Riff: Tonto’s Giant Nuts – “Damien Echols’ Death Row Letter Year 16″

Jan 15, 2013

I can’t remember what it’s like to walk as a human being anymore

from Damien Echols' Death Row Letter Year 16 lyrics by Tonto's Giant Nuts

Seven years on from the letter Rollins’ narrated, Echols opened up about the hellhole he had spend his whole adult life in with another diary entry. The sense of despair is palpable as Johnny Depp tells of the squalid living conditions that couldn’t be further removed from a Hollywood star’s.
