lyrics

Face it brother we are losing
Losing ground in this big fight
Send our letters back to Momma
Tell her to keep her spirits bright
Lord, oh Lord I am so sleepy
It’s so damn cold here on the wire
I can’t keep from closing
Closing these war-torn hazel eyes

I have seen the outside
I have seen the birth of my child
I have witnessed the birth of the rebellion
I’ve seen distant stars expire in the sky
But I do not want to dream
These things that I dream
But Brother, Brother
How do you refuse the night when it comes?
How do you refuse the night when it comes?

Brother, I don’t think my heart is beating
I think it stopped sometime when we arrived
They made me fit, so I could stand up tall
But here on the streets all we do is dive
And Lord, oh Lord, I think I’m swimming
In a cloud of sound no one could ever buy
This granite wall doesn’t have any comfort
And we do not know the reason why we die, we die

I have seen the outside
I have seen the birth of my child
I have witnessed the birth of the rebellion
I’ve seen distant stars expire in the sky
But I do not want to dream
These things that I dream
But Brother, Brother
How do you refuse the night when it comes?
How do you refuse the night when it comes?
How do you refuse the night when it comes?
How do you refuse the night when it comes?

I swear, I will never leave you again
