"Brother James" as written by Robert Bert, Kim A. Godron, Thurston J. Moore and Lee M. Ranaldo....
Take my hand he said to me
Follow now or you'll be damned
Let's go to the other side
Let's go to the other side

Great Father, give me the keys
Great Father, give me the keys

Brother James gave them to me
Brother James gave them to me

I don't need 'em anymore
Someone knockin' at my door
I don't need 'em anymore
Someone knockin' at my door

Take my hand you might as well
We're going straight to hell
I don't want to hang around
Watch 'em stick your head in the ground

    Take my hand he said to me
    follow now or you'll be damned
    let's go to the other side
    let's go to the other side

    Great Father, give me the keys
    Great Father, give me the keys

    Brother James gave them to me
    Brother James gave them to me

    I don't need 'em anymore
    someone knockin' at my door
    I don't need 'em anymore
    someone knockin' at my door

    take my hand you might as well
    we're going straight to hell
    I don't wanna hang around
    watch 'em stick your head in the ground

    General CommentI would say religious zealots. They say that if you don't join their church, that you are definitely going to hell.

    "Watch 'em stick your head in the ground" means that they will "ground" you and brainwash you using threats of hell.
