This song is about The West Memphis 3. They were 3 men from West Memphis, Arkansas named Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin, who were tried and convicted for the triple homicide of 3 8-year old boys from the Robin Hood Hills in West Memphis. The victims, Steve Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore were reported missing on May 5 1993. The alleged ringleader Damien Echols was sentenced to death, while Misskelley and Baldwin were sentenced to life in prison (Baldwin without the possibility of parole). It is widely believed that the 3 were wrongfully convicted of the triple homicide, seeing as the investigation was plagued by negligent police officers who failed to secure the crime scene and stored evidence in grocery bags. The trial also lacked any physical evidence and presented the facts that the 3 men liked heavy metal music and that Echols had an interest in Wicca as evidence against them. The trial was documented in the movie Paradise Lost
, and several famous personalties have pushed for a retrial.
