Bourbon Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm a headless horseman on quilted sand dunes
With my neck wide open, I pray for refuge
Verse 2
'Cause since I've been found I've been living a life in cages
Withering down to the champagne quicksand
Wrestling doubt I've been dragging around for ages
I tried to let it drain but my veins are hopeless
Verse 3
'Cause I loved in cold blood and got used to it
Angels say trust the detox
But I'm shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup
Verse 4
I'm a tritone bible with misprint logic
I count lunar cycles with faithless prophets
Verse 5
'Cause since I've been found I've been living a life in cages
Withering down to the champagne quicksand
Wrestling doubt I've been dragging around for ages
I tried to let it drain but my veins are hopeless
Verse 6
'Cause I loved in cold blood and got used to it
Angels say trust the detox
But I'm shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup
Verse 7
I'm a mountainless valley
Never comforted crashing
I'm just another stone on broken walls
Racing the winds in a hurricane
I'm not as brave as I once was
I've been kicking these rocks in a river
And they've been sinking low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low
Oh they've been going low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low
I mean, I lied, how long?
'Cause they've been sinking low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low
Won't keep a promise I can't make
'Cause I've been going low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low
Verse 8
'Cause I loved in cold blood and got used to it
Angels say trust the detox
But I'm shaking I need it like bourbon in my coffee cup
Verse 9
Low, low, low, low, low
We've been going low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low
Going low, low, low, low, low
Low, low, low, low, low
