Comment: Jake and the Jackhammers was the college

band for which I was the keyboard player and singer.

I think this was our first original.




Rebel At The Door

by Matt Carter


He's at the door

hear him roar

pounding, banging at your core


He's moving about

Wants to get out

Pounding banging hear him shout


Are you gonna set him free?


He quickens the pace

Fills the space

Anger, hatred on his face


he can't abide

You're hands are tied

anger, hatred locked inside


Are you gonna set him free?


He's ready to start

tears you apart

burning bleeding in your heart


Tired of lies

tired of cries

burning, bleeding in your eyes


Are you gonna set him free?
