HOUSTON (Words & Music by James Power) Midnight Tears Music ©2011


IF YOU’RE IN HOUSTON YOU’RE NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME IF YOU’RE IN HOUSTON YOU’LL DEAD BEFORE YOU’VE DIED A  MAN CAN’T WONDER WHERE HE’S GONE WRONG IF HE’S LIVED HIS LIFE AT THE BOTTOM HOW THE YEARS GO BY LIKE A SWELTERING TIDE AND NO ONE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE, TO BE OR NOT TO BE


IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYWAY IN HOUSTON YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE IN YOUR GRAVE IN HOUSTON


NOW FOR MOST PEOPLE HOUSTON’S NOT A PLACE TO AIM IT’S WHERE YOU FIND YOURSELF WHEN YOU’RE CHANGING PLANES IT’S MAN CREATED, HOME TO HALLIBURTON CROOKS SO CULTURALLY DEVOID THEY NAMED THE AIRPORT AFTER BUSH HOW THE SKIES TURN BEIGE WITH INDUSTRIAL WASTE AND NO ONE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE THEY'VE FORSAKEN ALL THEIR DREAMS


IT DOESN’T MATTER IN THE END IN HOUSTON YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD IN HOUSTON IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYWAY IN HOUSTON YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE IN YOUR GRAVE IN HOUSTON


WHEN THE ALAMO WAS UNDER SIEGE IN 1836 SANTA ANNA AND HIS MEN DROVE THE TEXANS IN THE DITCH EVERYBODY WONDERED WHERE THE HELL DID GENERAL HOUSTON GO WELL, HE RAN AND HE RAN AND HE RAN AND HE RAN TO THE GULF OF MEXICO EVEN HE DIDN’T WANT TO BE IN HOUSTON


IT DOESN’T MATTER ANYWAY IN HOUSTON YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE IN YOUR GRAVE IN HOUSTON


IF YOU’RE IN HOUSTON YOU CAN’T SEE THE STARS AT NIGHT IF YOU’RE IN HOUSTON YOU CAN’T SAY YOU’VE DONE ALRIGHT IS IT ANY WONDER THAT YOU LOSE YOUR SOUL YOU SEE A RAINBOW BUT IT’S JUST GREASE & OIL HOW THE YEARS FALL HARD LIKE A HOLLOWED OUT HEART WHEN YOU BUILD ON A FAULT LINE YOU’RE JUST BIDING TIME


IT DOESN’T MATTER IN THE END IN HOUSTON YOU’D BE BETTER OFF DEAD THAN IN HOUSTON IT DOESN’T MATTER ANY HOW IN HOUSTON JUMP IN THE RIVER & DROWN IF YOU’RE IN HOUSTON
