Convictions - Brother's Blood Lyrics

Dear brother, it kills me to keep this inside
It kills me
It kills me to separate from you

Don't always assume the worst of me

If love is an extension of my own selfishness
Then I viewed you like a personal golden crown
They say family comes first
Yet I've left you to the fields to perish

I know I can't save you
I can't do this anymore
We are an endless war

Dear brother, I can't save you
Can't change your mind after all we've been through
All I ever wanted was to save your soul
Dear brother, what have we come to?
Forgive me now I just have to tell you
This love comes from the most sincere of places

Was it from mother's disconnection or the family's divorce?
I have no answers. Do you think they feel remorse?

Something's gotta give
Something's gotta change your mind

God, save my brother's soul
Show me a way to make him whole

Don't leave him behind
This brother of mine

I know I can't save you
I can't do this anymore
We are an endless war

Dear brother, I can't save you
Can't change your mind after all we've been through
All I ever wanted was to save your soul
Dear brother, what have we come to?
Forgive me now I just have to tell you
This love comes from the most sincere of places

Brother, how could there be a God
Who watches his children burn?
I tried to believe but my eyes can't see
The one you follow so damn blindly

Forgive my wayward actions. These words come from concern
From dust we came and dust we return
I know there's more to life. Won't you take a look around
Will we burn in hell or simply rot in the ground?
We are both one in the same despite our belief
My soul is safer without these false beliefs
Time heals all wounds. Time heals all wounds
We are bound by blood

Brother, I'll carry your cross for you until my bones break
You said yourself, "It's never too late to change."

Convictions Brother's Blood Comments
  1. Hunter King

    I can't believe it took me this long to realize this song is a sort of response to dayseeker's a God without a face. So many cross references.

  2. Pimpdaddyspaghettios

    One of the all time best. Up there in the top 5

  8. Kenta

    Cr1tikal brought me here ^∆^

  9. Space_Bound

    Been a while since a song gave me chills..


    Same, I get chills every time I listen to this band.

  10. Hollow Hogan2

    Hollow Hogan2

    Wait, when and where did Cr1tikal play this song? That's freaking rad.

    Solarc12 In his video titled "Overwatch Master", towards the first half of the video


    @HumongousPizzas thanks

  11. Epileptic Chocobo

    Screamer sounds like Telle Smith.

  12. Angel Westbrook

    i hate religion but this is what tons of christians need to get on! and other christian bands like red,skillet, and impeding doom

  13. Kid Kranium

    I swear, convictions and dayseeker got a connection behind this song

  14. Clark DeCant

    Where The Fuck Is My Mac 'N Cheese

    @Marvin Teran thanx, was srsly worried for them

  16. Ham City

    sounds like beartooth

  17. Corey Walton

    Guys I love the perspective in this song. You have the side that believes in God and is trying to bring someone to Christ and a side that tried and just can't seem to understand it. This is an awesome and very relatable song to anyone who's tried to bring someone to Christ. Keep it up guys and I'm looking forward to the new album! God bless.

  18. Colton Colburn

    The guys at Convictions are doing some incredible things...

    Love the lyrics and especially love Rory's vocal addition

  23. Kevin Fehrenbach

    Damn, as a follower of Christ I know what it's like to have a brother who doesn't know Him. I pray for him and anyone who doesn't know that God doesn't just want to save us, but he wants to have a personal relationship with him, all we have to do is ask

  24. Archie Vroman II

  39. ConcertsLive

    So good!🔥

  40. Lauren T

    Oh my god, the reference to Hollow Shell by Dayseeker at the end just did me in. Such an amazing song featuring an equally amazing vocalist.

  41. dearxphantom

    the most creative way to make a lyric video EVER ! whoevert came up of this idea for this lyric video is GENIUS ! Awesome song by the way !

  42. Zachary Stewart

    I can't even begin to express how great this is. The alternating perspectives in the lyrics are so sincere and relateable to my own thoughts. Also, I love that two artists can come together and directly contradict each other within a song. These are actual words and phrases I've heard from Dayseeker songs, and the Convictions side was so sincere . So real, and one side is not made out to the victor.

    DeathWorks Inc.

    Can you tell me the songs from Dayseeker?

    Garrett Reichman

    +DeathWorks Inc. "will we burn in hell or simply rot in the ground" is from God without a face. The last line is a reference to hollow shell

    Josue Valencia-Soriano

    +Garrett Reichman also the part where he said, "You said it yourself, 'it's never to late to change'" which is from Hollow Shell. This song is just amazing by the way/.\

    Jake Sanchez

    @DeathWorks Inc. Love your name. My band wrote a song called deathworks. Check it!

  43. Brad Spear

    So freaking awesome! Love it!!!!

  44. Money_Phone

    This is great!!

  45. Preston head

    Love it it's marvelous

  46. Sean O'Callaghan
