Officer Down

Well let me tell you why I don't like cops
well the story starts when my boy Davers got dropped
in the streets
by the car that swerved to the curb
and almost hit me
so Davers flipped him the bird
ya know he wish he didn't
because the car came to a sliding stand and
two men got out and then the shit hit the fan
as they ran
to a man on the streets
they pick him up off his feet
and witnesses just standing around
watching him get beat to the ground

so Davers pleaded and tried to steal away from the man
until his friends on the side came in and gave him a hand
first one in was Rob
with his right hook from way back far
and layed him out
over the hood of the car
and everything was goin, well just as planned
until the two men started screamin
officer down

N one knew that they were the RCMP
because, they were off from duty
had no uniforms or badges to see
to show their true identity
well Rob said they just looked like gangsters to me
and beating up on society
so I had to jump in to set my friends free

well how do you sleep at night
you know that its not right
to get your glory
by pushing people around
you put them down to the ground
but everybody's got the same fuckin 'story
about how ya done nothing for them now
and how you done almost nothing for no one
so get your badge and your gun
and get that man on the run
the one thats done nothing wrong
but you don't seem to care
well it makes me so mad
because it's so unfair
now he's getting charged for assaulting an officer
a middle finger thrown up into the air
and now he has to go to court
and get a lawyer

well in the courtroom I hope the judge speaks
'down with interrogation..
assault and obstruction, the charges that you're facing
I should lock you up and throw away the key'
and Rob said they just looked like gangsters to me
gangsters to me, gangsters to me

That's why I don't like cops
or the RCMP
those fuckin' piggies are just gangsters to me, yea
whatever happened to the 'serve and protect'? no no
you throw your powers around
and you still expect me to take it laying down
down on the ground
for me to take it laying down
down on the ground
down on the ground
