Condemnation, tried
Here on the stand
With the book in my hand
Truth on my side

Accusations, lies
Hand me my sentence
I'll show no repentance
I'll suffer with pride

If for honesty you want apologies
I don't sympathize
If for kindness you substitute blindness
Please, open your eyes

Condemnation, why?
Because my duty
Was always to beauty
And that was my crime

Feel elation, high
To know I can trust this
Fix of injustice
Time after time

If you see purity as immaturity
Well, it's no surprise
If for kindness you substitute blindness
Please, open your eyes

Songwriters
Gore, Martin
