Awaken – Ted “Wizdom” Snider

Threatened, Attacked while the camera’s rollin’
Restrained, Beaten, even while recordin’
Detained, Arrested without an explanation.

Why won’t you tell me why you are here?
Where are you taking me? Why over there?

I live by myself, do you not hear me?
I am alone. Why won’t you believe me?

Shackled, Bleedin’, surrounded by the accusers.
Just cooperate and this’ll go easier.

Denied an ear. Now they won’t hear me.
No one to hear me. No one’ll believe me.

I didn’t do it, do you hear?
I didn’t do it. They don’t care.

Just cooperate and make this easy.
Just cooperate? No one believes me.

Why? The Law says so; because the Law says No.
The Law says So  The Law says No
The Law says So  The Law says No

Incarcerated now, given an ear
Someone to hear me. Someone to believe me.

There’s been a mistake. I didn’t do it.
Stop. I’ve heard that before. Just say you knew it.

Why? The Law says so; because the Law says No.
The Law says So  The Law says No
The Law says So  The Law says No

No contacts. No connections. No numbers.
  to my outside world. No numbers
  to my outside girl. No numbers
  to my outside circle.

Now they tell me my life is theirs to do as they please
No longer is my life to me, my existence as it once was
is no longer as it once was, no longer am I as I once
was, I am to be what the law makes me.
We will see  we will see  what the Law makes me.
