Brother Down

Verse 1

One life to live but we're doing it wrong, you see
Got my brother down cause it's nothing to me [Nothing to me]
Everyone's saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street [Get your life on easy street]

Verse 2

^[Someone else telling you what you're living for]
^[Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more]
^[The only sound you hear is a closing door]
^[Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war]

Verse 3

Rich man crying cause his money is time
Poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind [He knows he ain't blind]
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But I got eyes that can see through fantasy [I can see through fantasy]

Refrain

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Verse 4

Take it all back cause it don't mean nothing
« [Take it all back cause it don't mean nothing]
If you give it away and you're looking for something back [Looking for something back]
Wake up every morning when there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Verse 5

^[Someone else telling you what you're living for]
^[Been knocking you down now you're looking for more]
^[The only sound you hear is a closing door]
^[Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war]

Verse 6

One life to live but we're doing it wrong
« [One life to live but we're doing it wrong, you see]
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me [Nothing to me]
Rich man crying cause his money is time
Poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind

Refrain

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me ^[by]

Outro

[One life to live but we're doing it wrong, you see]
[One life to live but we're doing it wrong, you see]
[One life to live but we're doing it wrong, you see]
[One life to live but we're doing it wrong, you see]
