  • We were like brothers
    Everybody said we looked the same
    You a little taller and broader and bolder
    We were afraid of your mother
    Hell, she used to hit you so hard
    And your dad took off when you were a baby
    And you still hate me for my dad stuck around
    You pinned me to the ground
    Eight years old with a replica gun
    Pushing in my skull saying
    You're gonna kill me if I tell
    Never did and I never will
    That house was living hell

    Come on

    I remember my mother
    When she found a new man
    And your mother thought she found a partner
    And father for you
    No wonder you can't stand me
    I can't stand me too
    I can't stand me too
    Oh, your godmother repaired the anger in me
    Spoke to me like I was an adult
    Didn't take sides and didn't turn me against my dad
    Then she took those pills and now she's gone

    See her in the night
    There in the corner of my eye
    And I see her in the night

    Heard you glassed a boy back in The Borders
    Some naughty family boys are after you
    You pinned me to the wall and said my mother
    Stole your inheritance from you
    Oh yeah?
    We ain't got a penny between us
    Holding up this tin that we live in
    You pinned me to the wall and smashed a bottle
    Your eyes, the door to hell and all within
