Southern Reasons

so still breathing for jesus
neon red cross and fingers crossed
i dont believe in god
i dont believe in the earth or purpose
its only to be happy
i smiled
you are so naive
dont know nothing
that cross isnt salvation
listen to the brush lullaby
listen to my heart
we’re warm blooded
so we can bring each others bodies close
when death cold spreads its
ice cracking spider veins
over the weak white
i dont believe in anything
i believe in everything
reasons and being and you and me
we’re so wrong for each other
but i know why im here
sometimes you need a little
proof of faith
to make them stars shine
other wise
it’ll all go dark
and i choose the light
always the light
on these city nights
truck stops with your buddies
they give you different reasons
wild turkey and a trailer
you could do better
but you never let yourself
i take your hand
run my swiss knife
down the center
i push your blood in my blood
those headlights
theyll bring you back to me
run free
i can follow your blood
youre a piece of me
and if i believe
then you’ll believe
preaching isnt my job
and praying isnt yours
thats why we belong together
and why ive got to save you
from this field of briars youve thrown yourself into
