Testo della canzone "Frontier Justice" (Tim Roth feat. Kurt Russell), tratta dall'album Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight
"Frontier Justice" - Tim Roth feat. Kurt Russell
For the sake of my analogy, let's just assume that you did it.
John Ruth wants to take you back to Red Rock to stand trail for murder.
You're found guilty,
The people of Red Rock will hang you in the town square.
And as the hangman, I will perform the execution.
And if all those things end up taking place,
That's what civilized society calls " Justice".
If the relatives and the loved ones of the person you murdered were outside that door right now.
And after busting down that door, they drug you out in the snow and hung you up by the neck, that,
We would be frontier justice.
Now the good part about frontier justice is it's very thirsty quenching.
The bad part is it's apt to be wrong as right.
Not in your case. In your case, you'd have it comin'. But other people, maybe not so much.
But ultimately what's the real difference between the two?
The reel difference is Me...
To me, it doesn't matter what you did.
When I hang you, I will get no satisfaction from your death. It's my job.
I hang you in Red Rock, I move on to the next town, I hang someone else there.
The man who pulls the lever, that breaks your neck will be dispassioned man.
And that dispassion is the very essence of justice.
For justice delivered without dispassion, is always in danger of not being justice.
