How Many

How many
Innocent lives
Are you going to avoid
Being held accountable for
Being sentenced to death
Not always a reason for
I can't take much more
The blatant lies
The guilt in your eyes
All of us left wondering why
Why do the ignorant
Get to choose who dies
Tell me how is that right
Yet it happens
All too often
The actual guilty
Get off for free
While the wrongly accused
End up six feet deep
Yet still we just don't see
Not everyone sentenced
To death is guilty
And for the innocent ones you kill
Not a tear do you spill
You know it's wrong
And I just wonder
Where this ignorance came from
But after all is said and done
Against you we will still
Stand strong
