"Jailbird" as written by and M. Ward....
Jailbird, jailbird, singing through the wires
Cause his cage is closed and he's stuck inside
Said who's gonna hear my "Help me, help me" now?
Yeah, who's gonna hear my "Help me, help me" now?
Help me, help me, help me help me now

Hangman, hangman, knocking on the door
Says heaven can't wait to have you no more
So who's gonna hear your "Help me, help me" now?
Help me, help me, help me, help me now
Yeah, who's gonna hear your "Help me, help me" now?
Help me, help me, help me, help me now
Better go find another best friend somehow

Help me, help me, help me, help me now
Help me, help me, help me, help me now

Angel, angel, coming for me now
On eagle's wings, down from the clouds
Save my soul before they lay my whole body down
Save my soul before they lay me whole body down
Help me, help me, help me, help me now
So there's nothing but skin and bones hiding under a dead man's clothes
Six feet deep in a black box underground

Help me, help me, help me, help me now

    General Commenti am a huge fan of the new album. agreed, what makes jailbird stand out is it's refrain: Help me, help me, help me, help me, help me now. Great song.
