"The Law" as written by and Leonard Cohen....
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

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
Tho' it's not what I planned
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

I don't claim to be guilty
Guilty's too grand
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
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
