Brothers Born

Our mother tried her best to raise us true
Our father split and all he left were shoes and some excuse:
“I’m hitting the road with Lady Loose.” 

So we played with rattler’s nests instead of cards
Cause the Devil’s picture book was in our hearts
We played the part, of the Joker and all the trouble that he starts. 

Our enemies are deep down in the snow.
So no one can know, how many lives we stole.
These ropes are thick as thieves around our throats
Sworn as brothers born, and as brothers we will go. 

And looks like all these notes we hit were wrong
Maybe one day we will finally sing along
We’re not countin’ on, one blink and all the time we had is gone. 

We wanted all the glory not the pause
We cut off all the fingers that were crossed and took what we took
And if they fought us then we’d hang em’ on a hook. 

Looks like these heads, are gonna roll.

Our enemies are deep down in the snow.
So no one can know, how many lives we stole.
These ropes are thick as thieves around our throats
Sworn as brothers born, and as brothers we will go. 
(As the light fades from our eyes the wind will blow)
