Slow Down, Brother

Well, you’re down on your luck and too proud to show it
Stubborn as the little boy you’ve never left behind
Slow down, brother, slow down

You’re draining my patience and too high to know it
Using up my money upon losing your mind
I said slow down, brother, slow down

And when the party’s over, it’s only just begun
You’re lighting up another one

Put on the brakes and
Slow down, brother, slow down
For heaven’s sakes
Slow down, brother, slow down.

You think your life’s a stage show and you think you’re Oscar Wilde
Every day a fanfare and everyone a fan
Slow down, brother, slow down

You glide along the pavement like some kind of holy child
Preaching in a rhetoric that no one understands
I said slow down, brother, slow down

You’re living for the moment, when the moment’s long gone past
How long are you gonna last?

Put on the brakes and
Slow down, brother, slow down
For heaven’s sakes…

Nothing in your room but lead
A rusty old four-poster bed
A painting of the young brunette
You left behind

Nothing in your eyes but need
Nothing but a soul to feed
Nothing left to do for me
But count the time

Put on the brakes and
Slow down, brother, slow down
For heaven’s sakes
Slow down, brother, slow down.
Put on the brakes and
Slow down, brother, slow down
For heaven’s sakes
Slow down, brother…

Slow down.
