uniontown lyrics – good riddance

when lies serve as subst*tution
a new twist on an old solution
no cause no choice
they took your freedom away

the new rights gotta keep you guessing
a quick close with a signed confession
no rights this fight
is how you’re gonna pay

a child’s tear froma broken heart
another family’s ripped apart
and the streets are empty
down in uniontown
just don’t let them catch you out at night

n*body gets to have it all
the lucky ones only take the fall
it’s a game and they picked your name
and now you’ve been had

you’re just a player in a house of cards
pleading guilty to a lesser charge
you’re no good to anyone
when you’re doing time

it’s hard enough to stay alive
eighteen to twenty five
another town’s locked into a slow decay
with all it’s young men they’re locked away

/ good riddance lyrics
