Brother do you believe in an afterlife?
Where our souls will both collide
In some great Elysium
Way up in the sky
Free from our shackles, our chains
Our mouths, our brains
We'll open all the gates
And we will walk careless
Straight into the light

I've never felt so enlightened
With every page I turn
I only find myself feeling more alone
Posing questions to a silent universe
My very thoughts a curse
They just seem to multiply
Forever in my mind

Brother don't grow up
Brother please never grow up

Just hold out against the night
And guard your hope with your life
For the darkness, she will come
Oh and you will have nowhere left to run

Oh but your arms are wider than mine
And help me to sleep
I just hope that age does not erase
All that you see
Don't let bitterness become you
Your only hopes are all within you

Hold out against the night
Guard your hope with your life
