Lyrics

Two Brothers

(Neil Wise)

 

Left to die, somehow saved by fate

A she-wolf cried, "It's not too late"

 

Raised in love, but no blood to tie, no cross to hold against the sky

Followers rode from far & wide,  

Watch the flames ignite the pale moonlight

 

Talking in tongues, like a strange stereo

Fight like dogs then laughing so

 

Mothers stay home, they still bleed, hearing their son's dying deed

Brothers in arms across the sea, brothers in blood, you & me

 

Two hearts, two souls, a force of one that the gods extol

Two hearts, two souls, two brothers

 

Life rolls on, some people change

When power is king & trust's betrayed

 

One step over, the other's side, another woman's love, hard to hide

A knife is cold, in the heart, and from the back the most painful arc

 

Two hearts, two souls, a force of one that the gods extol

Two hearts, two souls, two brothers,

 

Left to die, somehow saved by fate

A she-wolf cried, "It's not too late"

 

Two hearts, two souls, a force of one that the gods extolled

Two hearts, two souls, two brothers, two brothers

Two hearts, two souls, a force of one that the gods extolled

Two hearts, two souls, Two brothers,
