lyrics

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother

She seemed an object to you
Something tragic you had to save
Objectification always was your stronger suit
The Emperor's new close shave

You dressed her down and felt down righteous
You are a fucking clown
Playing God in your clan man cave
You don't need me hanging around,
You're so brave

You never go quiet into the night, brother
Mm hm?
We always fight, brother
And why is that?

You say I never go quiet
while you're standing here hollering
You got a lot of opinions
and I'm supposed to be tolerant

How can I take serious
this hogwash you told me
like I don't know what love is,
And I want you to show me?

(YES)

Foreign concept, it comes off like boring nonsense and
I can't help you piss me off
like you're incontinent

I thought we had a common sense
of what our quandary is
Are you Barrabas or Pontius?
Problems? I got a laundry list!

You never go quiet into the night, brother
Mm hm?
We always fight, brother
Yeah, and why's that?

You never go quiet into the night, brother
Mm hm?
We always fight, brother
And why's that?

I am superficially like you
Yes I am also full of rage
I don't need to dig for clues
Secrets you take to your grave,
How badly you behave

The difference may seem like splitting hairs
But you're so loud and proud and crass
You preach the word, your worldly cares
There's no pulpit left, alas,
There's no weight or Mass

You never go quiet into the night, brother
Mm hm?
We always fight, brother
And why's that?

I am fundamentally like you,
Yes I also feel betrayed
Don't look at me like I'm Mister
Nah, that's my father's name

And if it's all the same
I'd rather know the ledge than shoulder blame
We're soldiers, Zeb, we're both the same
Just look at all we overcame!

The overhead is heavy looming over us
And when there was a
Gold rush,
I could have spoken up
But I was so humane
So, what?

You got it off your chest?
Your unstable refrain?
Refrain from re-framing these games,
Like we were Abel and Cain, C'mon

We were opposite ends of the stage
I took your orders 'cause I wanted to be saved
Objectification always was your stronger suit
The Emperor's new close shave

She seemed an object to you
A lifeless prop to attach me to
Why can't I push through
And bring myself to hate you?

You never go quiet into the night, brother
We always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we will always fight, brother

You never go quiet into the night, brother
we always fight, brother
