THE GREAT CONTROVERSY, 2013

Savanna

 

Swear the truth and nothing but

is what the bailiff said

shortly before they asked me

if I shot that boy in the head

 

well an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth

is what my bible read

To tell you the truth I don’t feel bad

for doing what I did

 

This ones for Savanna, my little darling girl 

i’m sorry I wasn’t there for you when he took you from the world

but baby he got what was coming, daddy’s bullet to the head

and I hope the lord forgives me for doing what I did

 

I’m here to tell the jury and this court

my confession won’t take long

I know your pressed for time so i’ll make it short

yes sir, I understand right from wrong

 

I was the one the tied his hands

yes, I was the one that killed that man

if it had been your daughter that he raped

well I guess you’d understand… yes I guess you’d understand

 

This ones for Savanna, my little darling girl 

i’m sorry I wasn’t there for you when he took you from the world

but baby he got what was coming, daddy’s bullet to the head

and I hope the lord forgives me for doing what I did
