"Baptized In The Rio Grande" as written by and Jesus Maria De Hoyos Iii Jon Jacob Olivarez....

[Verse 1]
Way down
Bred by bloodsuckers
And dying trees that scream
"You'll never see past scrutiny."
Way down
Absorb the sun
Radiate then peel away
Way down
Concrete flows like water
It don't falter
To manifest jungles of steel

[Chorus]
Born and raised
In the bowels of the states
Where glory days
And doom are hand in hand
When I've lost my way
All I need, is within me
Born and raised
Baptized in the Rio Grande

[Verse 2]
Weighed down
Hope holds no water
We don't bother to
Feed the seed within our hearts
Weighed down By blood, lies, pride and politics
We are weighed down
Lest we become fruitless
Lest we don't succeed
Anchored in complacence
We forever sink

[Chorus 2]
Born and raised
In the bowels of the states
Where glory days
And doom are hand in hand
When I've lost my way
All I need, is within me
Born and raised
Baptized in the Rio Grande (x3)
Yeah!
Baptized in the Rio Grande

[Verse 3]
Weighed down
Bred by bloodsuckers and dying trees
We are weighed down

[Chorus 3]
Born and raised
In the bowels of the states
Where glory days
And doom are hand in hand
When I've lost my way
All I need, is within me
Born and raised
Baptized in the Rio Grande (x5)
Baptized! Baptized!
