"Life Of Brian"


[Verse 1:]
Yo
I got a friend with autism, taught me more about living
Than the system I was caught in
Stereotypes we fought them, just by the places I had brought him
The life of intolerance was shortened
I guess society had missed it when they counted out the citizens
They built a house of freedom but somehow couldn't fit 'em in
Yo, they're gonna let us in, our civil rights will get us in
'Cause selfishness is sickness and Brian's got the medicine
I think they need the Ritalin, America's forgot their friends
But no country is perfect, go and ask the veterans
And this is my sentiments exactly
You and the ignorance attacks you, it attacks me
Somebody asks me...

[Verse 2:]
Yo
Somebody ask me if I felt sorry for them
I said yes, but mostly 'cause he's dying of boredom
Before him lies a community doesn't speak for him
But they got a need for him like the season of autumn
There ought to be change
I'm speaking of the firing range
People hear the shot but I wonder can you feel the pain
Do you know his name? Well have you asked him?
Do you ever hear him talk when you walk past him?
Yeah, they say he's nonverbal, but tell me who is it
So many people say things that mean something different
Yo, it takes more than just a pair ears to listen
He's been here all these years, I wonder how you missed him
(The life of Brian)

[Hook:]
'Cause everywhere is looked at but hardly ever seen
If you only take a look back, you'll know just what I mean
The world slowly took back it's promise of a dream
Draw in the lines that we write between
'Cause everywhere is looked at but hardly ever seen
If you take a look back, you'll know just when I mean
The world slowly took back it's promise of a dream
Draw in the lines that we write between
(The life of Brian)
(Draw in the lines that we write between)

[Verse 3:]
I got a friend with autism taught me more about giving
Than what's written in those self-help books
The world can be a selfish crook
Stealing life from your time line
It helps me to think about how it's not mine
'Cause those who hold on to the light are only bound to lose it
So here's sound advice, others just the sound of music
An underground steward, but see there's more to it
Your God took the life of Brian and spoke through it
He broke through it, the crazy misconceptions
Challenging humanity's fear and their affection
The same lessons right here where we left them
Brian, he helped me find them, this time I won't forget them
I'm a let them know exactly what you stand for
We fighting in this foreign land for my man next door
Your love can bring a man to war without violence
And some of the greatest statements ever made were in silence
It's time to face the violins, play it loud
To lead the orchestra you gotta turn your back on the crowd
And that's more than just a corny phrase, don't fall for the worldly ways
Let the broken record play the message of the early days
You love you like I love me
The philosophy so simple yet it's still way above me
I'm hoping ya find something when the verse intercedes
This is written for the person in need, yo
The life of Brian

[Hook:]
'Cause everywhere is looked at but hardly ever seen
If you only take a look back, you'll know just what I mean
The world slowly took back it's promise of a dream
Draw in the lines that we write between
'Cause everywhere is looked at but hardly ever seen
If you take a look back, you'll know just when I mean
The world slowly took back it's promise of a dream
Draw in the lines that we write between, ha
Draw in the lines that we write between
Who draws the lines that we write between?
Draw in the lines that we write between
Who draws the lines that we write between?
The life of Brian...
