I don't believe in superstition
just nothing left to try.
How else can I end this suffering?

Burnt Orange Offering

Young Garrett Gilbert was a high school star
He held the Texas record for passing yards
The papers all were calling him a football sensation
And he always wanted to play for the burnt orange nation

They had twenty one recruits in the class he was in
Only four ever got to play, a bunch of stars grew dim

Garrett played for Texas but not for very long
The coaches weren't a good fit, his decision was wrong
They broke his confidence, shook him to his core
Made it impossible for the offense to score

They had twenty one recruits in the class he was in
Only four ever got to play, a bunch of stars grew dim

If you're a young rising football star
Take heed of what he has to say
Beware the burnt orange offering
If you wanna be a star some day

They'll make you a promise 'bout the dreams your fostering
But your dreams will be shattered with a burnt orange offering

Then came Southern Methodist to make a transfer work
Maybe some good would come, he'd forget that Texas hurt
He became an SMU star in the games he played
He made it the NFL, good thing he didn't stay

They had twenty one recruits in the class he was in
Only four ever got to play, a bunch of stars grew dim

If you're a young rising football star
Take heed of what he has to say
Beware the burnt orange offering
If you wanna be a star some day

They'll make you a promise 'bout the dreams your fostering
But your dreams will be shattered with a burnt orange offering

"Burnt Orange Offering"
by Berkeley Social Scene

Let’s start a fire
While the sun’s dying down
Before the moon rises
Over burial ground

Offer it up
Burn it down

Hear my prayers
The wishes that I spoke
Burning the offering
The rising orange smoke

Let’s build a bridge
To bring us all together
Before the time is gone
And we’ve lost all we treasure

Offer it up
Burn it down

Hear my prayers
The wishes that I spoke
Burning the offering
The rising orange smoke

I’ll do whatever it takes
Give all I have to offer
Just save us from ourselves
Before we’re drowning underwater

Let’s make a deal
We’ve run out of time
If the engine stops running
We’ll have no peace of mind

Offer it up
Burn it down

Hear my prayers
The wishes that I spoke
Burning the offering
The rising orange smoke
