Justice For All (Reprise)
|Appears In:||Act IV|
Justice For All (Reprise) is the final courtroom song of the musical. Von Karma rages against the court's conclusion to the trial, contrasting with Mia's composed demenor and Phoenix's triumph. It is not made clear how Mia is present at all, as she is not being channeled by Maya, but Phoenix seems to be the only one aware of Mia's presence.
This song is arguably the thesis of the musical, with all the leads present despite the fact that only three characters actually sing.
WHAT TO LISTEN FOR:
Reprises: Anything to Win, Justice for All
Phoenix Wright, Mia Fey,
Manfred von Karma, The Judge
Well, this case is completely clear to me. I see no room for misinterpretation of the facts.
|VON KARMA:||What!? No... no! This courtroom is a disgrace! You! Amateur! It's your fault I'm in this mess!|
Your story is mere conjecture. Within you, I just find
The ramblings of a madman who's completely lost his mind!
You grasp at straws while standing with a condescending grin--
No matter how pathetic, you'll do anything to win!
|VON KARMA:||You're bluffing!|
You haven't got a plan!
You cursed, stupid man!
Like a stubborn, foolish swine,
You merely yell and whine
|MIA:||There are people here who may intimidate you--|
Acting frightening, they could manipulate you.
The observant, though, will find
They merely yell and whine
|VON KARMA/MIA:||And at last, this case will finally unwind!|
|PHOENIX:||Some attorneys are dishonest, they'll do anything to win!|
But now I know that I will not give in!
And I won't stand for lying or accusing anymore--
I know precisely what I'm fighting for!
|PHOENIX:||I fight for truth, I fight for justice.|
I fight for everyone to have a fair chance,
And when faced with tribulation,
I think of my own inspiration--
She taught me to always hold my stance.
|MIA:||So stand wholeheartedly, and keep your goals in sight.|
Continue fighting the good fight!
Give your all...
And firmly make your advance!
|PHOENIX/MIA:||We fight for all! We fight with honor!|
And we will never rest--together, we unite!
For ever since the world's creation, mankind has sought his liberation,
So throughout this litigation, as we pursue purification,
No matter what the situation, we will fulfill our obligation,
For the law's own consecration, for the better of the nation,
For the future of all...
This court finds the defendant, Miles Edgeworth, NOT GUILTY.
