Sorry if this has been posted before, but if it has I for one missed it. Great title but a little disappointing overall. Nevertheless, probably deserves to be better known in these circles.

But here are the lyrics:

I'M NOT MY BROTHER'S KEEPER

The Flaming Ember

I'm not my brother's keeper, though he be strong or weaker

Before you judge me, why not try to love me?

I'll try to help you when he's wrongin' us

Don't point your finger, sayin' it's all of us

If a man yells "hate," will my voice be heard?

Does he speak for me when he chooses one bad word?

When wrong is done under one person's name

Should all the people have to share the blame?

I'm not my brother's keeper, though he be strong or weaker

Before you judge me, why not try to love me?

If I do wrong, then someone make me pay

But if I'm right, don't try to block my way

Don't judge the story without opening up the book

The good you find inside it many times is overlooked

Being militant don't mean peace ain't in your heart

Though we're most impatient for freedom to start

I'm not my brother's keeper, though he be strong or weaker

Before you judge me, why not try to love me?

Don't cut into me with your knives of doubt

Before you judge me, why not hear me out?

Whoa, brothers!!

(I'm not my brother's keeper) 9X

I'm not my brother's keeper, though he be strong or weaker

Before you judge me, why not try to love me?

I'll try to help you when he's wrongin' us

Don't point your finger, sayin' it's all of us

(repeat to fade)
