Tyler Childers – Born Again (Purgatory Album)

Once I was a dyin’ breed
Chewin’ on an ancient leaf
Before we took the notion
To keep up with the times

And leave ‘em all behind
Chisel to the paper
Tattoos on the ether
Fadin’ in the light

All the while I gorge my gut
Come the time that I would rut
Runnin’ high and low
To find my prehistoric queen

To keep me warm ’til spring
When I go out with my friends
To graze the land and wonder
When I’d see your face again

One day I met my doom
I took one in the boiler room
To put food on the table
Of a dying breed of man

Once I was a broken heart
Once I tore your heart apart
Once my heart put out
Before I ever got to breathe

And my soul returned to sea
To come to Earth again
Clucking out a living
As a favorite laying hen

One day I met my doom
A fox got in the chicken coop
Doing all he knew to do
To feed a hungry den

On and on down the line
I’ve swam canals and [?]
Plenty of births along this ride
Of being born again

Once I was and you were too
And we were both the word of truth
We built this world together
With a loud and mighty bang

Lord, it sounded like a train
It echoed o’er the land
We came up with the game we play
Of being born again
