"Innocence" as written by and David/donegan Draiman....
Who is innocent?
No one is innocent?
Who is innocent?

Who is innocent?
No one is innocent?
Who is innocent?

Who is innocent?
Is it relevant in the world today?
I shake my head in disbelief

The killer walks again
Freed by evil men
And their dark charade
This can't be happening

A mother's selfish pride
Her child's homicide
Can she be to blame?
The suited vulture's circling

A father's cruelty
A murdered family
Is the world insane?
They're defender's ready to
Embrace their lies
And their devious smiles

Your corruption is like a cancer growing inside
You owe the world an apology
You've been taught all your life
That truth is easy to hide
You face your judgment another day
And suffer eternally

Who is innocent?
No one is innocent?
Who is innocent?

Presumed innocence
Justice fails again
In the masquerade
A battered woman trembling

Her lover drunk again
When will the torture end
In the web of shame?
Is death the only way?

A child victimized
The crime politicized
For the councilor's gain
The rabid media congregates

His tortured memories
The pervert's fantasies
Is the world insane?
A parasitic devastation seen
On your T-V screen

Your corruption is like a cancer growing inside
You owe the world an apology
You've been taught all your life
That truth is easy to hide
You face your judgment another day
And suffer eternally

False defender, burn forever
False defender, burn forever
Cold and spineless, have you no soul?
Wicked-minded, out of control
And guided by their hunger
They will find new ways to betray us

Your corruption is like a cancer growing inside
You owe the world an apology

You've been taught all your life
That truth is easy to hide
You face your judgment another day
And suffer eternally

Who is innocent?
Is it relevant in the world today?
I shake my head in disbelief
Presumed innocent
Justice fails again
In the masquerade
Has the whole world become insane?

    My InterpretationThis song seems to mean a lot of different things. But I think that it's mainly talking about all the corrupt attorneys in the world who defend and free murderers and rapists. Also, it's about the media and how they publicize horrible things like murders or things like the shooting in the elementary school in Connecticut hence the lyrics 'The parasitic devastation seen on your TV screen.' Also to a certain extent in talks about just bad people in general and all the criminals and murderers in the world... The world has definitely gone insane.

    General CommentI agree but I don't think it is just about the lawyers. I think he is talking about the legal system and the media as a whole.

    My OpinionTo answer the question, "Has the whole world gone insane?", I really do think the world is insane sometimes.

    General CommentThis song is about corrupt attorneys and lawyers that let molesters and murderers walk free. Plain and simple.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about attorneys and lawyers who blatantly lie to the media, themselves and in the court to gain popularity, money and credibility and that they'll end up burning in the depths of hell.

    General CommentI agree with both of the people above me. I think that Dave is singing about lawyers, attorneys, and the government in general who hide the truth.

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure the song is about humanity and how each of us has done something that corrupted us. Nobody is innocent and nobody ever will stay innocent
