Lyrics
Your criminal eyes, that see straight through
We criminalize - your kind of voodoo
Make me sell my soul for the easy life
Sell my mother, trade in my wife

Rough justice - alright - rough justice on the streets tonight
Rough justice - we're the chosen few
If you want to scream, if you want to fight
Better take it to the man with the big house - in white

It's rough justice
Your bleeding heart got a hold on me
Your criminal heart won't let me be
For finer feelings I didn't feel the need

When I'm dealing you'd better watch my speed
Get rough

Rough justice - alright
Rough justice - on the streets tonight
Rough justice - we're the chosen few
Rough justice - somebody loosened my screws

Vigilante man of the neighborhood
Well I ain't like Doris Day, and I ain't no Robin Hood
It's rough justice
Your criminal eyes - don't cut no ice

We criminalize - don't take no outside advice
It's a real cruel life when you have to lose it
It's a heavy knife, when you have to use it
It's rough justice - it's rough justice
