Killing Your Brother

You've got your finger on the trigger and if you stop to think bout who your killing,
(Do you) think that you’ll be better in the end?
You’re sweating and you’re scared and think that taking someone’s life would somehow
Justify the means to someone's end? 
But no, did you think that this might be someone’s brother,
Maybe someone’s kid or someone’s mother?

Hey! You're killing your brother!
Hey! You’re killing your brother!

Well, the politicians shake their heads while your history has been painted red.
They’ll nod and they’ll agree it’s just a shame.
Yeah, your gangland boss is getting rich, cause man you’re just his little bitch,
Believing that revenge is all it takes.
So no, don't go behind the smoke and body down, 
You will never, oh you'll never find your peace of mind.

Hey!  You’re Killing your Brother!!
Hey!  You’re Killing your Brother!!

I saw 8 year old Regina, on the 6 o’clock news
With the drive by, the cross fire and the funeral,
They're never gonna let you be.
Can you cease fire? Cease fire & break this chain?

I’ve had enough, I’ve had enough,
Have you had enough? Have you?

La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la
La la la la, la la la la
La la la la 

Life is sweet but bitterness is something that we all possess, 
It’s just one thing that makes us all the same.
It’s not about the government or someone’s view of God’s intent.  
Own this now, and you’ll own it till the end.
No, don’t tell me that this has to be,
Don’t let them lock away your destiny. 
Hey, You’re killing your brother!
Hey, You’re Killing your Brother!
Hey, You’re killing your brother!
