An Ego Boost For Atlas

lyrics

My Brother, my Brother
How have you found time to prosper
When worlds depend upon your posture and your patience?
God willing, God willing
And depending on what you’re feeling
We’ll fasten this planet to the ceiling
So you can get some rest

My Brother, I’m sure you’ve heard them
Singing praises from your burden
Though you feel you don’t deserve them
Oh you have earned them
So Brother, don’t get lonesome
Your tears will salt our oceans
Sending tidal waves in motion
And trembling to our feet

My Brother, look at the seeds you’ve sewn
Your children have gone and grown
With whole solar systems in tow
‘Cause you’ve taught them hold their own

My Brother, I’m sure you hear
The warring nations in your ear
Though it’s war that brought you here
Don’t weep, my Brother
‘Cause by my own admission
We have yet to learn to listen
Though we yearn to speak of wisdom
How foolish to speak of less

My Brother, look at the seeds you’ve sewn
Your children have gone and grown
With whole solar systems in tow
‘Cause you’ve taught them hold their own

My Brother, I’m sure you hear
The warring nations in your ear
Thought it’s war that brought you here
Don’t weep, my Brother
