Lyrics:

I often wonder why I sit and wait to die What have I done to justify the sentence they gave? Too many hours spent in darkness questioning... "How and why"? I can't remember many moments in the light This retribution has defiled me to no end An execution without merit looms ahead Tell me why! I was a boy who had to live his own way I never fit into the model they had designed I chose a path less taken I stood with others who had often felt the same We got stares from passersby Our dark attire seemed to frighten people away And when the three young boys died They pointed fingers and entangled us in a lie! No hope in sight [Chorus:] I sit here terrified! Can't someone try to bring the truth to light? Won't anybody open up their eyes? Before the three of us have lost our lives! Why was everybody so damn afraid? They blamed the devil for the heinousness of the crime And to justify their own faith We were labeled pawns of Satan for a time The three of us were attacked and disgraced For many hours we were questioned and someone lied One of us couldn't take it His simple manner was manipulated in kind Fear made him lie [Chorus] [Solo] Now I am terrified! Can't someone try to bring the truth to light? Won't anybody open up their eyes? Before the three of us have lost our lives! And Why? Can't anybody see through their disguise?! Only believe we didn't take their lives! And now the three of us have lost our lives I often wonder why I sit and wait to die What have I done to justify the sentence they gave? Too many hours spent in darkness questioning "How and why"? I can't remember many moments in the light This retribution has defiled me to no end An execution without merit looms ahead Tell me why

'I was a boy who had to live his own way
I never fit into the model they had designed
I chose a path less taken
I stood with others who had often felt the same

We got stares from passersby
Our dark attire seemed to frighten people away'
This fits so well to me and my two friends.
