I've fallen asleep with my head in my hands
And prayed to god for a change
A change I've forgotten
A change I could make on my own
But I'll pray anyway

I said to my brother
"Don't let them get in your way"
He replied he's a bigger man today
But once he sucked in his pride
I heard the guillotine say
"This boy will be mine someday"

The games he had thought up
The tricks he had played
The bed to of which he'd so often been chained
When they slit his throat
I swear I heard someone say
"This boy just got his today"

My brother he never cried
It's a decision he made
His tears would never see the light of day
Once the sun struck his face like her hand had that way
He couldn't help but to give in and say
"Mercy, have mercy decisions I've made
To be sorry for this life I've so carelessly played
If you let me than I think that I could be save
I could be big someday"

I've fallen asleep with my head on my knees
It's not the first time I've fallen that way
But once they gave me this life
A life they could and would take
They said
"This boy will be big someday and he might fight back
He might fight back til the sun falls and the sky will turn black
He'll fight back, He'll fight back
This boy will big someday
This boy will get his someday"
