There's a bunch of sex offenders living down the street from me
But I guess if they've found forgiveness in the law
Then there's probably some hope for me

I've always known my right from wrong
I just was born with a busted key
And every time I tried to pick that lock, it seemed
The devil was the only friend who would help me

I wished I may, I wished I might
But all my wishing only brought me grief
'Cause no matter how hard I'd fight it, my poor heart
Only wants the things that are worst for me

But everywhere I go
You shake my hand like you don't know
Everywhere I go

Oh, I wish someone would light a candle that could
Burn bright enough for me
Oh, I wish someone would hold my shoulders
'Cause my knees keep locking up
Each time I start praying

Sometimes I think about the sex offenders
And I wonder what they think of me
I wonder if they stare at me and wonder
If I truly am as good as I sure do seem to be

But maybe there's a certain type of darkness
All the dark ones have the power to see
So maybe they all lock their doors at night
Because they're living down the street from me

Oh, they're living down the street from me
