I grew up in Texas and had a pretty shitty, weird childhood. I got out of the state as soon as I could and tried to put it all behind me. I mostly lived there for the Ann Richards era and didn't quite figure out that I was living in a cesspool of idiocy and racism until it was too late. But they indoctrinate you early and often in Texas. One second I'll be saying how they should put a protective dome over Austin then nuke the rest of the state, the next I'm lecturing you on the Republic of Texas and proper BBQ technique. That damn Texas pride is hard to shake.

But seriously, nuke that whole state.


Texas, oh Texas
You're always on my mind
That damned Texas pride that I learned as a child
I can't say I loved you, because that would be a lie, but now that I've left you I'm surprised to find I can't leave you behind

Texas, oh Texas
There was a time I thought I'd live and die off of I-35
But now things are different
Look what you've become!
How I wish I didn't need to apologize for the place that I'm from

Texas, oh Texas
You did a number on me
On my whole family
But they're too blind to see
Make no mistake, dear, I've left you for good
I've found a new state here that feels more like home than you ever could
