Prophet's Song
 By John Flynn


Call me Jonah for I too have been swallowed by a whale
They think they own ya when they got you locked inside their jail
When this world sees you only for the worst things you have done
It goes and feeds you to the monster called Leviathan

Leviathan, this wayward prophet’s song at least
will rise again from the belly of the beast

I fell when my crew gave me to keep from going down
And that’s when I knew I would have to learn to swim or drown
You turn to stone when you are robbed of every dream and wish
There’s no atonement in the rancid gullet of a fish

Leviathan, this wayward prophet’s song at least
will rise again from the belly of the beast

Resurrection means you make another choice
Tell Corrections this world’s gonna hear my voice

Like a comet I will streak across the firmament
The state will vomit and I will be spewed out on the cement
Where in the shadows I will seek some shelter from the heat
In secondhand clothes I will shout my lyrics in the street

Leviathan, this wayward prophet’s song at least
Shall rise again from the belly of the beast

Leviathan, the prophet's song has never ceased
To rise again from the belly of the beast

Call me Jonah I too have been swallowed by a whale
