Brother
Matt Corby Lyrics


Ooh ooh ooh oh
Ooh ooh ooh

Sleep now under my skin
Make sure you'll try to
Conjure the wind
And ease my mind

Ooh ooh ooh oh
Ooh ooh ooh

Somebody call out to your brother
He's calling out your name
Oh oh oh
Hiding under the covers
With no one else to blame
Oh oh oh
You couldn't help out your own neighbor
You couldn't tell it to his face
You were fucked up by the blame

You cower in the corner
Confide in your father
Let it out and say
Let it pass away

Sleep now under my skin
Make sure you try to
Conjure the wind
And ease my mind

And I said
Ooh ooh ooh oh
Ooh ooh ooh

Somebody call out to your brother
He's calling out your name
Oh oh oh
Hiding under the covers
With no one else to blame
Oh oh oh
You couldn't help out your own neighbor
You couldn't tell it to his face
You were fucked up by the blame

You cower in the corner
Confide in your father
Let it out and say

You cower in the corner
Confide in your father
Let it break your day
Let it out and say

Wait there
Pull yourself out of this state dear
Acknowledge you were a fake here
From there on you might just grow
Oh oh oh

Somebody call out to your brother
He's calling out your name
Oh oh oh
Hiding under the covers
With no one else to blame
Oh oh oh
Oh, you couldn't help out your own neighbor
You couldn't tell it to his face
You were fucked up by the blame

This song came out when I was in year 7. I was trying my best at school and in general to be a good person.
Hearing this song takes me back to how I felt back then full of ambition, hope, determination and the feeling that I was becoming a man with each passing day.
I’d recently moved to the guest room so I wasn’t in the same room as my brother anymore, we’d just bought a huge second hand desk for me and my dad gave me his old cd player/radio. I felt so ready for anything at that point and I think Captain America came out recently too so you know the Transformation scene in the movie, well yeah I felt it in my bones that I was going to be ‘That Guy’
I’d gone into highschool with the mindset that I was there to learn and do my best. To that end I’d keep track of the time, do all my homework, pack my bag the night before and keep the radio on as I went to sleep.
Some if the best nights of my whole life.

Sadly highschool wasn’t quite what I thought it’d be and I didn’t quite do how I thought it would. I always tried my best and did my utmost to understand what was being taught because I believed and still do Believe that test marks and results and as important as being able to thoroughly understand a problem and work towards an optimal solution. It turns out though the type of behaviour that was being rewarded was braindead rote learning and being able to make the same sounds, phrases and utterances that the teachers wanted to hear.
Where was the inquisition, the drive for truth in understanding, the satisfaction that only comes from being able to grasp a new idea or concept? None of that really mattered apparently.

I wanted so desperately to not be alone in thinking that this was all there was and this was all there ever would be but everyone just seemed to accept it, having literally 0 notion of the sort of precedent it would set for the rest of their lives if they got into the habit of expediency. Now I understood the idea that Life is a Journey at the time (it was not an embodied belief however) Not a Destination, so it really didn’t make a whole lot of sense to live my life shortcut chasing results. (Shortcut because at the time if I can think if one, and no reason not to then why the hell not ay?) BUT all the important decisions in life were predetermined.
Get good marks.
Get good job.
Get a good girl.
Get a house.
Start family.
Etc etc

Like bruh the idea of sitting at a desk all day used to scare the shit out of me funnily enough.
And so after the first couple years in highschool the naive, hopeful boy fell into depression (I’d argue was always there due to lack of quality relationships) and felt betrayed by everyone he knew. Good habits went out the door and in came addictive behaviour and a loathing of self and life.

Those last few years were so painful compared to the first few.
I just wish I had someone who was able to understand at least half of what I was going through but it seemed nobody had any idea why I was so against school and what it was going to do to me if I let it. I stopped trusting people and decided if nobody alive would be able to listen to me and understand, then I was going to listen to everyone and try to understand everyone.

These days I feel like I have maybe an overdeveloped feminine side but looking back at what I had to go through I’d say it was bad enough that nobody should ever have to endure that ever. I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy the feeling of being betrayed by the world and having nobody to turn to and confide in.
It’s getting better now but I still don’t talk to people about the problems I have because they’re just so out of their own heads and emotions and so into chasing results with Sigma Male Grindset I wanna throw up.

The cycle of neglect and embodied betrayal is so strong that guys like me would rather turn to abuse substances or violent crime than admit they have a problem and looking at my own experience Yeah Look Fair Enough Man.


Anyways this song was on a lot on nova way back when and for some reason it’s playing in my mind today so hopefully I can pick up where I left off and finally be on my way to being the man I always knew I could be.
