oh brother
i don't know what to say
should i even bother?
your mind is made up anyway.
oh brother
i don't know what's become of you
you follow after
enraptured by the piper's tune

i'd write you off if we were not connected by this blood
as it is, how can we talk if the phone lines have been cut
and all the windows have been shut?

oh brother
i know you're desperate to belong to something other
to define yourself through joining clubs
oh brother
the price of membership has been yourself
when you speak,
somebody reaches through your guts to work your mouth

some say god when they mean america
some say courage when they mean hysteria
some say strength while they cave to terror
some say bootstraps while they're mostly carried
some believe they're smart just because they declare it,
building nests of pleasant lies woven together
so the painful truths can never break the barrier
until the old aren't wise and the young don't care enough
and all my life i have been oblivious
do you think you could be too?

but you're so vain
you'd never know this song is about you
you're not that selfaware
to pick yourself out of a lineup if someone described you
living the biopic in your head
dropping status updates so puffy and seethrough
like an actor out of work drops names
they ring the bell and you salivate on cue
collect the full barbie playset

oh brother
pot and kettle, i know i'm just the same
i'm supposed to love you
sometimes i'd rather punch you in the face
oh brother
i wouldn't care
if i didn't think you knew so much better
turn off the teleprompter and just be you
