Justice is a game that some may play

With instruments constructed yesterday

Nothing's new, by any means,

Played with rules and obscure scenes

While the shadows of the truth, slip away.

 

Justice is a concept and narrow thought,

It could be given, stolen, or bought.

Some are told what it should be

But their neighbors, they can't see

Weather it is really justice, or not.

 

One kind of justice seeks revenge for the wrongs

Then there's concepts that are written into songs

But being biased is in our nature,

We are just that kind of creature,

So justice, seldom, brings facts along.
