Before The Law Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Pin-balling on Broadway
And snagged for something I'd never say
Big fat man in a dark blue suit
Innocence had gotten in his way
That's when I knew I was before the law
I knew how to run, they'd teach me how to crawl
Talking 'bout humanity
in terms of chain and leather
Red books, blackbook, gold-bound books and more
We should have talked about the weather
Skating on a frozen lake
Snow men and women on the make
Watching those mermaids through a sheet of ice
Praying for a frozen Christ
Before the law, the ghost had answered me
Before the law, was LAW, and we were free
Before the law, I'd heard the door was mine
I've been sitting here for a long, long time
