-----------------------------------
BROTHER LEADER ( W.Sony )
----------------------------------
I think I’m going to hang onto power
For 49 years 6 months and 3 hours
Got an army and a desert full of oil
A handful of friends that pretend to be loyal

Fought my brother in a civil war
Sent him away to a distant shore
Like Romulus and Remus
There’s nothing between us
We keep it in the family
They’re pulling me down

Burning bridges through the telephone
Lost support when I searched their homes
Took the TV and the Mercedes Benz
Now they’re marching in the street with their friends

Killed my brother in a civil war
Sent his children to a distant shore
Like Romulus and Remus
There’s nothing between us
We keep it in the family
But they’re pulling me down
