How many times did you call me?
And I knew it was late, I left everybody
But I never went straight

I don't claim to be guilty but I do understand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand

Now my heart's like a blister
From doing what I do
If the moon has a sister
It's got to be you

I'm going to miss you forever though it's not what I planned
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand

Now the deal has been dirty
Since dirty began
I'm not asking for mercy
Not from the man

You just don't ask for mercy, while you're still on the stand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand

I don't claim to be guilty, guilty's too grand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand

That's all I can say, baby that's all I can say
It wasn't for nothing that they put me away
I fell with my angel down the chain of command

There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
There's a law, there's an arm, there's a hand
