lyrics

o holy texas did i forsake you?
you never gave me much
cos you never told me nothing
when the night started spinning
and your stars came unglued
you threw your head back into the bloodshot sky
just like a moth to the light

this engine takes us down with a will of its own
we thought we were burning dear,
you smell like gasoline and misconstrued fear
o holy texas, was i marked for life
by your duplicitous silence,
this bullshit babble, your aching travel

you made me live
you let me down
you made me live
you let me down
you made me live
you let me down
you made me live
you let me down

trying hard to shake
...this sawdust
trying hard, trying hard,
trying hard, trying hard,
trying hard, trying hard
trying hard, trying hard

by Jasper i learned to see with my own eyes
and i knew you could not stand behind
the words i heard you write,
and i know you’ve since changed
Cain walks again,
and this hunger is the same,
i’ve seen my shadow at the reigns,
it’s still hollerin my name

you made me live
you let me down
you made me live
you let me down
you made me live
you let me down
you made me live
you let me down
