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
