He searched through his love like a thief on the run
But he's fresh out of tears and nobody has come

For his vision ain't good and his mind's disappeared
So justice has got to be done
And beauty is lying alone in the park
Where's her knight in white armor who rides a chrome ford
Justice would seem to be bored
A knife full of life penetrated the bait
And he thinks he'll get off ''cause he's sick, and stoned
And justice was made to be honed
And his lawyer is smiling one hell of a smile
While she's dying of grief he's defending his brief
And justice would seem to be cheap
Well I've searched through the falling, and I searched through the failed
But sleeping beauty is dead no use pricking her thumb
