"Deep South" as written by Carson Chamberlain and Mark Daniel Sanders....
I was born in the south
Given to a town raised on hand to mouth
Born on the same day as the sun
Holding in the Earth's seed one by one

I died in the cold and waited to rot
Frozen like stone, all is for not
All that I am is churning inside
All that I am is screaming

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

I feel it in my skin
Coming undone again and again
Torn at the seam my heart had sown
Holding back the tears shed on my own

If dying is bold, then courage I've got
I could grow old, but I forgot
All that I am is churning inside
The voice in my head is screaming

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

I was born in the south
Given to a town raised on hand to mouth
Born on the same day as the sun
Counting every heart beat one by one

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south
Go and get my bones
Bring 'em to the deep south
Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
Here in the deep south

    General Commenthere are the lyrics from the CD:

    "I was born in the south
    Given to a town raised on hand to mouth
    Born on the same day as the sun
    Holding in the Earth, seen one by one

    I died in the cold, and waited to rot
    Frozen like stone, all is for naught
    All that I am is churning inside
    All that I am is screaming...

    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south
    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south

    I feel it in my skin
    Coming undone again and again
    Torn at the seam my heart is sown
    Holding back the tears shed on my own

    If dying is bold, that courage I've got
    I could grow old, but I forgot
    All that I am is churning inside
    The voice in my head is screaming...

    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south
    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south

    I was born in the south
    Given to a town raised on hand to mouth
    Born on the same day as the sun
    Counting every heart beat one by one

    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south
    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Oh yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south

    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south
    Go and get my bones
    Bring 'em to the deep south
    Yeah somewhere they can thaw out
    Here in the deep south"

    General Commenti think its talking about his past like obviously where he is from. he is starting to lose himself in the world and he needs to go back home in order to find himself again.

    General CommentI believe this song is about the desire to return to the south after being in other, especially northen parts, of the U.S. These guys are from Georgia, and while touring they go all over so it makes sense. To me it means something similar, as I am from the south but recently moved to the north. It's just about homesickness.
