Clarence

Clarence, I didn't know you

But now I've seen you on the tube

Shootin for the moon

While being eaten alive from the inside

 

Judge, You said the charges were untrue

And now its Hell you're going through

A dead man shot between the lies

A corpse with courage to stand his ground and fight

 

Justice, they gave you back your name

Shifted the blame

Was it all a frame

Or just presumption that carried the day

 

Clarence, you now know that truth

Sometimes has roots

In between the dark and the light

And changes with the passage of time
