"Born a Man" as written by and Eef Barzelay....
The dog's chasing buzzards'
shadows across the deck.
Carving circles in the sky with
bibs tied around their neck.

And the lake was once a desert
where the houseboat ran aground.
A bright florescent jet ski had to
tow us back to town.
A bright florescent jet ski had to
tow us back to town.

Startled by the paper
and its unfamiliar slang.
It said the local beauty pageant winner
had been born a man.

They chased her through the wheat field.
They stripped her of her crown.
Desperate just to get their dusty
seed into the ground.
Desperate just to get their dusty
seed into the ground.

And you say there's no one in this world
no one who's truly free.
Every single one of us a
kitten up a tree.

Except for maybe surfers
and porn stars by degree.
Well i wonder if she loves her work as
as much as you love me.
I wonder if she loves her work as
as much as you love me.

They drained the fluid nightly
but by dawn it's there again.
The head nurse recommended that you
count backwards from ten.

And those who are the most afraid
say courage is a sin.
We are just bracing for the impact by
loosening our limbs.
We are just bracing for the impact by
loosening our limbs.

We are...
