Ballad Of Treason (Abigail Washburn)

This kiss is a crime Let's not wast time The cover of night is breaking They even the score We capture five more Make a forbidden offering Our heads are two stakes Lets pull down the gates Declaring freedom Send out our armies Bring death to our colonies Our harmony drowns out the cries of our enemies Climb up to a treetop I'll be on a mountain top Looking for you across the valley Birds pull you higher while the sky is on fire Searching for the dying daylight I need you, I need you, I need you ((Our bodies are pyres Waiting for fire( The judge and the generals Claim jurisdiction (The faithful assemble The crowd starts to tremble( The gavel it rises And begins to fall(( Treason proclaimed Pyres burst into flame( Two souls ride the sparks Into the blue ((Climb up to a treetop I'll be on a mountain top Looking for you across the valley Birds pull you higher while the sky is on fire Searching for the dying daylight I need you, I need you, I need you ((This world is a shackle Let's shout til it rattles( Bring down the walls of Jericho Climb up to a treetop I'll be on a mountain top Looking for you across the valley Birds pull you higher while the sky is on fire Searching for the dying daylight I need you, I need you
