You are there with the gun in your hand,
He lay dead at your feet where you stand,
This is a situation I can only guess about,
What else can I do but give you benefit of the doubt?

You tell me it was murder, but you say it wasn’t you,
You’re the one with the gun in hand, what do I do?
Find the true killer before your time eventually runs out,
Find him because I have given you benefit of the doubt

Time is fading now,
You are next on his list,
Time is fading now,
He has a gun and it’s said he’s never missed

Chorus:
Run to the scene of the crime,
Find his trail and follow his steps,
Keep running, you’re losing time,
He’s behind you now,
Lookout he has the gun,
He knows you know so you better run,
Run and make your escape,
He’s watching you from behind,
Run away from him and be haste

He is following your footsteps to where you hide,
You quicken your pace, extend your stride,
He’s catching up; you’d better be quick,
You trip and fall as time goes tick, tock, tick…


Time is fading now,
You are next on his list,
Time is fading now,
He has a gun and it’s said he’s never missed

Chorus

This is your final hour,
You may not know,
This is your final hour,
He knocks you out with a blow,
This is your final hour,
Your hands are now tied,
This is your final hour,
At least you can say you tried


Time is fading now,
You are next on his list,
Time is fading now,
He has a gun and it’s said he’s never missed

Chorus

Now you lay there dying, you scream and shout,
It’s too bad I gave you benefit of the doubt
