Once I had a brother
And we grew up
Looking out for each other
And when he fucked up
I did my best to cover his lies

I hid him from the cops
When he was a runaway
Put him up when he was on the streets
With no place to stay
And when he lied and stole
I looked the other way

'Cause in time
I knew he would find a way
To get his life together
And we would be alright
If we just stuck together
And somehow we would
Both make it through
Somehow we would make it through

Maybe I tried too hard
To be a brother
There comes a time
You gotta burn your bridges
To discover what you are inside

I thought I knew my brother
But I was wrong
Maybe I'd been lying to myself all along
When he burned his bridges
He burned me at the same time

Well brother, brother
How could you be so hateful
So ungrateful
After all that we'd been through
Someday you'll get what's coming to you
Someday you'll get what's coming to you

You stole my money, then my friends
And now my girlfriend too
You say you treat everyone like a brother
And it's true 'cause you screw over everyone
The way that you screwed me

You're a tumor, a leech
A sore that won't go away
Leaving a path of discarded people in your wake
You're a thief, a thief who stole my trust
And that's the worst thing you could take

But every underdog must have his day
So you'd better stay the hell out of my way
'Cause this dog's day is coming soon
And this dog won't let bad feelings pass
This dog wants grudges to last
'Cause this dog won't forget how he was done in

Well, you selfish little motherfucker
I hope I never live to see you hurt another
'Cause life you touch is life you smother
Like mine
