Riff: Cody ChesnuTT – “Everybody’s Brother”

Nov 14, 2012

No one could sell a lie quicker than I/No one could shift a blame better than me

from Everybody's Brother lyrics by Cody ChesnuTT

A previously released single, “Everybody’s Brother” comes right out and explains in detail what kind of darkness Codywas descending into. This is a different version, much more upbeat and polished than the previous one, and it captures a totally different vibe. Cody seems ready to bury his past for good.
