Walkin' the green mile in the Mile High
"Martinez, death sentence...tell your people goodbye"
I see raging gray waters under the bright blue sky
as I stand before judgment, not ready to die...
Shaking and scared, unable to run
I cried out for mercy...someone...anyone...
as a book was presented labeled Volume 1
and in it was recorded every wrong I'd ever done
Wrongs against my family, wrongs against my friends
The dirt I did towards strangers, never making amends
The list goes on and on though Volume 1 never ends
and I was guilty of them all...as my soul descends
"Michael Martinez, how do you plead"
"Insanity, Father, the world planted a seed"
"It drove me mad for the lust and for the evil and the greed"
"Yet I stand guilty against the laws that you decreed"
I was guilty towards the grace that I received
and guilty towards the love that I deceived
but Christ interceded...I was redeemed, I was retrieved
He said "You did as I asked, child; you loved me back because you believed"
