Mother Justice

Oh Mother Justice where’d you go
You let the lawyers and the judges steal the show
Laid down your scales, took off your fine dark blindfold
Now you try to see the future but the past’s not yet been told

Oh Mother Justice
Where’d you go
Was your price paid
Your price paid up in gold

What about the poor man
And the children in the cold
What about the masses
Left with nothing but their souls

Should we lead them
Should we bleed them
Should we just leave them alone
They may not be worth the effort, there’s no money in their bones

Oh Mother Justice where’d you go
You let the lawyers and the judges steal the show
Laid down your scales, took off your fine dark blindfold
Now you try to see the future but the past’s not yet been told

Oh Mother Justice
