about

A cheerful song about madness and abduction! Ransom is the first track off our upcoming album, In the Beginning- out May 12th.

lyrics

I don't even need the ransom
If you're gonna pay
Oh I don't even need your blessing
If I get my check at the end of the day
Oh oh oh oh
At the end of the day

I don't need all of the answers
If you'll set me straight
I don't need to lock you out
If you give me your set of keys
To the gate
Oh oh oh oh oh
To the gate
Oh oh oh oh

If you treat me like a treasure
That's how I'll behave
But as for all the rest you reap
I say to keep a closer eye
On your safe
Oh oh oh oh
On your safe
Oh oh oh oh

Try not to but it just won't steep
If I won't stop
You'll scold me
Minds erase
Fingers lace
The mission is complete

Cause I don't even need the Ransom if you're gonna pay
Oh I don't need to lock you out
If you give me your set of keys
To the gate
