My brother died today,
Just closed his eyes and slipped away.
Nothing's changed, the sun still shines
The moon and stars can still align.
The mountains are there, around the town
The ocean sighs the same old sound.
The freeways hum, the gardener mows
The people shop, the wind still blows.
The roses bloom, the tulips do, too.
The pansies dance in red and blue.
The grass is green, the sidewalks white
The day is over, chased by night.
Nothing has changed, it's all the same.
Like God is playing some odd game.
Everything's changed in a strange new way;
My brother died today.
