You should be happy with what you got,
You should be hard to be a brother,
You should be happy with what we give you

Hand over my face.
I am related to my enemy.
My house on fire,
And my big brother come put the blame on me.

He's a-pushin', I'm being pushed from above.
Oh, and a brother, back to back to back,
Better back off of him.

You should not question at all his authority

Use a flag as a bandage.
Stick 'em up, show us your pocket hypocrisy.
In the closet, my pleasures
'Cause my big brother don't want to just let me be

Oh, and I'm pushin', oh if I could get above,
Oh, and a brother back to back back,
Keep your back off.
Oh, and I'm pushin', I'm being pushed from above.
Oh, and a brother, back to back to back,
Better back off of him

Face down, brother,
Face down [Repeat: x3]

In my mind there's a clearing.
Black clouds flow through gray still skies.
And the birds don't even whisper.
I'm flying out, I'm flying,

Back to back back, better back off,
Back to back to back, a better, better, better,
Back to back to back, back to back back, brother,
Face down, brother,
Face down,
Face down, brother,
Face down, almost, fired,
Face down, I got a gun,
Face down,
I got a gun, I got a gun,
Face down, I got a gun,
Face down

Fuck it, I'm just gonna go home, turn on the fuckin' TV,
Watch the nightly news and drink a beer,
Like I could even change the world, yeah right
