Dear Brother
I’m worried
I’ve never seen you act like
You wanna take your life
You’ve gotta think this over
‘Cause every time I try to plea
You just push me away
All you pain is killing me
But you’re so blind, you don’t see
Breakdown
You try to be something you’re not
Would someone please just make this stop
It doesn’t have to be this way
Would someone please just make this……
Dear mother
I’m sorry
I never thought he’d do it
He hadn’t known her long
He really took it too hard
Did anyone try to see
Why did I leave him alone
Nothing can change this now
If I could go back somehow
‘Cause you’re already gone
You thought that life was so long
I though you’d carry on
I thought that you would be strong, but you’re a victim
You can’t look me in the face
Another victim
That time will probably erase
You know I’ve eaten your lies
You know I’ve swallowed your pride
You know that you can’t disguise
You can’t look me in the eyes
And when I needed you
You could never be found
I tried to set you free
But you were dead to the sound and now
Dear father, in heaven
Please take him in your hands now
I know that he’s done wrong
I can’t believe that he’s gone
Why don’t you make this
So please just make this
Why don’t you make this
So please just make this STOP!

    General CommentI Don't mean 2 sound like an asshole but the song's called Brother. It is a killer song though. The cameo of Josey Scott of Saliva fit's perfectly in here.

    General CommentThe title of this song is actually "Brother" as metalhead m/ said.

    My interpretation:
    The singers brother has gone through a separation or rough time with a girl "He hadn’t known her long
    He really took it too hard" and starts to contemplate suicide as a way out. The singer tries to console him but is pushed away, causing a lot of pain for him to bare without realizing it "You just push me away
    All you pain is killing me
    But you’re so blind, you don’t see".

    He then addresses his mother, apologizing and regretting that he hadn't acted more efficiently, before addresses his Father in heaven, asking him to take him in his hands. Whether he is referring to his father or God I'm not sure.

    Josey Scott is awesome in this track, he really breaks it down.
