Brother Down

Sam Roberts - Brother Down

Take It all back ‘cause it don’t mean nothing
If you give it away and you’re looking for something back
Wake up every morning and there’s nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

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

One life to live but we're doing it wrong you see
Got my brother down cause its nothing to me
Rich man crying crying cause his money is time
Poor man smiling cause he knows he ain't blind

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

One life to live but we’re doing it wrong you see

Oh my. A bit of a cry was a good way for me to end this day. Thanks for posting this Jer.

Thanks for the note, Marj.

I'm closing comments on this one for now. Sorry, I didn't mean to make it a cryptic riddle for people to figure out. We're going through some stuff with our extended family and I wanted to keep this as a placeholder. It's too weird to have nothing recorded about something with huge impact, but this isn't the forum to dig into the details.
