Born Again

I came into the world, into the wild
No place for a child
Used my voice to howl 
With the ghouls of night
In the dying light

Had to learn to get what I need
In the dark, empty
Instincts are guiding me 
Like a beast to some blood
And I can’t get enough

I’m losing control; my body, my soul
Are slowly fading away
But I’m ready now 
To feel the power of change

I’m my mother’s child
I’m my father’s son
It took me awhile
But my time has come
To be born again

Running scared in between what I hate 
And what I need
Savior and enemy are both trying
To take my soul
And I can’t hide no more

Stumble out to the light
Raise my fist up to fight
Then I catch your eye 
So full of love
Lord, what have I done?

I cry at your feet, wounded for me 
And all of the monsters and men
But here in your light 
We can begin again

I’m my mother’s child
I’m my father’s son
It took me a while
But my time has come
To be born again
