Wrong Man

Album: Rapture of the Deep (2005)
  • I wasn't in the room when the action was going down
    I may have been there once but at the time I was out of town
    I'm seeing strange fruit, they're saving off with his head
    One way or another I'll end up dead

    You got the wrong man
    You don't understand
    You got the wrong man
    You got the wrong man
    I do what I can

    I plead not guilty to the charges you've laid out on your desk
    l know what you're thinking 'Oh yes, this is a DSF
    I think I'm prime ministerial material but I can't lie to you
    So I'm out of the running
    But from here in my cell I imagine
    Wouldn't that be something

    You got the wrong man
    You don't understand
    You got the wrong man
    You got the wrong man
    I do what I can
