Iґve been convicted with and
without reason
Tarred and feathered like a piper on
a killing spree
And felt the anger of generations
And been the target of the cheap shots
of authority

So you think you cut me down to size
Well thereґs something you
should realize
Itґs gonna take more than a break
in the law
To make me smile pretty for the
wreckinґ ball

Wonґt beg, wonґt bleed
The end of sacrifice is a threat
to society
Hard line, youґll see
Once youґve made a mark, youґve
made a threat to society

I wasnґt put here to be treated
Like some disease you hoped would go
away if left alone
You can sweep me under the carpet
But, Iґll still infect your need to use me
as a steppinґ stone

So you think you cut me down to size
Well thereґs something you
should realize
Itґs gonna take more than a break
in the law
To make me smile pretty for the
wreckinґ ball

Wonґt beg, wonґt bleed
The end of sacrifice is a threat
to society
Hard line, youґll see
Once youґve made a mark, youґve
made a threat to society

So you think you cut me down to size
Well thereґs something you
should realize
Itґs gonna take more than a break
in the law
To make me smile pretty for the
wreckinґ ball
