Lyrics
When the light goes out
And you can't go on
You'll miss your brothers
But now they're gone, mmm
When the light goes out
We'll go our own way
Nothing here but darkness
No reason to stay

Oh, once were brothers
Brothers no more
We lost our connection
After the war
There'll be no revival
There'll be no one cold
Once were brothers
Brothers no more

When that curtain comes down
We'll let go of the past
Tomorrow's another day
Some things weren't meant to last
When that curtain comes down
On the final act
And you know, you know deep inside
There's no goin' back

Once were brothers
Brothers no more
We lost our way
After the war
Can't even remember
What we're fighting for
When once were brothers
Brothers no more

We already had it out
Between the north and south
When we heard all the laughs
Comin' out of your mouth
But we stood together
Like we were next of kin
And when the band played dixie (dixie, dixie, dixie)
They came marchin' in

Once were brothers
Brothers no more
We lost our connection
After the war
There'll be no revival
There'll be no encore
Once were brothers
Brothers no more
