Jabez on death row

Yeah, so I said "Bless me indeed"
A few sentences in a long string of names
Now I'm just a number in a nameless world
Because of something I may or may not have done

My territory's been expanded
To a twelve by twelve box with a hole in the door
But my name's on the front page
And on the bestseller list
So I suppose that counts for something

So much for the "keep me from evil" bit

I've had years to think
Years to pray years to ponder
Years to attempt to remember where I went wrong
I suppose my mother named me well

In a matter of hours
Despite the attorney's pleas
They'll put poison in my bloodstream
And my spirit will be free from this prison

So I suppose my prayer will truly be answered.
