I saw your picture on the late night news 
I heard them call you a monster 
a mad man, too. 

In your face, 
I saw no trace 
of the boy I once knew 

No one heard your cries 
so now we sigh 
and wonder why...... 

Maniacal rage 
simmered with age 
no one looked at the gauge 

From the depths of your madness 
I saw a soul drowned in a sea of sadness 
innocence beaten, stolen from you
