English lyrics

[Soichiro]
There are lines that can't be crossed
There are things you shouldn't do
For you pay too high a cost
And you lose a piece of you

You don't justify the means
In the service of an end
Smashing laws to smithereens
'Til there aren't any
Rules left to break or mend

Set a thief to catch a thief
Trap a liar with a lie
But don't traffic in this grief
In the name of eye for eye

Nothing wrong can turn out right
By saying wrong's all right to do
Men of principle must fight
So the truth that's in
the man that you are stays true

You don't kill someone
As a substitute
You don't load a gun,
Close your eyes, and shoot

You don't kill a man
Just to buy a clue
This is not a plan
Lawmen can pursue

[Light]
Father, you know that I feel as you do
For these lessons I learned at your knee
And I think maybe by working with you
Helping you will be helpful for me

[Light/Soichiro]
You don't kill someone
As a substitute
You don't load a gun,
Close your eyes, and shoot

[Soichiro]
You don't kill a man
Just to read the signs

[Light]
That's no better than
Bad that good defines

[Soichiro]
Never cross these lines

[Light]
Never cross these lines

[Soichiro/Light]
Never cross these lines
