"My Brother Paul"

MY BROTHER PAUL Lyrics by The Residents
I still remember that day in December

When you pretended to fall on the stairs
You said you were scared that the top of your head

Was open and bared itself to the air

I can cry

If I try

But I lie

Awake at night
You said that you tripped on a box that he shipped

Before he committed himself to the war

I was at work and believed you were hurt

'til I saw that dirt from a hole in the yard

I was still crying and you were still lying

The following morning out there in the hall
Where it was painful to watch you arrange

Those portraits you painted of my brother Paul

I can't believe that

I was deceived that

Day we received that

Present from Paul
