Guilty even when innocent
The truth is public discretion
Media created nightmares
Who knew that life was so unfair?
Rumors spew from another mouth
They think they’ve got this figured out
No, they just want this done with
Don’t really care what the truth is
As long as there’s someone to blame
Just looking for someone to hate

You’re not at fault but they’re all against you
You’re not what they say but they’ll reshape you
Make you a monster; make you detestable
The lies they spread are uncontrollable
The worlds sold out and started following
How long ‘til angry mobs start the burnings?

They’ll stand you at the steak
And desecrate your name
Drag it through the mud
All of this because

They’re paranoid they panicked
And couldn’t let go
Just couldn’t let go

Accused of crimes you didn’t do
They know this but still finger you
Because you’re their only suspect
And they need someone to condemn
You’re the one the media named
So by the public you get shamed
Took what they heard made it the truth
Every lie tightening the noose
Supposedly you’re innocent
But that’s not public opinion

You weren’t at fault but they stood against you
You weren’t what they said but they reshaped you
Made you a monster; made you detestable
The lies they spread were uncontrollable
The world gave in and began following
It didn’t take long to start the burnings

They’ve stood you at the steak
Desecrated your name
Drug it through the mud
All of this because

They were paranoid they panicked
And couldn’t let go
Just couldn’t let go

But they let go
Of the stones in their hands
In sticks with flaming ends
The rope around your neck
With persecuting hands

They let go of their rage
They let it loose on you

Oh my God they let go
Of the stones in their hands
In sticks with flaming ends
The rope around you’re neck
With persecuting hands

My God they let go
They let it all come out
Unleashed all their rage
Let it loose on you
They let it out on you

They’ve stood you at the steak
Desecrated your name
Drug it through the mud
All of this because

They were paranoid they panicked
And couldn’t let go
Just couldn’t let go

But they let go
Oh my God they let go
On you
