about

I Was Born is the story of personal rebirth. It's naked. It's vulnerable. Leaving your past behind to serve a bigger purpose can be painful or lonely. But the most powerful thing you can do is change.

Track Name: I / You
I can't go back
I've changed
you've changed me

I can't go back
I'm healed
you healed me

I can't ever be that broken again

you hold the power
I reigned
you reined me

you hold the power
I'm kneeled
I'm kneeling

I can't ever be that broken again

except by you
Track Name: I Still Care
does anyone see me?
does any of this matter?
they say your life begins when you no longer care what anyone thinks of you
but I still care
but I still care
I still care
I still want you to look at me
I still wait for the buzz
like my phone is a bumblebee
I just want your sympathy
they call me drama queen
I dream of proving them all sorry
I only have to be big enough
they can't ignore me
but I still care
Track Name: I Am Not the Higher Power
I am not the higher power
I am not the higher power
I'm rebuilding my body for you
I'm rebuilding my body for you
it's the only time I'd like to disappear...

but you see me here.

"it is so simple if you can believe in immortality"
Track Name: I Was Born
i think i died this week
the earth slipped away
i didn't leave
you didn't stay
you didn't stay

i think i died this week
the lights dimmed out
i didn't scream
you didn't shout
you didn't shout

it was the loneliest occupation
only my soul to keep me warm
and the mumbling and the shaking
wouldn't let up til i was born
til i was born
til i was born

i think i died this week
but i can't be sure
i wasn't chaste
you weren't pure
you weren't pure
Track Name: See Themselves
I think I'm always dreaming
can't wake
had more than I could take
won't wake
it's like I'm still performing
off stage
I think I'm still performing with you too
look at how well I play myself
look at how well I play myself
and I play myself
I still got it
I still got it
maybe they see me better
than I see myself
'cause no one can see themselves
and
I think I'm always dreaming
can't wait
everyone's a huge mistake
won't wait
it's like I'm still performing
off stage
I think I'm still performing
with you too
look at how well I play myself
look at how well I play myself
and I play myself
I still got it
I still got it
maybe they see me better
than I see myself
'cause no one can see themselves
and
