I feel the pain too brother In my bones, I feel it as you fall Lash for lash and scar for scar My head smashes down the stone steps Crash for crash and drop of blood for drop of blood
But what runs between us, brother Is more than those red splatters on the filthy ground For you, time and time again Have proved water is in fact thicker than blood And bonds chosen closer than those of flesh
Water carries your pain to me, brother Lost joy from palaces of princesses And despair from dungeons of ****** New scars from those thought to be friends And wounds from laughter of enemies
I hope when we and not just you brother, bear the load Your bleeding stops a little sooner Water cleaning and cleansing the wounds I hope weight shouldered together Will fight back stronger against all that is destroying you
And we, lash for lash and blow for blow Will fall twice on the murderous brows against you Bound by water, our mighty weapon For when you fall, we fall together Because you've taught me brother when I fall, you will too.
