"Man of Conviction" as written by and Robert Pope Ryan Pope....
God bless here's a man of conviction
With evidence enough to convict him so he stands by the
Side of the victim has strength enough to forgive him

Hopefully nobody saw him hopefully nobody saw him
The means justified by the ending sinner and saint for defending
The bastard by him that is bleeding throws salt in the wounds of the needy the blood from the
Cut that is seething he gasps for the air we are breathing

Hopefully nobody saw him, hopefully nobody saw him
The means justified by the ending, sinner and saint for defending
Our hero is gone
God bless here's a man of conviction
With evidence enough to convict him so he stands by the
Side of the victim has strength enough to forgive him
The bastard by him that is bleeding, throws salt in the wounds of the needy the blood from
The cut that is seething, the gasps for the air we are breathing

Hopefully nobody saw him, hopefully nobody saw him
The means justified by the ending sinner and saint for defending

    General CommentThis song is probably my favorite on The Get Up Kid's latest album Guilt Show. However, I am having trouble understanding the true meaning of this song. It definitly needs more input from people who listen to the album/song. This whole album seems to be about government and history which is pretty cool in my mind. Like the quote from this song "Needs to be justified by the ending " can be going against Machiavelli's reasonings in The Prince, where the means don't have to justify the ending. Interesting.
