See I was in handcuffs
No one stood by my side
No one to help me prove my charge was a lie
While some prosecutor
Screams I'm a terrible guy
That I'm guilty and I deserve 25 for life
See I lost my temper
And the cop lost his cool
A whole can of pepper spray, man
Making me look like a fool
And he started stomping
As I was gasping for air
Already on the ground
Man I don't know
That fight don't seem fair

But with my pain came rage
A light so bright I feel blind
So I reached with my hands
And a rock is what I do find
He stopped for a moment, I gathered my strength
Just enough to swing quickly
And put the rock right through his face

And that's how it happened
How he met his fate
And how my left eye got burned out
By the pepper spray
Some called me a monster
Things got super intense
But I don't think I did nothing wrong
Your honor, I claim self defense

First they talked to his cop friends
And then they talked to his wife
They all said the same thing
He never hurt nothing or no one
In his whole life
They made it seem pretty obvious
That I was the one to blame
Even my public defender
Didn't have all that much to say

The jury comes back in
Trying to look them all in the eyes
Trying to make them feel like
Taking another life
That don't make taking the first one right
I hope they realize
I hope they truly understand
Just how sorry I am, things got so out of hand
