Justice In A Cradle

 

Strong soap and lots of hot water

Behind my ears pound by pound

Before my eyes one moment to moment

Pages rockin' justice in a cradle

 

Stingin' knives for skillful good reason

Lovin' sweat on shiny metal tables

Stayin' life torn slow from sinkin'

Pages rockin' justice in a cradle

 

            Starch my shirt and raise my heart

            Missin' faces blew outta paintin'

            Black and white ain't enough to cover

            Pages rockin' justice in a cradle

 

Catchin' hell payin' for answers

Skinny arms now wrapped around a rainbarrel

Pourin' slaughter for a swiss chocolate camel

Pages  rockin' justice in a cradle

 

(Chorus)

 

Strong soap and lots of boilin' water

Poundin'  moments rockin' outta slaughter

Pages tearin' justice from the cradle

For the growlin' belly of the swiss chocolate camel

 

(Chorus)

 

Unleash my eyes away from the belly

Pry my arms far far from the rainbarrel

Spit in the eye of the swiss chocolate camel

Pages rockin' justice in a cradle

 

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
