The Lyrics

It seems that a lot of folks are getting convictions reversed these days where the Prosecution engaged in serious misconduct and went after the wrong guy and quite possibly KNEW it.
Throw away his whole confession
Had no lawyer when they questioned
Judge OK's his new petition now
Gets a retrial; and the case is old
Gets a retrial; evidence is cold

Throw away his whole confession
Needs judicial intervention
Sanctions on the Prosecution, now
Not a fair trial; witnesses cajoled
Gets a new trial; will the D.A. fold?

Innocent men land in cages
Paid informant's tale outrageous
Free on bail now earning wages
Throw away this bad conviction now

Throw away this bad conviction
Prosecutor's blind ambition
Put this man in this condition, now
It was vicious; all the lies they told
All the deceit; withheld facts, was bold

Innocent men land in cages
D.A.'s actions were outrageous
His response has been evasive
Fed's will now investigate him now

(Instrumental Break)

Throw away this false conviction
Must vacate this bad decision
Validate appeal's petition now
Finally released...
Finally released...
Finally released...
Finally released...
Finally released....
