Purchase a cassette copy of the split at autolatry.storenvy.com.

"Brother" is the third track appearing on the split EP "Northeastern Hymns", also featuring our friends Obsidian Tongue, In Human Form, and Infera Bruo. This song is about the deep bond between my brother Matt and I. It is Autolatry's denouement, the last thing this band will ever release. Thank you for listening.

-Dave Kaminsky

lyrics

Brother, break my heart
You left me on this earth
Tear, tear out my teeth
Your eyes follow me

Mother, take my hand
I'll show you what is light
Blind, blind without speech
My love is deceit

Brother, nomad
My gentle wing to you
Is just as your strong hands
Are to their prey

My wax wing melted
When you turned away
When you closed your open palm
And left me astray

Brother, dark horse
Cast your shadow onto me
Our limbs shorn from the tree
The tree of stone

Can you not see
How the river runs between?
Our hearts are shores
Of the same ravine

Brother, break my heart
You left me on this earth
Tear, tear out my teeth
Your eyes follow me

Mother, take my hand
I'll show you what is light
Blind, blind without speech
My love is deceit

Our epitaph is tied from the past
If I gave up my path, I gave it for you
Together now, but what of the future?
Our souls are one.
