Baptism Song

from by Building Rockets

lyrics

You were baptized on the riverside. It felt so good just to let yourself die, and as you fell away just like the tears from your eyes, you were new. All these people that you call your friends wonder if some day you'll let them in. Pushed away by all of your supposed sins only you knew. You prayed to God that He could change the past and in your dreams you'd watch the house collapse: every wall would crumble and every window crack, levelled and reduced to splintered beams and dust and ash, and you hope there is a Hell where every heart can meet its match. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia. Alleluia.

about

Building Rockets Austin, Texas

Building Rockets is occasionally a band and occasionally a bedroom recording project.

It sounds a little like The Pixies and Wilco covering Fountains of Wayne songs while “Abbey Road” plays in the background.
