from Culprit (single) by LOYAL WIFE



Written by DPJ
About the martyrdom of the prophet Joseph Smith in Carthage, Illinois. Released on the 173rd anniversary of his cold-blooded murder. Shame on Thomas Ford, Lilburn Boggs, Carthage Greys and the cowardly mob.



Where’s the golden book you hide
That you say you prophesied
I’m not a savior or an alibi
I need the former not the later kind

Where’s the stone that bends your eye
You say you read it line by line
And I’m not educated or divine
Took 90 days without a proper scribe

Culprit, let the truth confound the wise

Tar and feather whip and chain
Scar me for the rest of my life
Chip my tooth and slur my speech
But I will speak up every time

I’m like the lamb I’ll go to slaughter when it’s time

So how culpable am I
Exonerated of my crimes
I’m never guilty brother
Anywhere you preside

I’m like the lamb I’ll go to slaughter when it’s time
200 cowards painting faces in the night
Something is missing in your life
If you need mine

An unnecessary crime at a necessary time


An unnecessary crime
Hear them gathering outside
Cause a martyr has to die
Of an unnecessary crime
