Call Them Brothers (with Only Son/Jack Dishel)

Recommended Posts

Pretty darn close. Good job people. I have it from a very reliable source that these are the finished set of 100% right-o words:

That’s it, it’s split - it won’t recover

Just frame the halves and call them brothers

Find your fathers and your mothers

If you remember who they are

Over and over they call us their friends

Can’t we find something else to pretend?

Like nobody won and we’re safe at the end

In the darkness the film machine’s spinning

So let’s leave it on

We’ll be out in the street

before anyone knows that we’re gone

That’s it, it’s split, it can’t recover

Just frame the halves and call them a whole

And chip at the bricks and fill up your pockets

With the pieces of wall that you stole

The hunt is on, everyone’s chasing

Everyone’s chasing a shot

A shot rings out, nobody wants it

Nobody wants it to stop

That’s it, it’s split, it can’t recover

Just frame the halves and call them brothers

Find your fathers and your mothers

If you remember who they are

If you remember, if you remember,

if you remember who they are

Apparently reg departed from the text at the beginning...but we didn't know Smiler

Any guesses as to meaning? I was sort of thinking about the fall of the Berlin Wall. I think it makes sense, what with the 10th anniversary of the fall this past November.

^i think i mentioned it in some other thread, but the Berlin Wall was my first thought too. Though "wall" doesn't have to be literal, and the song could really refer any long standing conflict/divided people.

E, B, D#, G#m

(That's it it's split it won't recover)

C#m, B, D#, G#m

(Just frame the halves, and call them brothers)

etc.

All the parts that are slightly different are just variations of those 5 chords.
