about

This song is about the fear of being alone, the journey of learning to cope with loss, and by the end of the track I ultimately wanted to give that sense of empowerment to the listener that you can stand on your own and be ok.

lyrics

Head in My Grave

I hope my brothers got my back
'cause I’m taking the hard road
I’ve got my guns drawn and I left my saddle on the side of the road
‘cause I know the best way to know yourself is by being alone.

The wind blew
The campfire side to side and smoke against the yellow moon
I stand
Guns drawn to darkness in some kind of morbid trance

(chorus)
I keep sticking my head in my grave
Just to see if I really end this alone
Sure enough my cradle is lined with my bones
Since I left my baby at home
Since I left my baby at home

The sun rose
High above the skyline turning fear into shadows
I stood
Holsters taught, eyes blood shot set out on the trail I choose

(chorus)
