6th Amendment - Lyrics

Been there for a while
They can't hold you
Without a fair and speedy trial
They can't hold you
Hold on my child
They can't hold you
At least
That's what they told you

Supposed to have the right
To a public trial
But impartial jury
Supposed to be speedy
Supposed to be fair
So how then do they explain
The bodies chained to walls
In Chicago's holding square

If you've been there for a while
They can't hold you
Without a fair and speedy trial
They can't hold you
Hold on my child
They can't hold you
Or at least
That's what they told you

They say that someones
Not a so-called ‘citizen'
Who is a citizen
Of this stolen nation
Where the subject fell to
Indefinite attention
In a concrete cell
Awaiting deportation

But if you've been there for a while
They can't hold you
Without a fair a speedy trial
They can't hold you
Hold on my child
They can't hold you
At least
That's what they told you
That's what they told you

They live a life
In active terror
Just because you aren't the same
They say they can hold you forever
Like they never even read
The constitution

But if you've been there for a while
They can't hold you
Without a fair and speedy trial
They can't hold you
Hold on my child
They can't hold you
At least
That's what they told you
That's what they told you
That's what they told you
That's what they told you
That's what they told you
