Jericho

Ruston Kelly

You can walk, walk to Bethesda

There’s no house on Mercy Street

You might get lost in the company of angels

Ignorin’ the stones tied around your feet

Yeah, you gotta try for somethin’

Bend your knee and fight for somethin’

Learn how to die for somethin’

So you ain’t livin’ life for nothin’

Rivers weren’t made for drowning

Souls were never made to fail

I raised Jericho around me

But these walls were built to scale

I framed a fortress ‘round my heart

Carved her name in the old front door

So she would know that love still stands

Here forever even when she’s gone

Love can be a heatwave

Love can be a cold rain

Shadows at play on the walls of your room

Rivers weren’t made drowning

Souls were never made to fail

I raised Jericho around me

But these were built to scale

Yeah, you gotta try for somethin’

Bend your knee and fight for somethin’

Learn how to die for somethin’

So you ain’t livin’ life for nothin’, no

Rivers weren’t made for drowning

Souls were never made to fail

I raised Jericho around me

But these walls were built to scale

These walls were built to scale

These walls were built to scale

Background

Ruston Kelly’s highly anticipated full-length debut “Dying Star” will be released September 7 on Rounder Records, and “Jericho” is the album’s lead track. Of the album, Kelly comments: “A lot of my music is focused on suffering, or trying to understand the human condition through the lens of suffering which probably sounds totally depressing, but it’s actually the flipside of that. Sometimes you’ve gotta go into that darkness — you need to get lost and then figure out for yourself how to find your way back. That’s the only way we can find pure joy, and really be thankful for the life we’ve been given.”
