Even You Brutus?

Album: I'm With You (2011)
  • God is good and fate is great
    When it feels so strong it's hard to wait
    You never know how it might unfold
    Hearts to break and bodies to hold
    Time will tell but it never gets old
    Like I told you I'm in for the long long

    Had to of been one of those things that took place in outer space
    A match made in heaven, not a scratch on her face
    Angels must have smoked some dust
    Singing songs about "In God We Trust"
    Something slide, but this is a must
    Like I told you there's a time for finding out

    People try to tell me what not to do
    You shouldn't make it with a younger girl and
    Too many chances for the foot to drop,
    I tried to tell 'em that I found a pearl, well
    Like I told you be careful what you're asking for

    This is to Brutus
    Gotta mess of a better hell, ow
    This is to Judas
    Even you never had my back

    She was the cutest thing that I ever did see
    A drink in her hand and I don't mean tea
    She was with a dude, but I just didn't care
    I had to find out, these moments are rare
    And Stevie says, "All is fair"
    Like I told you there is something for everyone

    Well, I guess I never told you some things
    That I really, really wanted to say
    Did I do everything I could do,
    Or did the mice just need to play?
    Like I told you there's more than meets the eye

    This is to Brutus
    Gotta mess of a better hell, ow
    I said this is to Judas
    Even you never had my back

    I'm not trying to point fingers at you
    And I'm not trying to lay any blame
    But when it comes to the punishment
    Girl you know how to bring the pain
    Like I told you I'd do it all again

    This is to Brutus
    I gotta mess of a better hell, ow
    I said this is to Judas
    Even you never had my back

    Come on
    This is to Brutus
    There's a jury to the woman's lap, ow
    This is to Judas
    Even you never had my back Writer/s: MICHAEL BALZARY, ANTHONY KIEDIS, JOSH ADAM KLINGHOFFER, CHAD SMITH
