lyrics

Whatever happened to your strange younger brother?
He was always good with his hands
Built things that he would just think of
Never drew up a plan
He'd write his first and last name in perfect cursive
Never could read real well
He joined the theater, skipped every rehearsal
Still got to know all the girls

Never wanted to hang around us
He didn't have many friends of his own
He'd spend hours alone in his basement
Never said much to anyone
He moved out of the house first chance that he got
Didn't say goodbye to your mom
He brought a girl on the road, some actress he'd met
Left behind everyone so that he could be free

People said he was living in Alaska
That's not too hard to believe
I could see him working the boats there
Somewhere he could just breathe
Maybe he moved up north, where no one knows his name
And no one will be asking for him
He could be anyone, do anything, maybe even start again
Somewhere he could be free

Whatever happened to your strange younger brother?
Heard that he hit it big
Made millions on the internet and married that actress
They could be living downstate with a couple of kids
But not once have they called
It broke your mama's heart on the day that he left
She never will understand why he needs to be free

Whatever happened to your strange younger brother?
He was always good with his hands
Never could tell what he wanted
But maybe he had a plan
