Grateful Dead - My Brother Esau (Single B-Side) lyrics

My brother Esau k**ed the hunter back in 1969 Before the k**ing was done his inheritance was mine When at first my brother walked away before a weary band Esau gave his sleeplessness for a piece of moral land Our father favored Esau, he was eager to obey All the wild commandments, the old man shot his way But all this ended when my brother failed at war He staggered home and found me in the door Esau, he's on roller skates today And he make a statement to someone in L.A. Sometimes at night I dream, he's still that hairy man Shadow boxing the apocalypse, wandering the land Esau holds the blessing, brother Esau holds the curse I was thinking that the blame was mine But suspected something worse The more my brother looks like me, the more I understand
