Sion Feat. Gary Essex (RPM)

A dramatisation of events from school.. hope ‘Shaun’ never hears this, and if he does, that he likes it in someway, and that things turned out alright in the end..

It was always rainin.
It filled him up
It summed it up
So perfectly
How nothing bright
Ever got through.

In the age of discovery
he found his way to drugs
From a tent, planned a robbery
And took a gun.
As he held up the van on the hill
The gun he held went off
And in the blink of an eye
All was lost.

None of them knew you Sion
None of them knew you the way we did
But everybody gotta have an opinion

I was there when he got sent down
He was a bad man then and he’s a bad man now
Make no mistake about him
If the devil cant change
What chance has a man?

I was there when he got sent down
He was a bad man then and he’s a bad man now
Make no mistake about him
If the devil cant change
What chance has a man? X2

Well the authorities
They saw their side
And having heard what they said to him
The judge retired.
High jinx with a loaded gun
How could anyone have known?
No one there saw him crossing himself
Before the book was thrown.

None of them knew you Sion
None of them knew you the way we did
But everybody gotta have an opinion

I was there when he got sent down
He was a bad man then and he’s a bad man now
Make no mistake about him
If the devil cant change
What chance has a man?

I was there when he got sent down
He was a bad man then and he’s a bad man now
Make no mistake about him
If the devil cant change
