“WM3”

A song about the West Memphis Three. My personal feeling on the subject is not that they are innocent – I just don’t think they were given a fair trial to know for sure. My gut feeling is they didn’t do it. I just don’t see how it was possible.

WM3

Three dead – No evidence who and how and
They sit – Beaten to a pulp in the river bed and
Someone – Unleashed all their rage upon those
Three boys

The town – They’re screaming out “we want justice
Find those – Who would dare to take
our children from us”
And so – The police trick a teen into confession
In West Memphis

Lies. No justice. They’ll make the case fit.
Guilt before you’re innocent.

And it’s all just a pack of lies
And the people start to realize
That the case was swayed in the wrong direction
Some motherfucker getting off on oppression
But the papers print the headline
“Three Kill Three in a Cult Related Joyride”
Their locking up the teens
and their going to make them stay
And they couldn’t catch the killer
but someone’s got to pay

Lies. No justice. They’ll make the case fit.
Guilt before you’re innocent.

So where has all the truth and justice gone?

It’s done – The courts release their verdict
Convict – Guilty of murder in the first degree and
They’ll serve – Life in prison plus forty years and
A death sentence

LIES!

Lies. No justice. They’ll make the case fit.
Guilt before you’re innocent.

Where has all your truth and justice,
your truth and justice
gone?
