jean val jean, the weeping criminal
broken with the weight of compassion
it's hard to hold what you don't deserve
remember your promise to be pure

it's a battle between just and good
what you know is right
what you know you should
will good overcome religion?

it's a battle between grace and pride
will you let it go or draw the knife?
will grace overcome what was done?

goodness fell on me like a spring rain
in this divine through health, i've become
unable to repay my vault to emulate
forgiveness, no longer will i run

it's a battle between just and good
what you know is right
what you know you should
will good overcome religion?

it's a battle between grace and pride
will you let it go or draw the knife?
will grace overcome what was done?

    General CommentJean Val Jean is a character from some book. I guess one of the guys from Edison Glass read that book and got inspired by it.
