Nell'EP intitolato "Crime", dal quale è tratta anche War Crime

Crime
The jury came in eleven to one
They said this man is guilty
Is guilty of killing his son
As judge it was my duty to preside
His family wanted retribution
There was pain
Burning in their eyes

'Cos he's a criminal, criminal
'Cos he's a criminal, criminal
'Cos he's a criminal
And he must die
As I sent him down, down, down
One question did remain
If I kill another
Am I not the same?

I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye
I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye

The shouts for justice
As the needle hit his veins
Were muted by the sobbing
A mother sobbing as her child lay slain
We told them death would bring
Peace into their hearts
But now the hurt is doubled
Another family torn apart

'Cos he's a criminal, criminal
'Cos he's a criminal, criminal
'Cos he's a criminal
And he had died
We had sent him down, down, down
And nothing did remain
Instead of closure
There was only pain

I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye
I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye
I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye
I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye
I have done no crime
Though I sent a man to die
Tooth for tooth
And eye for eye
I have done no crime...
