DISTURBED


3 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

And 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 three young boys died

They pointed fingers and entangled us in a lie!


...No hope in sight.....


I sit here terrified! (Terrified!, Terrified!)

Can't someone try to bring the truth to light? (Bring it to light!, Bring it to light!)

Won't anybody open up their eyes? (Open your eyes!, Open your 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 followers 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 time....

Fear made him lie....



Now I sit here terrified! (Terrified!, Terrified!)

Can't someone try to bring the truth to light? (Bring it to light!, Bring it to light!)

Won't anybody open up their eyes? (Open your eyes!, Open your eyes!)

Before the three of us have lost our lives!



Now I am terrified! (Terrified!, Terrified!, Terrified!)

Can't someone try to bring the truth to light? (Bring it to light!, Bring it to light!)

Won't anybody open up their eyes? (Open your eyes!, Open your eyes!)

Before the three of us have lose our lives!

Can't anybody see through their disguise?!

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

And execution without merit looms ahead

Tell me why!

This song WAS made for the West Memphis 3. And yes NEO, the 3 accused were accused of satanic killings. BS of course.

This song seems like it was made about my nephew that was murdered in 1993 and the ppl they call wm3 were to blame... I dont believe they did it, and have spent 18 years in prison for nothing!
