lyrics

Softest silk robe
Milk white gloves
Emerald Green eyes
Humble virgin judge

The throne of Olympus
Sits at your hands
The souls of men
Await your command

Let them come in now
The swirl and the rush
Will he make it through
Or will the pressure be too much

He is king now
And precious is time
Handing down the lectures
and taxes and fines

Beginning to your end
Life as the law
Bite behind your every word
The plaintiffs stand and fall

Newly minted magistrate
Renew the clean, make it great
Will you close the book on life?
What unfolds behind those silent eyes?

You must separate life from love
Not everyone is ready to judge

At the end of the day,
Throw your gavel in your cubby
Swallow all your doubts
And pour a drink in the study

The power, the success.
The silk and the throne
You take it on yourself
Behind your verdict, you stand alone
You stand Alone, you stand alone, alone

Newly minted magistrate
Renew the clean, make it great
Will you close the book on life?
What unfolds behind those silent eyes?

You must separate life from love
Not everyone is ready to judge

Oh what a shame, and what a good life he had
Never again will he feel the rain
He must be broken for being bad
(BAD)
Broken (Broken) Broken for bad

Newly minted magistrate
Renew the clean, make it great
Will you close the book on life?
What unfolds behind silent eyes

Will you separate life from love
Not everyone is ready to judge
Stare out the window at the sky
Who should to judge the ones who judge the ones who sentence men to die

The throne of Olympus is at your command
Sword of justice sits firm in your hands
