I must have something with the death penalty. I wrote Judgment Village as a symbol to show that people can sit for weeks on end without being guilty, only to die in jail (I have always thought that the length of jail sentences they give these days are absolutely ridiculous - people shouldn't waste away in jail for stupid crimes if they're not bad people) and this one goes to show that sometimes, it is a good thing when people are killed for their crimes. The perspective of a terrible person awaiting death in the electric chair.

A man
Who sits upon this throne
And stares in to the eyes of his peers,
Knows not of pain,
Knows not of love,
Knows not of sorrow.
A man
Sitting upon this throne,
Knows of chaos,
Knows of relentlessness,
Knows all too well of violence.
A man
Who is seated upon this throne,
Is not human.
Is not sane.
Is surely not trusted.
A man
Who has been placed upon this throne,
Is evil.
Is a devil in a common guise.
Is a living bearer of pain upon others.
A man
Who is sits upon this throne,
Will not live to stand again.
