lyrics

She left home on a whim,
on a prayer humming hymns;
a hundred bucks to her name and no credit cards.
She cut through Oklahoma
in her little Toyota.
Golden Gate on her heart and her money in a mason jar.

She called her Mama at a truck stop out in Flagstaff, Arizona.
She said, “I’m gonna make it fine off of kindness and Coca­-Cola.

It’s in my heart, it’s in my bones
in my blood, and it’s in my soul.
It’s even in the static on the radio.
It’s why I live, it’s why I leave
It’s safe to say it’s a part of me:
I was born without borders."

Born and raised in the Southeast;
now twenty-three on Frisco’s streets;
scraping by on that minimum wage.
She didn’t fall in love,
but she stumbled on growing up.
She used to think those things would come with age.

She said, “I’ll give it a year or so.
I’ve gotta give me some time to grow.”

It’s in my heart, it’s in my bones
in my blood, and it’s in my soul.
It’s even in the static on the radio.
It’s why I live, it’s why I leave
It’s safe to say it’s a part of me:
I was born without borders.
I was born without borders.

The funny thing about faith:
it’s hard as hell to fake.
Believing looks a lot like gambling.
I’ve tried counting cards,
I’ve tried shooting stars,
But all my prayers fade into rambling.
The good Lord knows that I’m a restless man;
I hope He helps her somehow understand...

She’s in my heart, she’s in my bones
in my blood, and she’s in my soul.
She’s even in the static on the radio.
She’s why I live, she’s why I leave
It’s safe to say she’s a part of me
I was born without borders.
I was born without borders.
We were born without borders

about

The New Schematics Nashville, Tennessee

Nashville’s The New Schematics spent their first 15 months as a band proving that the Born Without Borders Tour was indeed the right name for their tour that spanned 97 shows in 42 cities across the US and Canada. It is no wonder as to why they’ve gained the reputation as a live act with “the crowd control skills of preachers” (Cougar Microbes) whose “passion for their art is palpable” (Valslist). ... more
