lyrics

Do you remember days of playground fields and childish joy?
The neighbours all would say, "Oh, what a happy little
Boy,
Boy”

When we saw your other side, the whole world started to mourn
you
That's just our nature, 'cause oh, how we adored you
We adored you,
So we mourn you

Brother, I'm afraid to go downstairs
Brother, I'm afraid to see what's down there
Brother, I'm a child but you know better
Brother, do you still remember?

You remind me of dandelions in the backyard
Sitting on the swing set, you broke my arm but I forgave
You,
I forgave you

You waste your life on second chances (and third, and fourth,
and fifth)
On keeping your eyes shut ('cause you're too scared to open
them)
Simple and meaningless romances (but nothing ever...)
Lasts, lasts

Brother, I'm afraid to go downstairs
Brother, I'm afraid to see what's down there
Brother, I'm a child but you know better
Brother, do you still remember?

It's all messed up and broken (just like it's always been)
All these feelings that beckon (this situation that we're in)
I feel washed up and used (you bloodsucker...)
You, you

Brother, I'm afraid to go downstairs
Brother, I'm afraid to see what's down there
Brother, I'm a child but you know better
Brother, do you still remember?
