My mom turned 18 in the 1960s and she doesn't remember stone wall
to be fair she can't have known id be her kid 
that the bricks launched at police would compel me to exist
and I think about that now down the  ballot
of the ones I love and I don't know yet
and I wrote it for you

oh what a terrible honour it is
to watch the sky fall as a character witness
I spent the rest of the night freaking out
I had to get high just to put myself down

but I woke up for you

and I cut my hair, because I'm worth it 
these days I believe in big foot more than god, because who is he hurting
I grew up a preachers kid, cleaning up after communions 

I know that a church is not a way to live
its a weekly reunion

my best friend found god so we lost touch
I bet a saviour beats a friend who thinks you are good enough 
I hope she finds love and peace 
and if her kid comes out I hope that she calls me. 

oh what a terrible honour its been
to learn that my blessings are things you call sins
ill spend the rest of my life tearing down
the Jesus from Texas you put in a crown

but I won't give up on you
