Oh brother, Oh brother
You and I are not the same
True we share a common bloodline
We carry different pains
You've been tested, you've been shaken
and still you soldier through
When the world looks down their noses
I'll find a way to look up to you

Oh Sister, oh sister
there's more to life than hate
those you say are out to get you
only long for your embrace
It would seem you're out for blood and
burning bridges along the way
I'm still trying to forgive you
But i haven't found the strength

Oh why can't I reach
out to everyone around me

Oh mother, oh father
who held me when i cried
though now I feel full grown
sometimes i still want to be your child
words are said in anger
gestures are made in love
no matter what may happen
I'll never forget where I came from

In the dead of night
I'm wide awake and more or less sober
I'm cold,
I'm alone,
Just waiting for tomorrow.
