Your brother’s on his own September 29, 2012

Posted by Ezra Resnick in Music.

My favorite song on Aimee Mann’s new album, Charmer, is the bonus track entitled “Brother’s Keeper”.

There’s not a man alive who could wake this sleeper
Oh, tie the rope, hide the dope, sure there’s hope, but denial’s cheaper

And when we’ve all collected a
spectacular sum
We’ll get a holy roller in
to rattle the drum

You can justify what happens then
‘Cause how could you have known
Leave the dust to dust and say amen
Put ‘sorry’ on the stone
You’re not your brother’s keeper now, your brother’s on his own
That’s how the seeds of avarice are sown…
