Wednesday’s Lyrics – Jailer by Asa

Wednesday’s Lyrics is back! 

I remember the first time I heard this song. I was on my way to a meetup and it came on the radio. The music struck me immediately and after a few times of hearing the song and digesting the lyrics, I realized how powerful they are; which made me enjoy the song even more.

Jailer by Asa

I’m in chains you’re in chains too
I wear uniforms and you wear uniforms too
I’m a prisoner,
You’re a prisoner too Mr Jailer

I have fears you have fears too
I will die, you sef go die too
Life is beautiful
Don’t you think so too Mr Jailer

I’m talking to you jailer
Stop calling me a prisoner
Let he who is without sin –
Be the first to cast the stone Mr Jailer, Mr Jailer Man

You suppress all my strategies
You oppress every part of me
What you don’t know,
You’re a victim too Mr Jailer

You don’t care about my point of view
If I die another will work for you
So you treat me like a modern slave Mr Jailer

You see, if you’re walking in a market place
Don’t throw stones
Even if you do, you just might hit
One of your own
Life is not about your policies
All the time
So you better rearrange your
Philosophies and be good to your Fellow man

I hear my baby say
I wanna be president
I wan chop money
From my government
What he don’t know
What he won’t know
What he can’t know
Jailer, Jailer oh
Be good oh somebody
Be good oh
Jailer, Jailer

    I’ve never actually heard Jailer on the radio, but I’ve probably listened to it a thousand times on my iPod. 🙂

      Hi Lauren, thanks for stopping by. I think I’ve only heard it on the radio maybe a half dozen times. I still listen to it pretty regularly. You know good music never dies.
