Rally Call

Album: released as a single (2020)
  • I'm in the fields
    My body's broke, my spirit is tired
    I need relief
    But your god ain't the one who's taking me higher

    My sovereignty, my way
    Lord jesus forgive me.
    Come walk with me
    Outgrown your skin
    Owe nobody no favors

    There's a road where we're walking on thunder
    Where we all go deliver ourselves
    We lay down by the trees we hung under
    So we own every part of our self

    Get off your knees
    Get rid of those papers

    The caged bird sings
    An ancient song he's almost forgotten
    Did you clip your wings?
    And take your place among the downtrodden?

    Our children they know that
    The system is broken
    I have a dream
    I'm here to stir the pot of commotion

    There's a road where we're walking on thunder
    Where we all go deliver ourselves
    We lay down by the trees we've hung under
    So we own every part of our self

    You call this free?
    Still looking for saviors
    Get off your knees
    And get rid of those papers

    You call this free?
    Still looking for saviors
    Get off your knees
    And get rid of those papers

    (improvisation)

    Get off your knees
    Get rid of those papers
    You call this free?
    Still looking for saviors

    Get off your knees
    get rid of those papers
