You should be happy with what you got, You should be hard to be a brother, You should be happy with what we give you
Hand over my face. I am related to my enemy. My house on fire, And my big brother come put the blame on me.
He's a-pushin', I'm being pushed from above. Oh, and a brother, back to back to back, Better back off of him.
You should not question at all his authority
Use a flag as a bandage. Stick 'em up, show us your pocket hypocrisy. In the closet, my pleasures 'Cause my big brother don't want to just let me be
Oh, and I'm pushin', oh if I could get above, Oh, and a brother back to back back, Keep your back off. Oh, and I'm pushin', I'm being pushed from above. Oh, and a brother, back to back to back, Better back off of him
Face down, brother, Face down [Repeat: x3]
In my mind there's a clearing. Black clouds flow through gray still skies. And the birds don't even whisper. I'm flying out, I'm flying,
Back to back back, better back off, Back to back to back, a better, better, better, Back to back to back, back to back back, brother, Face down, brother, Face down, Face down, brother, Face down, almost, fired, Face down, I got a gun, Face down, I got a gun, I got a gun, Face down, I got a gun, Face down
Fuck it, I'm just gonna go home, turn on the fuckin' TV, Watch the nightly news and drink a beer, Like I could even change the world, yeah right
