"Sergeant Politeness" as written by Ken Andrews and Greg Edwards....
They won't ever find out just where I hid them
One-hundred stones that sparkle in darkness
They caught me downtown changing the bus lines
An easy target midday no disguise

Sergeant politeness
Searching for weak points
Caress my ego
Trick me so softly

I only took them to find my way out
The self-infixed freeze that comes from boredom
You see I let them, I let them find me
One-hundred stones that mean nothing to me

I'm so innocent sir that I can't reveal a thing
I'm blind and happy sir to be tortured in this way

Sergeant politeness
I'm so enlightened
Go on molest me
I won't confess now

    General CommentSong reminds me of a police officer or an under cover cop that is spotting a person who they think is on drug, has drugs on them, or know where to get some. He's trying to pretend as if he doesn't know anything the officer's asking him about drug related stuff cause he doesn't want to lose his stash. "Go on molest me, I won't confess now" sounds like when a cop searches you to see if you have anything on you.

    General CommentLike most of the other songs on the album, I think this one is possibly about drugs as well. He's saying that he was easily tempted by the drugs, they seemed to sparkle to him and he thought it would be a way to relieve his boredom, but was possibly more than he bargained for.
