Damien Echols Death Row Letter Year 16 Lyrics


by Tonto's Giant Nuts feat. Johnny Depp, Nick Cave & Warren Ellis. From West of Memphis: Voices for Justice.


Today the guards made me bleed again
They chained my feet so tight I could barely move
I bleed through my socks
Last month it was my left ankle
Today it was the right
When I wash, the soap burns like fire
But I have to keep my ankles clean
Because I donít have any alcohol or peroxide
Nothing to kill the bacteria or infections
And this place is filthy

I canít remember what itís like to walk as a human being anymore
My cell is so small that I can only take two steps
Anytime Iím brought out, however briefly or infrequently
I have chains on my hands and feet
As well as guards hanging on me
Been well over 16 years since Iíve actually walked anywhere
Sometimes I still canít wrap my mind around that
Iím working on my 17th year now
There were times when I thought
ĎSurely someoneís gonna put a stop to this
ĎSurely someone is gonna do somethingí
But they never do
Time just rolls on, itís insanity

I am truly amazed at what theyíve been allowed to get away with
And for how long
Ah well, does no good to dwell on it
Either I waste my energy by focusing on things I cannot change
Or I conserve my energy and apply it to small things I can change
Thatís what the I Ching calls the taming power of the small
