DOWNLOAD MY NEW EP! https://itunes.apple.com/album/remedy...

This song is dedicated to anyone who's been manipulated by someone they thought they could trust.

I wrote "Hostage" this summer, and my friend Curtis was nice enough to record me singing it. Later, my friend Jayme suggested that I make a video for "Hostage" in an eerie location that matched the mood of the song, so we decided to do so at a place called Bloody Alley in Charleston, SC. Legend says that Bloody Alley is haunted! We filmed there at midnight and I was pretty scared haha. Luckily we didn't see any ghosts ☺

Thank you Kerry Furrh and Jayme Dee for filming this!

LYRICS
you hold me as your hostage
i'm such an easy catch
you don't need chains or blindfolds
to keep me in your grasp
i do just what you tell me
i wouldn't disobey
because if i displease you
your reprisal burns with hate

if i defy the part you're forcing me to play
if i confront you bout your twisted dirty game
if i refuse to feed your desperate greed for lies to build you up a cardboard castle
you'll see to it i have a price to pay

you know right where i'm weakest
you know how to bring me down
the moment that you're angered
you don't hesitate to let your fury out
you call yourself a Christian
you call yourself a friend
but friends and Christ are loving
and lord knows you never act like that

cause if i defy the part you're forcing me to play
if i confront you bout your twisted dirty game
if i refuse to feed your desperate greed for lies to build you up a cardboard castle
you'll see to it i have a price to pay

your shocking scheme the lies you breathe
your sick made-up reality suppress me more than chains would anyway
oh i'm your hostage

if i defy the part you're forcing me to play
if i confront you bout your twisted dirty game
if i refuse to feed your desperate greed for lies to build you up a cardboard castle
you'll see to it i have a price to pay
