Forensic Evidence

Forensic Evidence

Stiff Little Fingers

You got the lawyers and establishment
You got the proof
You got public opinion
And it's all the truth
You got first rate witnesses
Straight from the scene
So the only person guilty
In this court is me

You've got forensic evidence
That never lies
You got someone who says
I'm guilty by my eyes
You got lie detectors
That you never use
But I'm the only person here
Who knows the truth

But you never hear my voice
Never listen when I talk
Made your mind up in advance
And I'm going to take that walk

Chorus:
You based your case on circumstance
That's all it was and ever will be
And I never stood a chance
The old boy network's stronger than me

My friends and relations
Never gave up hope
That one day you'd listen
And admit you're wrong
But the old school system
Turns another blind eye
And I'm so unimportant
That I might as well die

And you never hear my voice
Never listen when I shout
You put me in here long ago
And I'm never getting out

(Chorus x 2)

Now the truth has been unearthed
And opinion moves my way
You can't hold me in this prison cell
Not even for another day

And you have to hear my voice
Have to listen when I scream
And yet I wonder how you sleep
But if you do I hope you dream
