don't you recall? your temper in the fall
& the lyrics you infer, well your brother won't concur
don't you recall? [instr. chorus]
stuck behind the cymbals where
you draw the line & disappear
for hours at a time / you rise & i'll decline
for now it seems the ends will
justify the means & you don't trust
the fact we both belong
& i will prove you wrong...oh

[chorus]
the rivalry's alight
& blood is on both sides
each song a civil war
each wave erodes the shore


pent up & analyzed for centuries it's no surprise
you've changed the middle eight
inciting the debate...oh

[ch]
the rivalry's alight / & blood is on both sides
each song a civil war / each arrow you ignore
still up & takes its toll / those fires burning old
under the old barrage
brothers in the garage

[outro]
