I come from a place
Run by a man named Mr. Paige
Took everything and he wanted more
A gun and a knife and he used them both

He'd smack ya in the head in public
He'd kick ya down and he'd think nothing of it
Keep your head down, swallow your pride
If you wanna live to see the night

And I guess I had my fill
Of praying from the valley to the top of the hill
And even though I got away
I couldn't shake Mr. Paige

And I've fulfilled all my desires
I couldn't put out the fire
Things going in my head
That I need to put to rest

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Jack London been giving me a call
And I'm done fallin'

So I could take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Swim in the Peace River for more
Oh ho, darling

Packed my bags and went
To a place I promise I'd never been
Coming from a cowardly stance
It turned me to a cowardly man

And y'all wouldn't believe what I've seen
Mr. Paige, he was broke at the knees
Somebody so brave and strong
Just turned weak and wanting

The fear, it disappeared
And the hate, it followed it
Could the place it occupied
Be replaced by love and light?

So I will
Take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Jack London been giving me a call

I'm done fallin'
I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Swim in the Peace River for more
Oh ho, darling
