Oh yeah we’re unfortunates
Combined with your throw away youth
He who hasn't broughten for ya
Don't matter if they do
But you never know them first
And we know that ain't true
Cause they say it's written for you
Don't matter what they do

But did you happen to see the paper today
See what them troubled boys have done
Another unidentified youth
Mistaken for something he'd never done

All you unfortunates
Feel dying with it get on you
You know they coming for ya
Don't matter what they do
Cause we know the vision saw you
And we going all them play
Yeah they say they only written
They say they know your name

But did you happen to see the paper today?
See what them troubled boys have done
Another unidentified youth
Mistaken for something he'd never done

Now keep going
Keep going
It's time to keep going/moving
It's time to move on

Did you happen to see the paper today?
See what them troubled boys had done
Another unidentified youth
Mistaken for something he'd never done

Yeah you know it sealed them way
It was all a lie
So get up get going
See what them troubled boys can see
‘Cause the future is all knowing
You got to close and too close you'll be
So get up get going
See what them troubled boys can see
'Cause the future is all knowing
Yeah two close yeah two ghosts you'll be
Cause the future is all knowing
Yeah two close yeah two ghosts you'll be

    General CommentSurprised there's no comments here.

    This song is about 3 people who were clearly falsely convicted for the murder and mutilation of 3 young children. One was given the death penalty and the other two remain in prison for life. Multitudes of people have protested this injustice, but nothing has been done for these poor people.
