I can't be arsed answering each paragraph but...


The good brother is actually the bad brother. The bad brother is consumed with guilt and self loathing for briniging his family into disrepute by drinking too much etc. Meanwhile the 'good' brother is being unfaithful to his wife (
I took as this infidelidy as the bitter pill yet undiscovered), using bribery and corruption to gain power (i.e. get behind a desk and make some big decisions), his wife finds out and wants to tell (a mind of her own), so he kills her, get caught and either kills himself or is executed.

Winners never quit, here's my take in a nutshell.

It's an album written around irony. Much of what modern Christianity is based on is how we appear morally and not how we actually ARE. I am reminded of the Pharisees and Jesus calling them "white-washed tombs." It's the same concept in Winners. On the album, the brother who was the one everyone thought was the "good" son (i.e. "moral," successful, went to church, etc.) turned out to be a "white-washed tomb." And the "bad" brother who was in jail was actually the one with the repentant heart. Looks are most often deceiving.
