When lies serve as substitution
A new twist on an old solution
No cause no choice
They took your freedom away

The new rights gotta keep you guessing
A Quick close with a signed confession
No rights this fight
Is how you're gonna pay

A child's tear froma broken heart
Another family's ripped apart
And the streets are empty
Down in Uniontown
Just don't let them catch you out at night

Nobody gets to have it all
The lucky ones only take the fall
It's a game and they picked your name
And now you've been had

You're just a player in a house of cards
Pleading guilty to a lesser charge
You're no good to anyone
When you're doing time

It's hard enough to stay alive
Eighteen to twenty five
Another town's locked into a slow decay
With all it's young men they're locked away
