Produced/Written/Performed by Kai Straw


May rain pour
and bring me outside my home
To chase hurricanes and boast
That I've seen eyes inside these foes
of planes, champagne and roads
That I decline my life as some simple insult
To time

So here's the melody, I'm Jericho

Now, if it's treasonous to wreck these walls then
Hang me too
I'll pay my dues
I'd rather hang here from my head and neck than
live inside abused
So tie the noose

May lakes overflow
And may I sail my house, and float
through states, like a freight of coal
and change the home I call my own
to just my skin and bones
and as escaping, watch myself unfold
Like all those stories we're told
or those we wrote
while wishing for something more

Or I will just fly away

And yeah, it's treasonous to wreck these walls and
they'll hang you too
in plain view
But we'll be hanging there, all caught up in the end,
As slaves to who?
The hangman knew

If they let me drop
They'll envy how free I've become
