Music: Jailer (Live Cover) by Rukky Otive

It feels like it’s been ages since I did my last live cover, so I am super excited to release a new one! In this video, I perform “Jailer” by Asa. “Jailer” is a song that explores the power play between the oppressors and the oppressed in society. You can watch the video below or on YouTube (scroll down to view the lyrics). Credits go to Promise Chime (on the keyboard), Favour (on the drums), and Uviboy (video recording).

Lyrics

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, but 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

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


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 jailer

Stop calling me a prisoner
Let he who is without sin
Be the first to cast the stone, Mr Jailer
Mr Jailer man
