I was just a kid when I heard it on the news
I heard you'd been accused up in West Memphis

Like most I assumed that justice would be served
You'd get what you deserved and that you deserved it

Damien, did the devil make you do this
Did they see right through your best defense

You were just a kid when they locked you in that cell
They could have burned you at the stake, it would have been more fitting

There was no proof, there was no motive
There was only fear

Damien, they say the devil made you do it
They say they saw right through your best defense
Were you sitting in your room just listening to Metallica records
When the cops came to take you were you surprised

In this town of Romans you are the chosen one
Scheduled to be a martyr for all the bastard sons
For the disenchanted outcasts, the punks and the freaks
For all those black t-shirt wearing kids like you or like me

Damien, they say the devil made you do it
They say they saw right through your best defense
Were you sitting in your room while all the boys were outside playing
When the cops came to take you were you surprised

Damien, did the devil make them do this
Can you see right through their best defense
If they strap you to that chair could you find it to forgive them
For the narrow minded bloodthirst of this town
