about

This is the true story of an innocent deaf man who has been in prison for 34 years. He was framed by his own siblings.

lyrics

Felix Garcia

Felix Garcia doesn’t know trees or flowers
Moon or stars, he’s chained to the hours
Nineteen years old, betrayed by blood
Arrested for murder and trusting too much

After 34 forevers he is still there
Like a moth, in a box
Looking, looking for the light
Fluttering, fluttering, fluttering against the walls
Fluttering, fluttering, fluttering, fluttering, fluttering against the walls

Felix couldn’t hear the conspiracy
To blame him for stealing the diamond ring
It was easy to frame a poor deaf kid
For shooting that dealer in his motel bed

CHORUS

Bridge: His sister Tina and brother Frank
Wove a web and washed their hands
Felix walked into their lies
Tangled up, stuck for life

Felix holds truth like a mother holds a child
Hoping through chaos it will somehow survive
To stand up tall for the world to see
For us to make sure the innocent are free

CHORUS
