Born Again Gone
(semi-autobiographical lies)

I was born in the back seat of a city
hot city called
the body of Jesus Christ himself
didn't make me no better
or worse off than anybody else oh no
was a baby blue '49 old oldsmobile
gulfcoast faded
like a picture on a shelf
had hydra-glide, couldn't keep me inside
cause this baby's had a future
now mama's got her pride
Aw baby sweet baby can't you save my soul
I'm falling apart sinking down this hole
Wrestling with the devil, everything's gone wrong looking for truth and salvation
Inside this song / I hope it won't be long/
Where has my born again gone

I'm a son of my father, son of a gun
I hit my bottom had nowhere to run
Tried to hide, but I could not see
some kind of something
came undone in me
It was the way that it was
now it's no big deal
blind dumb luck
proverbial slip
on a banana peel


Now there just ain't no telling
what the future may hold
we're all barreling down
same winding ice road
got them creature comforts
habits running wild
but more you dig, bigger your pile
& you don't wanna sell out
for a kiss, a wink or a smile
