We defer good from bad for you, we do
We defer good from bad
We decide good and bad for you, we do
Are you on our side?

When it comes hard, we know right from wrong
and we know which side we are on.
It's very simple
You only have to choose
which side you're on,
which side you're on
We are the good ones
There will be a law and we will make it,
Yeah, we will make it

We defer friend and foe for you, we do
We defer friend from foe
We decide friend and foe for you, we do
Are you on our side?

When it comes hard, we know right from wrong
and we know which side we are on.
It's very simple
You only have to choose
which side you're on,
which side you're on
We are the good ones
There will be a law and we will make it
Yeah, we will make it
There will be a law and we will make it
Yeah, we will make it

You know justice depends on your force, your force
and you know we are just
You know justice justifies the wars, the wars
and you know we are just

When it comes hard, we know right from wrong
and we know which side we are on.
It's very simple
You only have to choose
which side you're on,
which side you're on
We are the good ones
There will be a law and we will make it
Yeah, we will make it

    My InterpretationReally great song. Basically plays off of the idea that good and evil is utterly subjective and is just based on whatever "law" you decide is most valid/true. Also relates to humans having the need to fit into a group, sometimes to the point of not thinking for themselves. "We defer good and bad for you / we defer friend and foe for you." The listener is not allowed to think for themselves but are told they must choose "a side," as though good and evil is black and white, but this song is subtly mocking that idea.

    My favorite verse is, "You know justice justifies the wars, the wars / and you know we are just." This points out that humans tend to fall into deciding that their way is "right" and others' ways are "wrong," and use that to justify doing horrific things. Therefore the "good" side is not really good at all, just following a different law.
