The Lyrics

This is an anthem for all those investigative journalists who have refused to divulge their sources

The law is my side
You know you're wasting your time
It's not a question of pride
I've put my life on the line
You know you're bound to fail
And I'm telling you why
you put my ass in jail
You still won't get no reply


Because my lips are sealed
I can never betray
My source cannot be revealed
Those guys will blow him away
You knew it right from the start
You'd just be feedin my fire
There will be no turning back
I'll take it down to the wire


You'll never make me . No
You'll never shake me no
You'll never break me
You'll never take me
The answer's no


You know I'll never give in
No matter how hard you try
Your fancy lawyers can't win
Let's let the judges decide
The press will not be free
If you guys get your way
So much for liberty
A price I just won't pay

Repeat Middle 8
Repeat chorus
