Shattered – Julie Matthews
From the album ‘Perfect Mistake’ While and Matthews

The verdict came in and they let him go
And the family hung their heads
He waved to the cameras they’re making him famous
While tearing the truth to shreds

How can we walk away?
Like none of this ever mattered
How can we walk away?
Shattered

We put `em through college, we teach `em the law
But not about wrong and right
They’re selling out justice while lining their pockets
How do they sleep at night?

How do they walk away?
Like none of this ever mattered
How do they walk away?
Shattered – shattered

Shattered like glass thrown on the ground
The innocents let down
Who wake up to the sound of their hearts
Shattered – shattered – shattered

Something gets twisted, the picture gets coloured
And harder to recognise
They wrap up the guilt, the shame and the scandal
And dress it all up in lies

How do they walk away?
Like none of this ever mattered
How do they walk away?
Like none of us ever mattered
How do they walk away?
With justice torn and tattered
How do they walk away?
Shattered – shattered – shattered
