Song of the Moment: Lawless One

This was apparently written a while ago, but then there's been plenty of time - decades - to write about Jon Burge.

Song: Lawless One

Length: 3:28

Band: I Lost Control

Label: Unsigned

Next Show: July 6, 8 p.m., 21+/Ronny's, 2101 N. California Ave.




You wanna talk about Jon Burge
we got plenty of time
all the boys at the precinct
they all standing on the line

You wanna talk about justice
here's a different point of view
let's not go chasing rainbows
my colors are black and blue

I'm society's son
I'm the lawless one
I'm the lawless one

You ever heard of a curfew
I'll have to take you downtown
but there's plenty of room in the back seat
maybe I'll drive you around

Gonna run through some red lights
adrenaline fast in his car
wanna be the boys in the movies
maybe it's time to suck on a star

I'm society's son
I'm the lawless one
I'm the lawless one

I know this here longhair
no, I don't like your looks
harass you by the cracked windscreen
getting paid off by the crooks

I'll stand in the courtroom
hippie, I'll look you in the eye
you, me, the judge and the DA
we'll all agree to the lie

I'm society's son
I'm the lawless one
I'm the lawless one
I'm the lawless one
I'm the lawless one
I'm the lawless one
