Classic Case – Goner lyrics

Convicted and I know I didn't do it
Most likely this will take a while
Depicted as a criminal influence
Innocently doing time
I'm a goner

Each question only leads to more confusion
I'm all alone here asking why
Now I am on the brink of execution
Where time stops and dies by my side

Now that the end is evident
I will retrace all the lines that I've crossed In innocence
I'm a goner

No witness could answer to the jury
The judge then sentenced me to die
Death is the only way of making restitution
For stealing what money can't buy

Now that the end is evident
I will retrace all the lines that I've crossed and make amends
For the faults of someone else I've said I'm innocent
But I'm doomed and no one will help I feel so desperate
And I swear I'm innocent
But now the end is eminent
I'm a goner
