The Word Justice (LP版) - Jackson Browne (杰克逊·布朗)

A man stands up before is god and country

 

Raises his right hand and takes an oath

 

Swears he has acted in the line of duty

 

And he more than anyone wants to tell the truth

 

But there is a need to keep some things a

Secret

 

Some weapons shipments some private wars

In the future democracy will be defended

Behind closed doors

 

Now the men of congress who convene to determine

If covert war is a business or a crime

Are the same men who routinely give their permission

 

For the shedding of blood in security's name

 

And there is a need to keep some things a

Secret

The names of some countries the terms of some deals

And above all the sound of the screams of the

Innocent

 

Beneath our wheels

 

Does the word justice mean anything to you

Are the features of a lie beginning to come through

 

In the streets of America the children are buried

 

Caught in an avalanche of weapons and drugs

 

They live and they die in the bowels of a

Business

That's disguised as a war between the crips and the

Bloods

 

And there is a need to keep some things a

Secret

The C I A deals protecting the source

And the government policies directly connecting

The drugs and our wars

 

Does the word justice mean anything to you

As the battlefield comes home and democracy falls through

 

I am waiting for the time to come

When the word will be real for everyone

 

And not just a word but a thing that can

Be done

 

Justice must be one

 

Justice

 

Justice

 

Justice

 

Justice

 

Justice
