My lesson is learned
So this I do know
My freedom is earned
So please let me go

Framed for a crime
I did not commit
Jailed for some time
And so here I sit

Sentenced to the earth
And condemned to die
Whatever it is worth
And regardless of why

Kept in the dark
Blinded by the light
The outlook is stark
The truth out of sight
