Anything to Win is the twentieth song in the musical.

[edit] Context

Anything to Win is Manfred von Karma's introductory song. He is introduced as Edgeworth's ruthless mentor, a prosecutor who has not lost a case in over forty years. As made apparent by the title, von Karma will do anything to win, whether or not the defendant is actually guilty.

[edit] Lyrics

VON KARMA
I'm in charge of every trial
I'm always in full control
The judge merely has to smile
To say 'guilty' is his only role
I sustain my own objections
To win the courtroom war
None will interfere with my perfect guilty score
VON KARMA (LATIN CHORUS)
If justice is blind, then I will guide her (Justicia caeca, illa ducenda)
To declare everyone guilty (Peccare non potest)
I simply cannot err (Nunc damnamdum est)
To preserve my perfect record (Craeci pua fama)
I will do what I must (Mea conservanda)
No place in court for truth(Non), peace(Pax), order(Quies), or trust (Veritas, fides)
And perhaps some didn't do it (Etsi damnabitur)
Innocent they may have been (Reum insontem)
But my cases are all perfect, (Curabo ut semper triunfem)
And I'll do anything to win

I've not lost a case in all my years
I bring these pitiful lawyers to tears
In prosecution I have no peers
Manfred von Karma, perfection incarnate (Manfred von Karma, perfection incarnate)
Man is guilty and must pay for his sin
Against me, there is no chance to win
My perfect revenge has yet to begin
Don't cross von Karma, perfection incarnate (Don't cross von Karma, perfection incarnate)
JUDGE [spoken]
Court is now in session for the trial of Miles Edgeworth.
PHOENIX
The defense is ready, Your Honor.

[silence]

JUDGE
Well, it appears that the prosecution is not...
VON KARMA
Silence. I was just taking a meaningful pause before speaking.
JUDGE
I'm so sorry! Um... Do you have an opening statement?
VON KARMA
Decisive evidence, a decisive witness...what else could possibly be required?
[sung]
I'm perfectly prepared
To crush you in my hand
None have I ever spared
Try to save him if you can
But you will surely lose
There's nothing you can do
Your client is now doomed
He will not pull through
VON KARMA (LATIN CHORUS)
If justice is blind, then I will guide her (Justicia caeca, illa ducenda)
To declare everyone guilty (Peccare non potest)
I simply cannot err (Nunc damnamdun est)
To preserve my perfect record (Craeci pua fama)
I will do what I must (Mea conservanda)
No place in court for truth (Non), peace (Pax), order (Quies), or trust (Veritas, fides)
Your defendant will shortly be revealed (Etsi damnabitur)
In his deadly crime and sin (Milesem insontem)
For my case against him is perfect
I'll do anything to win (Curabo ut semper triumfem)
