    "Justice Of The Peace" Lyrics

    Iron Maiden

    Have you heard on the news?
    Another let off madman
    Another screw on the loose
    Is it the judge or the badman?

    What's the matter these days?
    No one has the courage to put them away
    Nobody has any faith
    'Cause there's a breakdown of justice and order

    Waiting for justice, waiting for justice of the peace

    Waiting for justice, waiting for justice of the peace

    When I remember back the memories of yesteryear
    (they really say "yesterday")
    With all the friends and all the times
    When people were carefree
    And walking down the street
    When everyone knew everyone
    And all the houses' doors were open
    No had to care; those days are gone
    Those days are gone


    I long for the times when you could
    Wander down the street unharmed
    When people didn't have much money
    But didn't seem to care
    It must be the cynic in me
    But I don't really like things now
    The violence, the attitudes
    Aggression that you see everyday
    A sick society looks the other way
