Brand New - Brother's Song Lyrics

So the air’s gettin’ colder And the news keeps us scared I still wrestle this summer From the bones of our tired, blistered hands ‘Cause tonight we got drinks With just a couple of friends And the girl that my brother likes is finally talkin’ to him And his chest is all swelled like he’s proud and happy Like he’s got a great idea Like he’s makin’ a memory

Wake up And come out to the car There’s an east swell comin’ And it’s howlin’ offshore And we’ll be Lyin’ like lions out in the sand But I’ll be dead before you put a gun in my brother’s hands

So we make jokes back home And we lighten the mood But growing up my parents saw What sending a kid to fight can really do And now with the war, I can tell they’re a little shook up ‘Cause just a few mothers’ sons will never really be enough Not till half of our names are etched out in the wall And the other half ruined from the things we saw

Wake up And come out to the car There’s an east swell comin’ And it’s howlin’ offshore And we’ll be Lyin’ like lions out in the sand But I’ll be dead before you put a gun in my brother’s hands

Wake up And come out to the car There’s an east swell comin’ And it’s howlin’ offshore And we’ll be Lyin’ like lions out in the sand But I’ll be dead before you put a gun in my brother’s hands
