Love the Cold Like A Brother

Love the Cold Like A Brother, from 2015's Halfway LP

This song is for all the only children out there. I had a loose idea for a song like this bouncing around in my head for a little while. Then Black-Tokyo sent me this beat with a message sort of like “you have to use this one, it’s tailor made for your style”. He never usually pushes one beat over another, so I took it pretty seriously. It became one of the first songs I wrote for “Halfway” and helped steer the direction for the sound of the record.

Why do the adults kill the children?

Childlike versions of themselves that is

The Biz beaten by nobody, conversion almost fully

Remaining left declared hippies

Freethinkers and troublemakers memorialized in ink for life saving entertainment

But still hated for payment

Dig ditches you black sheep

Quick fixes you lacking

Stick figures we backing

Mis-decisions get packing

Shoulda, coulda, woulda attacking

They coming at me

All together, then all alone, all of the sudden the heart's rushing

Rethink your life path while avoiding assumption

Show the gumption to do something

Or at least maintain your functions

And if you can't find your father or mother

Then reach out and Love the Cold Like a Brother

Love the Cold Like a Brother

When the heat's on there's no other

Don't let the warmth smother

Keep it cool or we'll lose one another

Lose one another, lose one another

(2x)

 

Love the Cold Like a Brother

When the heat's on there's no other

Don't let the warmth smother

Keep it cool or we'll lose one another

Lose one another, lose one another

(2x)

Never been a best man, never been a Godfather

The vivid get silent, grow solemn

My kinship with man is only in my talent

Blessed with gifts that add value

But that well is shallow and the bottom's frozen

Bells ring hollow, but exhault emotion

From the surface of the moon, to the deepest ocean

It's like the biggest window closing

Clothes drawers, the clothes folded

No search party for the lost sock, abhor shock and take stock

Bonds broken like minerals

When nobody's that much into you

Peep the visual?  You know I see it too

Love the Cold Like a Brother, through and through

Love the Cold Like a Brother

When the heat's on there's no other

Don't let the warmth smother

Keep it cool or we'll lose one another

Lose one another, lose one another

(2x)

In all my years, I never have been named anyone’s best man and have never been anyone’s Godfather, that’s a true statement. This song, at it’s core, is about finding strength within yourself because the less you rely on other people, the better a person you can be to them and for yourself. The second verse also gets into applying this in music as well.
