about

Holy Holy is about whatever you believe “holy” to mean, and how hard it is, especially in the world we live in, to live up to that. There is so much spirituality being marketed these days, it’s hard to tell what’s fake and what’s real. So the song is also asking, for whatever path you’re on, are you being fake or are you being real with yourself?

lyrics

Lyrics:

In the back seat’s where I left her
Skinny jeans and smeared mascara
She’d been talking my head off bout the
Impending Fall

Popping pills of red and green
We’d been looking for some ecstasy
Hard to find some peace inside of
The dark of it all

Oh I do, I do, I do

She reads signs and tarot cards
Takes selfies from the stars
She got a lesson for everyone
At the bar

Bright lights and late night scenes
I saw her naked on a telephone screen
Hard to keep the faith with your back
Up against the wall

Can we be Holy Holy
Living a lie
So Holy Holy
All of the time, yea yea
Holy Holy
It seems so easy when you’re
Holy Holy
Lord knows I try

I take journals of my dreaming
Sex scenes and late night scheming
I see so much more
With my eyes closed

Drawing lines on concrete walls
Trying to answer some higher call
Trying to teach the world what it
Already knows

Can we be Holy Holy
Living a lie
So Holy Holy
All of the time, yea yea
Holy Holy
It seems so easy when you’re
Holy Holy
Lord knows I try

Can we be Holy Holy
Living a lie
So Holy Holy
All of the time, yea yea
Holy Holy
It seems so easy when you’re
Holy Holy
Lord knows I try

I try
Holy Holy
Lord knows I try
Holy Holy
I try
Holy Holy
Lord knows I try
