(just a reflection on a brother & me)

damn bro
let it go
hell, who's
to know
right or wrong
sometimes the same song
get's sung
where the hell
do we belong
no one can tell

you & me
are water & oil
can't you see
that water does boil
and oil just burns
flames in the air
but, hopefully, we learns
to be there
for each other
you still be my brother

hell you & i
ain't nuthin' alike
and our brother mike
none of us are the same
tho we got the same last name
we each be
an us
a we
all on the same damn bus

headed for heavin' or hell
no way to tell
no way to say
let it go
let it flow
in life's time
hell, bro
find your rhyme

you be so stressed out
tryin' to run all about
just ta' find out
you ain't me
and i ain't you
so, bro,
let it go
stand at ease

you be the big 'un
the big gun
the oldest one
but, shit
here's a true
to you...
do what you do
i do too
thank you

don't expect
just respect
who i am
i'll do the same
hell we all play the same game
tryin' ta' live
tryin' ta' give
knowin' we gonna' die
but we try
ain't no lie
we all gonna' die

can't say i love you
that wouldn't be true
can't say i respect you
that lie i won't do
but you be you
and me be
can't ya' see

too many expectations
always qualify
for an exception
with who you are
least go that far
i have, i do
what about you?

so let go
learn to know
your limitations
and your imatations
the, the, the
too many expectations
