Six true sighted witnesses
Suddenly became blind
To the violence of the underworld bosses
Who were standing trial
For killing other crooks
And cooking trash collection books.

Six true sighted witnesses
With sworn affidavits
Impeaching the perpetrators of mayhem
Forgot what they had seen
Saying that they must have been mistaken
With a voice obviously shaken.

Six true sighted witnesses
Saw all too clearly
The consequences of their fate
Were they not able to forget
Everything they had seen
So life continued as it had been.
