The Law (vom Album: Various Positions)

How many times did you call me

And I knew it was late

I left everybody

But I never went straight

I don't claim to be guilty

But I do understand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

Now my heart's like a blister

From doing what I do

If the moon has a sister

It's got to be you

I'm going to miss you forever

Tho' it's not what I planned

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

Now the deal has been dirty

Since dirty began

I'm not asking for mercy

Not from the man

You just don't ask for mercy

While you're still on the stand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

I don't claim to be guilty

Guilty's too grand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

That's all I can say, baby

That's all I can say

It wasn't for nothing

That they put me away

I fell with my angel

Down the chain of command

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

Anmerkung(en) zu dem Song:

Und auch zu diesem Lied sind zusätzliche Strophen bekannt:

Now the solitudes vary,

They go from nothing to loud

If you're buying lonely

Pick the one with the crowd

You can get solitary

But it is never your brain.

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

You can blame it on nature

Or you can blame it on God

You can say it's a creature

Just stepping out of the mud

But I ain't here cause a fossil

Has been found in the sand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

Well I've done lots of time boys

Now I know why

You can turn on a dime

But on a dollar you die

This will never make sense

To the fat of the land

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand

There's a Law, there's an Arm, there's a Hand
