The Judge and the Jury

So you caught a glimpse

Of the face behind the mask

You had some visions in a crystal ball

Saw the chasms etched into someone’s palm

The hand was gripped so tightly ’round a gavel shaft

And the hammer strike

Drove me back down

“Right where I belong” (hahaha)

I couldn’t see you through the tears in my eyes

Hit the breaks in the headlights’ glare

At the last second

I turned around, you wouldn’t care

You’d only wonder what I’d been doin’ there

You are the judge

You are the jury

The verdict’s out and now I’ve got to face the fury

You are the judge

You are the jury

I’ve been convicted, now I’ve got to face the fury, hey, oh no…

I lie awake at night

In the calm before the storm

Burning my prayer flags to catch your eye

Sending signals that I never lost faith

But in the echoes of a flaming ghost

I heard you say

I heard the truth for what it was;

“YOU ARE GUILTY OF WHAT YOU ACCUSE!” Oh…

I couldn’t see you through the wind and the rain

Staring out across the lonely pier

At the last second

I held tight, you wouldn’t cry

You wouldn’t even want to say goodbye

You are the judge

You are the jury

The verdict’s out and now I’ve got to face the fury

You are the judge

You are the jury

I’ve been convicted, now I’ve got to face the fury, hey, oh no…
