lyrics

Big Brother, Little Brother (Parts 1 and 2)

You promised we could stay forever in our land
It just meant nothing
You told us we would be all right greeting you with open hands
It just meant nothing
You said we could live here, it was always a lie
You told us you would help us, you were never going to try
It all meant nothing

You offered us your treasure, we said it wasn't right
It just meant nothing
You made us sign some papers that you made up in the night
It just meant nothing
You wiped out our traditions to always keep us weak
Fed us with your firewater and kicked us in the street
It just meant nothing

You moved us to another place, you said it was best
It was just a way to take our world, to make sure we had less
It was nothing, it was nothing, it was nothing
But now the world you made is falling by the way
Your greed and anger killing all the dreams you had to play
It all means nothing, nothing, it just means nothing

Your time is up, the wind has changed, your systems in the ditch,
Will put you in the grave, where will you turn to fix it,
When the rain turns to piss

Your time is up and the wind has changed, your systems in the ditch, will put you in the grave, where will you turn to fix it when the rain turns into piss.
