faith in just that you have faith!!! love each other people its not worth wasting such a life that could be filled with love, why be remembered for killing millions of people when you could be remembered for saving their lives?

    General CommentSo sad, such a grand song... ~stupid pokemon had to take it... though it DID fit the scene very nicely i must admit~ but yet so few reviews...
    I call this my Hippie song because its saying 'Dont be hating, dont fight, cant we all just get along?' :)
    This is about alot of things like Wars, ~stupid IRAQ WAR for example~
    Ok, so what, the Iraqi's had a ruthless leader, but in the middle east you HAVE to be ruthless to survive. It's survival of the fittest over there. We don't like that so what do we do? change em. CANT CHANGE EM VIA WAR ~stupid bush -.-~
    This song shows we shouldn't do that... ~is attempting to download it but cant find it~ NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
