Scott Stanton says...

'One o'clock in the morning, when you came knocking on my door a groaning, with no clothes on and looking like you were dead, you were covered in blood from head to toe, had no idea on where to go, and it took me a while to make out the words you said, you said a fight broke out in the car and your boyfriend left you to die on the river bed, so you followed the stars up in the sky, through the path to my back door they led..So now I think I got a job to do, you know you're covered in mud and cuts and bruises, well I hope he's ready for the shit I'm about the stir, I know I can't stand a man, to the woman he loves he would raise his hand, and take his frustrations out on her, and I ain't even gonna lie, well I killed him slow and I tortured him for sure, but you need to be my alibi and make up what we did and where we were..I know it's wrong to kill, but I don't do it no one else will, and I know it's wrong to lie, but a man like that don't deserve to live, that man deserves to die.'
