"Ballad of Treason" as written by and Kai Welch Abigail Washburn....
This kiss is a crime, let's not waste time

The cover of night is breaking

We even the score, we capture five more

Make a forbidden offering



Our heads are two states, let's pull down the gates

Declaring freedom

Send out our armies, bring death to our colonies

Harmony drowns out the cries of our generals



Climb up to the tree top, I'll be on the mountain top

Looking for you across the valley

First word you heard, oh, the sky is on fire

Crying for the dying daylight

I need you, I need you, I need you



Bodies on pyres, waiting for fire

The judge and the generals, dangerous diction

The faithful assemble, the crowd starts to tremble

The cavalry arises and begins to fall



The treason proclaim, fires bursts into flame

Doom sows right the sparks in to the blue



Climb up to the tree top, I'll be on the mountain top

Looking for you across the valley

First word you heard was sky is on fire

Crying for the dying daylight

I need you, I need you, I need you



This world is a shackle, I shout to the crowd

"Bring down the walls of Jericho"



Climb up to the tree top, I'll be on the mountain top

Looking for you across the valley

First word you heard was the sky is on fire

Crying for the dying daylight

I need you, I need you
