When you see a big injustice
Will you disobey the law
Will you fight for any army
And turn your fingernails to claws
Try a little vengeance
Try because
Contemplation won't ever
Turn your fingernails to claws
Fingernails to claws
I know you see a peaceful vision
And though you understand
That cause
When the enemy won't listen
Turn your fingernails to claws
I've been on the wrong side
I've been Bad
I've been careful finding ways out
Every chance I had
Fingernails to claws
Act with all your passion
Find the beauty in the cause
Find the strength and volition
To turn your fingernails to claws
When rational is hopeless
And constructive thought is lost
Empathy is pointless
Turn your fingernails to claws
Fingernails to claws
