Kick The Chair Lyrics

3. Kick The Chair (3:58)
Track rating :  96.3 / 100      Votes :  4     
Dawn breaks evenly today on the truth and the lie
All rise, court's in session, we're hanging someone high

Justice means nothing today
Now that the courts are for sale
Pick a crime from the menu
Pick a sentence and defend you
And pay up the down payment called bail
The system's for sale!

Kick the chair, the rope's tight
Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out
Friend or foe, I gotta hang 'em dead
Or they'll come back around

Kick it!

The court's wrong when it keeps track of victories and defeats
The press that never rest, just waits for somebody's soul they can eat

Justice means nothing today
Now that the jury's for sale
Guilty or not, the verdict's a lie
You're going to jail
The system has failed!

Kick the chair, the rope's tight
Just like one quick wrench, the tooth is out
Friend or foe, ya gotta hang 'em dead
Or they'll come back
