Biography

Brothers Grim is a local Raleigh, North Carolina underground rock band. Formed in 2000, Brothers Grim has played the local scenes of North Carolina and beyond, rambling through the dark alleys to play some of the same bars and music halls where the individual members came of age watching their heroes on stage. The band is a powerhouse five-piece ensemble, unrelenting with their live set, showcasing new songs, and rockin' out the occasional legacy cover tune. Currently the band is promoting their first record, the six song EP "Bury Me in the Swamp," available through the main "Website" link below courtesy of www.CDBaby.com/brothersgrim and at iTunes.

Lyrics

You're Killin' Me

Written By: (c)2003 Scarecrow Tracks Music BMI

I wrote a song called regret…
The tune I knew, words a-mess
I left one tear at the door,
It was followed by two more

I wrote a letter from the blue…
You wrote me back so untrue
Your husband said that it was me…
Black’s not white, but green is green

Can’t you see?
Can’t you see?
Can’t you see?
You’re killing me

I wrote a poem from the line…
It read of love but did not rhyme
I shied away from the stage
She read me like an open page

I wrote a check but it was blank…
I bought a boat before it sank…
I swam for shore by the moon…
I would drown by afternoon

Can’t you see?
Can’t you see?
Can’t you see?
You’re killing me

Don't Wait for Me

Written By: (c)2003 Scarecrow Tracks Music BMI

God takes lovers away from each other
Puts them in a box under lock and key
I’ve got a picture in a locket in my gunny pocket
That’s not how it’s supposed to be

Don’t wait for me
If I can’t find my way back home
Don’t wait for me
Lay your pretty head down and go to sleep

I saw my buddy fall in a Napalm bloody fog
Bullets bark around me like a dog
I knew him as a child… a time when we were wild
Angel take my friend away from me

Like a sickle thrashes wheat the bullet knocked me off my feet
I lay in the field and saw only sky
My beautiful young bride I took a bullet in my side
I’m afraid I’ll never come home again

Don’t wait for me
If I get lost along the way
Don’t wait for me
Lay your pretty head down and go to sleep

…I’ll never touch your lovely face again
…You touched my heart but it’s the end
