"About Mr. Brown" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge Richard On....
What can you say about tomorrow?
What do you know about my life?
What do you say to your daughter?
What do you tell to your wife?

Say Mr. Brown how about your daughter.
Do you know what she's done tonight?
And do you agree that we are lost here?
Well, among the lost we shall survive.

What's that you say when the rain won't go away?
What's that you do when no one's looking at you?
Where's that you go after the show?
What's that you say?

Say Mr. Brown how about this weather?
Is it gonna rain on our parade?
Is your soul as light as a feather?
Or am I flat out going insane?

Say Mr. Brown how about your brother.
Do you know what he's done with his life?
While you're chasing him out the front door,
He's chasing you with a butcher knife.

What's that you say when the rain won't go away?
What's that you do when no one's looking at you?
Where's that you go after the show?
What's that you say?

    General Commentok, try to follow me on this:
    'mr. brown' is just personification for the conservitive community.
    'what do you tell your daughter'-how do you explain our generation to your kids, even though they're already doing the opposite of what you want them to.
    the 'hows your brother' part-although you strive for perfection, you've made mistakes too.
    and 'how about this weather' is kind of like a big 'fuck you', because we can do it on our own('amongst the lost we shall survive')
    what can YOU say about MY life? (nothing, so don't try)is it going ot rain on my parade? (no) is YOUR sole light as a feather? (no) am i flat out going insane? (again, no)
    and finally. the 'what's that you say when the rain won't go away' part: what can you say to all of us when YOUR parade was rained on? and no one's paying attention to you anymore? what's that you say? (nothing)
    does that makes sense to you? well, it does to me, and that's all that matters.
    i'm sure i'll find some better way to type that up tomarrow...try to bear with it.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my father...like wheels said personification for the conservative community, except i think it is more of a "fuck you", or a "why don't you give it up/understand" to anyone who has tryed to control you in your life

    General CommentI think this song was written about one of the band's friends who passed away. Not sure on this one though but i think that may be what it said in the booklet for any time now

    General CommentShewy pretty much got it right- his name was Michael Brown and I think he died around 1997 or so. The conservative community interpritation is very nice, though.
