(Dedicated to the memory of Brian Deneke)

Each town has its cliques those who don't get along and then there's towns I know where certain kids just don't belong so know your rivals and watch your back 'cause no one's gonna be there when the enemy attacks

Chorus:
When the justice eludes you it's the fortunes of war wouldn't things be different had the tables been turned? If the people won't protect you you must fend for yourself when the justice eludes you it's the fortunes of war

You drove right over him and then you sped away how does it feel to kill and know you didn't pay? So walk away even though a life is gone someday, you'll know the price when god repays you for your wrongs.

    General CommentBrian Deneke was a punk kid from Texas who got in a fight with some jock football player that culminated in the jock running him over with his truck and killing him. The killer got no jailtime, just probation and a fine.
