Even You Brutus? Lyrics

Play "Even You Brutus?"
on Amazon Music

God is good and fate is great,
When it feels so strong it's hard to wait.
You never know how it might unfold,
Hearts to break and bodies to hold.
Time will tell but it never gets old.
Like I told you I'm in for a long long.

Had to have...

    He's thanking god for this life and for fate when it comes to love, he's had many relationships, but he's in it for the long term.
    He's seen an extremly hot girl across the room,drinking alcohol(not tea),meaning she should be of age,but she's obviously alot younger.
    She's with another guy, but the feeling he's having is so rare,so he cant help himself and wants to go upto her.
    His friends warn him,"You shouldn't make it with a younger girl" and
    Too many chances for the foot to drop....a medical term meaning a longer foot than the other which makes you trip up...(in a relationship)
    But he doesnt care, cos she's the one.( I tried to tell 'em that I found a pearl)
    They were both high when they met and on the same wavelength and felt the same towards eachother(Had to have been one of those things That took place in outer-space,A match made in heaven)
    He falls in love with her, yet tells "sister brutus" using the definition on sister being"simular to" Brutus(who we all know) the big slow and stupid part of his mind that got him into this type of relationship in the first place.. that "I got a mess of a better half and I got a mess of a better hell (a bad relationship with a messy girl, but he loves her)
    Then he tells sister (being simular to) judas (someone thats meant to be a friend but betrays) which is that part of him that usually ruins his own relationships.......that he didnt help him get out of this relationship when he probably should have,or before he fell inlove with her. (didnt have his back this time)And he's obviously arguing this situation to himself all through this track & throughout the relationship.
    She's cheated on him, and he wonders if its his fault,"Well, I guess I never told you some things,That I really, really wanted to say and Did I do everything I could do,
    or did the mice just need to play?"(or did she just want to have sex with other guys)
    I'm not trying to point fingers at you
    Well, I'm not trying to lay any blame
    But when it comes to the punishment
    Girl, you know how to bring the pain
    Like I told you, I'd do it all again
    Obviously he's hurting really bad and the relationship was a mess, but even tho he tells his"brutus" she had extreme rage in her anger toward him during the relationship (This is to Brutus,There's a fury to the woman's wrath)
    That he still loves her and he would do it all again.

    An epic tale of love and betrayal mixed with some funky beats, makes for one bad-ass track!!!!!
    Gotta love the peppers.
    Peace, Chris
