 Written (by Peter Johnson) and recorded (by Chris Greacen) for the 
2015 Song-A-Day adventure

 It changes in your sleep
the border
One day you're in a peaceful world
of beauty
The border moves, moves itself
beneath you
Next day you're in a stampede
taking place in a tornado

The border goes from lyric to poetic
The border is destructive and frenetic
It speaks in tongues
that I don't want to understand
The border

In the end it breaks you
the border
In the years it takes you 
to escape it
you'll never never quite recover
drop everything
drop anything
just get away from the border

The border never recognizes the damage in it 
You can fight for your life, you'll never win it
let it go
let it find its own hand
find its own voice
find its own land
where it can be the border.
