This song was written late 2010 in Austin, Texas by Chris in honor of his sister Rainey's birthday. It is about emacinpating ourselves from human slavery.

"Born to Be Free"

“We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now.”
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

CHORUS
BORN, BABY BORN, BABY BORN TO BE.
BORN, BABY BORN, BABY BORN TO BE.
BORN, BABY BORN, BABY BORN TO BE.
BORN, BABY BORN, YOU WERE BORN TO BE FREE.

VERSE
Make your choice: fight or flight.
The middle of the road is no longer right.
How could you know you were a slave?
Did you know you could be so brave?

REPEAT CHORUS 2x

BRIDGE
Today is the day of your birth.
Your sweet soul reached out to the Earth.
And we celebrate the day.
Yes we celebrate today.

REPEAT CHORUS 2x

It has nothing to do with a small boat with paddles, but entirely something to do with an old Scandinavian English king... perhaps. ... more
