"Jailer" as written by and Asuquo....
Am in chains you’re in chains too I wear uniforms, you wear uniforms too
I'm a prisoner, you’re a prisoner too Mr Jailer

I have fears you have fear too I will die, you sef go die too
Life is beautiful don’t you think so too Mr Jailer

Am talking to you jailer Stop calling me a prisoner
Let he who is without sin be the first to cast the stone Mr Jailer

You suppress all my strategy
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 threat me like a modern slave Mr Jailer

You don’t care about my point of view
If I die another will work for you
So you threat me like a modern slave Mr Jailer

If you 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

I hear my baby say I wan be president
I wan chop money
From my government
What he don’t know
Be say Mr Jailer

    Song MeaningShe is talking about our businesses, government, laws, and policies.

    Her prison is her cubical, her jailer is her boss
    - She doesn't understand how this came to be, feeling like she is less than another human who's not much different from her. Since they work in the same place, wear the same attire. she knows they are in the same prison to begin with, its their job.

    "i have fears...you die too." - talks about how human they both are not much different

    Than she talks about how she is being suppressed by her boss, but he is being suppressed too and then she warns her boss not too treat everyone the same. In due time someone else who is greater than him/her will come by and do the same to him.

    Then she is talking about her baby wanting to be president. She is referring that the ultimate suppressor is the government.
