I Found The Border

from by The Grownups



Another final mix from Marco Migliari. Unbelievable tones!

What talent scouts Taxi.com said about The Light-Filled Corner:

"Incredibly well-written songs and emotionally captivating performances. I'm not sure I can put into words how much I appreciate what you've accomplished...you've got to be buried six feet under not to be moved by the captivating performances. Lyrically, you're working at an extremely high level. It's all so incredibly appealing. Really looking forward to hearing more!"


I found the border
ragged hem
Where you begin
And I end

I found the border
hazy grey
where you mean everything
you say

I found the border
fraying ends
where your enemies
are also your friends

Waves crashed us
Maybe a hundred times
We clung to everything
Not over the sides

We crawled through trenches
[gritted in the gale]
We tasted the blood
[of the martyr’s nails]
We rose from inside
[our barricade]
Crushed by the fading
[hope that remained]
The little hope that remained
[the little hope that remained]

Then we found the border
scissored ledge
where peace begins
battle ends

We found the border
the picket fence
where experience discovers
it’s lost innocence

When our breath left us
One question remained
Would we just lie there
Or would we get up again

Well, we got up again
We got up again
We got up again
We got up again

Got up through the darkness
Up through the pain
Up through the night
That had no day
There was no day
There was no day
There was no day

Till we found the border
Razor’s edge
Where new beginnings meet
Those terrible ends

I found the border
Ragged hem
Where you begin and everything else
suddenly ends

It suddenly ends.
It just ends …
