Laying Down The Law

I'm laying down the law
Showdown in the northland
Just the whiff of corruption
Is the tip of the iceberg

Savor and sweet liberty
And there's trouble from the south
Shouting from the gallery
Now I find I've got to shut it out

I'm searching for a light
To kill my sense of fear
To break through darkened nights
And take me through the years

There's no need to tell you
What I think has gone wrong
There's grey clouds of dissension
Let it show, let it show a silver lining

Sweet blood on the razor
Is it poetry or politics?
Forget about the nightmare
I'll make it a dream that changes everything

I'm searching for a light
To kill my sense of fear
To break through darkened nights
And take me through the years

Sweet blood on the razor
Is it poetry or politics?
Forget about the nightmare
I'll make it a dream that changes everything

I'm searching for a light
To kill my sense of fear
To break through darkened nights
And take me through the years
