The words “Get Born” are lyrics in the Bob Dylan song “Subterranean Homesick Blues”.
To us it means,receiving a new outlook on life, to start living, and let nothing hold you back. No one can tell you how to live your life, and eventually you have to let go, make the choices you want to make, and GET BORN.
