Burn, Burn, Burn the paper screamed out loud
Die, Die, Die, sang the voices in the crowd
Lock him up and throw him in a cell
He didn't really do it and you know full well

So, burn, burn, burn the papers screamed out loud
Die, Die, Die sang the voices in the crowd

[Chorus:]
And when it was over where did you go
To look at the photos of a dead hero

He was a victim of inhuman revenge
He was a scapegoat for political ends
And no one knows if he did it or not
They never thought of that when they tightend the knot

Burn, burn, burn the papers screamed out loud
Die, die, die sang the voices in the crowd
Lock him up and throw him in a cell
He didn't really do it and you know full well

He didn't do it, He didn't do it
He wasn't there but you don't really care

    I agree with oi-gr 100% yet on a deeper level it makes me look at others who have been wrongly accused and unfairly convicted and persecuted/ executed by whatever means. It means stop judging and make sure you get all sides of the situation before making a decision about someone

    Obviously, it's about the trial of a guy who was unfairly convicted to gallows(They never thought of that when they tightend the knot).
    The papers in the first line are probably the brief.And the Die, die, die, that the crowd sang seems to be the stance of the world against the guy.

    As regards to the line :"He didn't really do it and you know full well"
    i assume the guy is Sid Vicous(i'm not sure however)
