about

Inspired by the Bob Dylan biography, ​'Time Out of Mind,'​ by Ian Bell. A motorcycle wreck changed Dylan's creative trajectory and in many ways his identity. Our song ​'Fugitive'​​was largely inspired by this concept of identity.‘​Fugitive’​ was produced and recorded by Zach Wiederstein and Joel T. Mosman at Stein House Studio in Arkansas City, KS. Stephen Pettyjohn of Ethereal Mastering in Sisters, Oregon mixed/mastered the track.

Their debut album ​High Sign, ​slated for release in Fall 2020, is about the power of perseverance and radical love as a means to overcome adversity. The music was created at Stein House Studio in Arkansas City, KS. Auxiliary instruments were also recorded at Mike McClure's Boohatch Studio in Ada, OK and at T. Hodge Lodge Studio in Shawnee, OK.

Fugitive by Oklahoma Uprising
Album: High Sign (2020)
Lyrics by: Joel T. Mosman
© 2020 Joel T. Mosman


Bobby's chasing down a dream
Cashing in on broken wings
Burning bridges over gasoline
Fifteen years or so before
He swore he'd never take that road
And now he's trying to keep from looking back

It’s like running from yourself
When all the things you felt
Are trying to hunt you down like you're a fugitive

Looking back you've seen it all
Met the queen you fought King Kong
Tried to outrun that old hurricane
But when you open up that book
And find the pages only half full
Now is your chance to write those lines

It’s like running from yourself
When all the things you felt
Are trying to hunt you down like you're a fugitive
You give it all that you can give

Telling tales and spinning lies
Coming up with alibis
Tell me what you trying to
What you trying to
What you trying to hide?

Broken bad you feel alone
You try not to let it show
But you can't hide a troubled mind
Just what's wrong with who you are?
There's different worlds in every star
So let that light shine through the whole universe

It’s like running from yourself
When all the things you felt
Are trying to hunt you down like you're a fugitive
May you live a thousand years
