Riff: Bill Carter – “Anything Made Of Paper”

Jan 15, 2013

In the shadows of religion, some think we find the truth/But innocence is stricken without an ounce of proof

from Anything Made Of Paper lyrics by Bill Carter

One of the few numbers composed specifically for the film, this end credits theme was inspired by Echols’ answer to Carter’s question of what he could bring into Death Row. Despite being born out of desperate circumstances, the heartfelt country-blues ballad offers a sense of hope to his plight.
