I am a man of conviction, I shattered these walls
Spent my life in a bottle, cut myself had to crawl
Stared down a barrel of a 45, dared the man on the other side
To have the guts to pull the trigger
I am a man of conviction
CHORUS
Convicted of loving one girl too much
Sentenced to live without her touch
Convicted of somehow forgetting God
Sentenced to life of hell on earth
And they ain’t coming back, I’ve never known either to lie
It wasn’t my intention, I am a man of conviction
A promise made a promise broken, I’ve left nothing uncertain
I took the lower road, my back bent to carry my load
I broke hearts along the way, made a fool of myself most days
It wasn’t my intention, but I am a man of conviction
CHORUS x2
No don’t you cry for me, I’ve made this bed where I lie
It wasn’t my intention, I am a man of conviction
It’s too late for intervention, I am a man of conviction
