Forgotten But Not Gone (Atrophy)

Talk about humanity, what's wrong and what is right You take a human being and strip them of their life A tormented soul, trapped and left to decay In a controlled environment to die in a demented way Death row, he's awaiting, time just drags by Gas chamber awaits for him to pay for his crime When will the madness end, will it be today What terrible thoughts living day by day The crime was committed, forever left condemned Left and forgotten, the fortune never ends Sentenced to death, delayed for seventeen years Left to go insane now death's his greatest fear 15 thousand dollars monthly that we pay To keep him alive, now that's insane Injustice prevails again, it's the American way No wonder we're in debt, why do we have to pay If the death penalty exists to make these convicts pay Kill them when convicted instead of awaiting To wait seventeen years is totally inhumane The crime has lost its meaning, it's ruthless to be so vain
