You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do
You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do

So here we are again, it's like dj vu
Everyone lookin' at me
Tryin' to work out if I've been tellin' the truth
The courtroom's the same, but the jury's changed
And the judge is a she, not a he
Still they all look the same to me, yeah

It's just like it was, when I was here before
'Cept my ex ain't here in the gallery showin' me support
And that breaks my heart, 'cause I love her no doubt
Still I know a song, I can sing if I ever get out
But the chances of that even with this new evidence
Comin' to light don't change the fact

An innocent man went down first time
Man, I'd be a fool to put my faith in them
Only to be misplaced again
I remember how my heart felt breakin' then
It don't wanna feel that hate again
Just do your worst 'cause it won't break again

You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do
You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do

Yeah, I've been through the wars, up in that jail
What you got to do is look at the scars
On my face to know that I've been through hell
But I'm still breathin', yeah, that's right I'm still here
I survived through the darkest days
In the darkest place, from my darkest fears

Ain't nothin' you can do to me
Ain't already done 'cept shootin' me
And people havin' a pop ain't nothin' new to me
That's what used to go on usually
When I stay too long in one place
Will I get this new face by many more fights?

How different would things be now
If I'd just made it home that night
Ain't even worth thinkin' about
What's done is done, you can't change the past

Just please stop torturin' me
And make a decision, that's all I ask
'Cause I'm ready to accept my fate
Whatever the outcome of this case
The only thing I can't stand is the wait
So hurry up already and decide today

You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do
You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do

So what you gonna do?
When you gonna make up your minds?
I've been here for hours now
And I still ain't got a clue what you got in line

Are you gonna send me back
Through the prison gates like you did before?
Or are you gonna set me free
And let me live my life and know the score?

I'm sick sittin' here listenin' through
This girl with the lies when I know the truth
And I always have, she has too
The only people left to convince is you

The jury's out on me, once again, what's new
And now I'm past carin' what fate they choose for me
Just do what it is you're gonna do and do it soon
So I can get up out this room

You can let me go, you can let me rot
Wait for parole, wanna do the rest of the years I've got
You can cut me loose, or you can bang me up
'Cause to tell the truth, I don't really give a fuck

You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do
You can set me free or bang me up
(Bang me up)
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do

You can set me free or bang me up
Just stop torturin' me, tell me
What you're gonna do, what you gonna do
You can set me free or bang me up
Just don't need me on a cliffhanger
