Nuclear Furniture

When Community defends itself.


justice
Something must be done about the lone man
Gun concealed to carry out his heart of stone plan
He is eaten up with hate
Got your attention far too late
Could you have stopped him if you'd known beforehand

He seemed like such a nice guy to his neighbors
Kept to himself and never bothered them with favors
Nobody ever knew him
There was nobody to see through him
He was left alone to plan the death of his betrayers

Who's gonna be the hangman
Who's gonna be the judge
Who's gonna cast the first stone
Who'll settle up this grudge

It's so obvious the man is guilty
Tell me who is capable of showing any pity
Can anybody name the real assassin

No one's gonna take responsibility
How did this man come out of our society
Could our intervention
Have prevented his intention
Well you know he's gonna plead insanity

Who's gonna be the hangman
Who's gonna be the judge
Who's gonna cast the first stone
Who'll settle up this grudge

Who's gonna be the hangman
Who's gonna be the judge
Who's gonna cast the first stone
Who'll settle up this grudge

It's so obvious the man is guilty
Now tell me who is capable showing any pity
Can anybody name the real assassin ..
