Leave me alone, I have paid my dues Guilty feelings and suffering are my dooms Living in the shadow fearing those who accuse My life has been a song of misery and blues
Leave me alone, what more from me do you seek? The crime has been done, on the strong and the weak Stop lynching me, blaming me, for I’m no longer a freak Your words are like the sword, killing me, constant critique
Leave me alone, I’m tired of this journey of the outcast Always accused, lectured, reminded of the days of the past For many years, I got punished by those toward me massed What would you hush you up? Electric chair, or being gassed?
Leave me alone, for you don’t really understand What I went through….. and still withstand Being labeled a loser, and a criminal of the land And from lecturing about morals, I am banned?
Leave me alone, and try to look into my eyes Or hear my heart, maybe you would hear the cries Of that past reminder, the looks, and the implies If only you can hear my prayers at night that reaches the skies
Leave me alone, your approval I seek no more I have found Allah that accepted me and more And found that someone that loved me like never before For I am no longer have to worry about the war That for many years agonized my soul, and my heart it tore
Leave me alone, or you know what, don’t Repentance to you, no, I don’t want To give me mercy, something you just can’t And your love, no, no, I think not.
