NO COUNTRY

We want to give a shout out to our friend, John Mark McMillan and his song, No Country.

There are so many people around the world that feel as though they don't belong.

We hope this inspires you to extend a hand of compassion!

"No matter who you are, there has been a time when you felt rejected, neglected, or unseen. My greatest hope for this song is that it would strike a nerve in you - maybe in a place where you've felt rejected - and in that you could find compassion, solidarity, and the courage to open your heart to someone who isn't like you." - JMM

I feel the tremors, the rumors of war

Upon the surface of my door

And I’ve got no place to call my country

I’ve got no place to call my country anymore

I don’t have the tools to deal with this

I don’t have the drugs

And I’ve got no place to call my country

I’ve got no place to have my love anymore

Yeah, when the bomb went off

We were dancing in the kitchen with a neon cross

Yeah, baby I’m lost I never saw it coming

Never thought I’d wake up

With no place to call my country

I’ve got no place to call my country

My country

I know everyone of us are hypocrites

Still I never thought that it would come to this

No place to love, no place to exist

I’ve got no place to raise my kids

All of my reserves are compromised

You can punch a hole in all my alibis

I know that I’m wrong

But you don’t know you're blind

Do you see me

Do you see me tonight

Yeah, when the bomb went off

We were dancing in the kitchen with a neon cross

Yeah, baby I’m lost I never saw it coming

Never thought I’d wake up

With no place to call my country

I’ve got no place to call my country

My country

No place to call my country

I feel the tremors the rumors of war

Upon the surface of my door

Yeah, when the bomb went off

We were dancing in the kitchen with a neon cross

Yeah, when the call came back

I was standing in the shadow of a panic attack

Yeah, I don’t know where I’m at

And I never saw it coming

I never thought I’d wake up

With no place to call my country

I’ve got no place to call my country

My country

No place to call my country

My home

My home
