Through laws and courts

I must fight

Where so-called saviours

Dismiss your plight

 

Just ticking boxes

They don't care

But on your scalp I've found grey hair

Ticked boxes won't change your fate

They will not act

Till it's too late

 

She has no say

She's just a child

They preach to me all through the trial

Your granted contact, your a good man

Said Biblically as they wash their hands

 

They heard your fears they're all on file

Where Angels weep

 

And evil smiles
