lyrics

[Werd]
It’s like he's going going gone
Even though he done nothing wrong
He just can’t argue with the facts
He's gone and he aint coming back [x2]

[Wardie Burns - Big Brother In jail]
I was young I was daft, Got a knife and a slashed
The boys cold body lying lifeless and smashed
Now Im in jail, Locked in tin pale
Im no even allowed nail clippers for ma nails
See I made a mistake, I carried a blade
And I took a boys life then I paggerd his mate
See my hand wasn’t forced but a stabbed him of course
And not a day goes by when I dont feel remorse
Locked up in prison and Im hooked on the drugs
Everybody hates me I dont feel love
Im not like happily disowned by my family
The only one am palely with is ma wee brother by the way
Did a mention he looks up to me
And his 16 birthday is only 2 months away
But my conscience is filthy
I can’t look in the mirror anymore a feel guilty
The boy died I need to live with the crime
And I still do cry during visiting times
My wee brother Craig is coming next week
The last time I saw him he was just like me
He dressed like me, he talked like me
Even cut his hair and he walked like me
But a dinny want that he's in with the wrong crowd
I want him to stay in school make my mum and dad proud
See my brothers names Craig and when I see him again
A'l tell him only draftees go carrying blades
See we're not both the same Im hollow and too stressed
I dont want my wee brother to follow in my footsteps

[Werd]
It’s like he's going going gone
Even though he done nothing wrong
He just can’t argue with the facts
He's gone and he aint coming back [x2]

[Werd - Wee Brother]
My names Craig and every kens me
They ken ma brother so everyone kens me
And they befriend me cause he's no friendly
Handles his enemies, last time anyway..
He started chibbing him, so they imprisoned him
And truth is, well am really missing him
Cause now he's living in, Saughton prison and
Its ma birthday soon am gonna visit him
Im 16 in a couple of days
Plus a wanna be like him so a carry a blade
With that said, never been in the station
But am me through ma brothers reputation
.... So few a days pass
Am gonna see ma brother the night n that class
Oh yas, I’ve no seen him in months
And its ma birthday a think it’s the best one
As am walking along with ma headphone on
And nod ma head ti ma very best song
Then, a see some guys and their moving along
Walking towards me and I ken something’s wrong...
Shit, I put hand in a pocket
Clutching ma blade they’re no taking ma wallet
But hit, shit I got hit fae the back
Fell right flat, on ma own blade ahhh'
Its pure bleeding, its pure plugged me
They didn’t mean it turned so ugly
They kent ma brother, just wanted to jump me
They ran off, as a died on my birthday

[Werd]
It’s like he's going going gone
Even though he done nothing wrong
He just can’t argue with the facts
He's gone and he aint coming back [x2]
