lyrics

Verse 1
Been starin' at your wanted poster
For what will be the last time
With every beat the moment's nearer
You'll be behind bars for life
Waiting with revolvers loaded
The seconds tick by oh so slow
Across the town a car gets stolen
But there's bigger fish in the sea

Chorus 1
And the rain starts fallin'
Clouding out the fading daylight

Verse 2
Dive into a darkened alley
When you see the shadow
A .38 unloads before me
But I've got you firing blind
Underneath a lonely streetlight
I can see hot metal shinin'
The barrel spins and he's reloaded
Not going quiet this time

Chorus 2
Still the rain keeps coming
Bullet casings fall like water

Chorus 3
When the guns fall silent
I'll see you live to stand on trial

Verse 3
Sit up on the stand Miss Martin
And raise up your right hand
And paint a picture, can you tell me?
Where did you last see your man?
When I said "no further questions"
I knew that I finally had you, but
Deliberation's dragging onward
Something is just not quite right

Chorus 4
The word "acquitted" rings out
You've had this whole thing rigged from the start

Outro
If their justice won't hold..
I'll make my..
Own
