Innocence Accused

Defendant take the stand
Prosecutor commence
Answer in honesty...

Well honestly
Can you tell me?
You've never been
Where I've been?
Never seen
What I've seen?
You've never made
Any mistakes
And wanted
A second chance?
Honestly, can you tell me,
You're perfect?

Acting so high and mighty
Passing judgement
With no remorse
Ever thought it could be you
Taking the stand
Defending your innocence
With your fate already decided

When you're up on that seat
With hammer in hand
So quick to judge
So quick to decree
So quick to decide
They're guilty

But turn the tables
And see in honesty
People's true nature
When accused of guilty
Let's see you take the stand
So hesitant to speak
Look you're already sweating
Already twitching
Already second guessing

You condemn perjury
And sentence honesty
What's the point?
