Innocent

If you've come to give your blessing
I think your words will be a waste
I'm the poster child for Huntsville
Spent my whole life in this place
So slide those smokes between the bars
Give me something I can taste
Forget about the guard
Come close to my face

I was in the wrong place
Movin' at the wrong time
They say they knew me by my face
But I ain't done no crime
Twenty years and I don't know
Where all my chances went
To find somebody to call me
Innocent

Well, I've known the kiss of angels
Felt the devil's pull, and worse
I can recognize 'em both now
Is that a blessing or a curse?
What I've seen don't get me nowhere
Here I'm just a numbered shirt
Only killin' time
If it don't kill me first

I was in the wrong place
Movin' at the wrong time
They say they knew me by my face
But I ain't done no crime
You could knock this prison down and
It would not make a dent
In the soul that's no longer
Innocent

There ain't no new day
When you're inside
You're not lookin' for the truth
You just need an alibi
Can't clear your name
When they say you lied
I know, 'cause I tried

There's a tree out in the yard
We walk by it single-file
It's so dried out and decrepit
Looks like it's been dead awhile
But you cut into its branches
You'll see the sap is there inside
It's bustin' to get out
And baby, so am I

I was in the wrong place
Movin' at the wrong time
They say they knew me by my face
But I ain't done no crime
And now I'm reachin' through
The cracks in the cement
Lookin' for a way to come out
Innocent
