Just Tell Me Why

Random Favorites

Can you tell me why
We try to justify
And think it's right
To play God tonight
When so many
Who are on the inside
Do not deserve what's coming tonight
Those who are guilty but disturbed
Who need professional help
Instead of death row
And those who are innocent
Who deserve better
So much more'
With verdicts
Created out of emotion
Instead of fact
But somehow we
Just don't think about that
How can we ever be sure
We have it right
I would love for you
To justify
Playing God tonight
When we can never be truly sure
If we actually got it right
With that said
Think about it
While their selling it
Whether you really
Think it's right
Because too often
We don't get it right
And because of that oversight
Another innocent
Either suffers or dies tonight
