A little girl lost, her world full of pain
He said it feels good, she gave him her vein
The dope made her numb and numb felt like free
Until she came down, down, down to a new misery

A junkie, a whore living for the next high
She'd lie cheat and steal, she forgot how to cry
Wide awake for two weeks, shooting heroin then speed
When she killed in cold, cold blood all she felt was her need

It's an eye for an eye, now you're gonna die
A tooth for a tooth, it's your moment of truth
There's no mercy here, your stay is denied
Go on and pray, pray, pray, there's mercy in the sky

Alone in her cell, no dope in her veins
The killer'd become, little girl lost again
She fell to her knees, she prayed she would die
On the cold cement floor, she finally cried

And love came like the wind, love whispered her name
It reached through and held her, lifted her pain
Fifteen years on death row, her faith deeper each day
Her last words were, I love you all
Good-bye, Karla Faye

Now it's an eye for an eye and you're gonna die
A tooth for a tooth, it's your moment of truth
There's no mercy here, your stay is denied
Go on and pray, pray, pray
