Jericho

You were a leader all the people down at your feet
Up on the ceiling so deceiving—charismatic
With subtle eyes, with subtle eyes—cinnamon girls

End of your season reputation’s hanging—deceased
Cut into pieces got the media searching for leaks
With shutter eyes, with shutter eyes flashing you down

Everybody wanted
Everybody wanted
Everybody loved you, Jesus Christ

Now that your dirty deeds find you home
Your walls were cracked and weak Jericho
Seems what we couldn’t see is who you used to be
So now you’re on your own

The night receding, ghosts are breathing, fires are lit
Open, revealing, shady dealings—harrowing shit
With sunken eyes, with sunken eyes
Struggling to swim

Bye, seems your life was just a lie
I keep hearing bout the 1-2-3-4
1-2-3-4-5

And I can see you tumbling down—oh my
Yeah, I can see you tumbling down—oh my god
Suddenly, suddenly, you aren’t who you used to be
Suddenly you slipped

You were a leader all the people down at your feet
Up on the ceiling so deceiving—charismatic
Your filth secrets did unseat you—sudden defeat
You had it all, you had it all
And it’s true that you used to mean more to me
