lyrics

MAKING A MURDERER

You sit there in front of me
Making me say things that I don’t wanna say
Force feeding words into my mouth
To sway it the way you want it to sway

Cast judgements
Put me on TV
The world thinks I’m guilty now
Like you wanted me to be

What happened to innocence
until proven guilty?
You have me locked in shackles
Before they’ve even thrown away the key

Look ma, they’ve put me on TV
The world thinks I’m guilty now
Like they wanted me to be
Like they wanted
Me
to be

Im worried, you’ve trapped me
You’ve got your proof
and you won’t ever set me free
Framed, defamed,
Lies won’t go away
You’ve made it your game
Only it’s my name
And my life
And you’ve taken it from me

Snippets of Police interview with Brendan Dassey:
I’ve got to believe in you,
and if I don’t believe in you,
I can’t go in to bat for you.
Okay, tell us what happened
Your mum said you’d be honest with us
And she’s behind you one hundred percent - no matter what happens here
It’s what she said
‘Cause she thinks you know more too
We’re in your corner –
You know, obviously, that we’re police officers? Okay?
And because of what you told us,
We’re gonna have to arrest you.

I missed most of my school years
You were the bully who had a taste of power
You delighted in coercion
You liked to play the game and I didn’t

Pass judgements
Put me on TV
The world thinks I’m guilty now
Like you wanted me to be
Like they wanted
Me
to be

Im worried, you’ve trapped me
You’ve got your proof
and you won’t ever set me free
Framed, defamed
Lies won’t go away
You’ve made it your game
Only it’s my name
And my life
And you’ve taken it from me

It’s my life and you’ve taken it from me
It’s my life and you’ve taken it from me
