Liner Notes: 

The rising up of an individual.

This is going for the random collab.

Eric: I like the story, and there's good built-in rhythm in the lyric, which made it easier. So I tuned the guitar to DADGAD tuning and tried to work something out. It's a little loose, in the end, but hopefully gets the idea across.

Guitar in DADGAD, fake drums, ukulele bass, cigarbox guitar (first recording of this instrument)

Lyrics: 

Reborn

I carry some shame
but it's just steps in the game
I worry that we
don't chase the big dreams we see
I defend my right
to head to battle to fight
I step out to see
If the world's ready for me

I've been battered
I've been torn
But now
I'm reborn
I've been bruised
Used and worn
But now
I'm reborn

I accept I'm wrong
To not say that I was gone
I needed a change
And had a new life to arrange
I weathered your storms
But then they became the norm
I'm searching for sun
To rise up when I am done

I've been battered
I've been torn
But now
I'm reborn
I've been bruised
Used and worn
But now
I'm reborn

See me reborn
With the strength to forge ahead
See me reborn
Any length to raise my head
See me reborn
Light the fire that's inside me
See me reborn
Raised higher by what I see

I'm reborn
I've been bruised
Used and worn
But now
I'm reborn

I offer my hand
So you can shake and understand
I bettered my life
And my move away was right
I travelled the line
Between unhappy and fine
I shook up the nest
Cause I had to find the best

I've been battered
I've been torn
But now
I'm reborn
I've been bruised
Used and worn
But now
I'm reborn

There sure is a great built-in rhythm to these words - and the musical treatment nails it! That slippery slide guitar sounds so good, and I dig the uplifiting chorus vocals. Nice collab!

Powerful lyrics that demonstrate humility, integrity, and insight. Love that! And nicely structured to come alive with that beautiful melody! Love the sound of that cigar box guitar! A perfect pairing and wonderful collaboration'
