Designing your own laws to live by;
You redefine crime
So other men are hung
When they donâ€™t bend
To your will,
And felonies are no longer wrong
To you, but merely tools
For establishing your authority.
The â€śgreater goodâ€ť has become the rule,
The greater good for you, that is;
Justice is just a game
You play to win more favor,
Rewarding those who kiss your hand
And scourging those
Who look at you
The wrong way.
Your iron fist is not a tool
To make the people safe;
It is a rod to beat the people
A chain to keep them begging
At your heels.
But your redefinition of crime
Is just a faĂ§ade;
Your games wonâ€™t change gravity
To make the planets orbit you.
Your iron fist will never twist
The hand of God!
Your felonies will chain you;
The scourging of the peasants
Stripes your soulâ€”
Gravity will pull you down
As it always has before.
