So You Wanna be a cop? (featuring The Stza)

[Stza]

So you wanna be a cop?
so you wanna be on the top
arrestin and shootin' all the kids on the block
incarcerate the youth of the next generation
and you get the high fives at the police station


so you wanna wear blue
and prey on the people
go above the constitution where all men are equal
beat down the poor, the working class core
your a class trading motherfucking rich man's whore


[Stza]

'cuz it's a thin blue line between the love and the hate
if you so choose to cross it you're a nazi for the state
your injustice will crush us, the precious the few
so you wanna be a killer for the red white and blue


you're a bitch to the crown
keep your own people down
you've got nothing to protect
but you're keeping the sect
for your own damn brothers you got no respect
and the killing won't stop when you become a cop

* the worlds getting madder and it ain't gonna stop
it's an uphill battle all the way until we reach the top
you got an answer in your holster
and no question to kill
you got a vision for society
and it's your will

even the summer sun can't make this situation light
you've got the upper hand in a war
when you take away our arms and our means to fight


[Stza]

so you wanna be a cop?
you never stop with your wicked guns going pop
after 41 shots your grinning in the donut shop
your sickening behavior regulates this society
and musters all the sickness & hatred inside of me


so you wanna wear blue?
well you're just the type
got an chip on your shoulder and an itch for a gripe
standing on a raft in an ocean of blood
but you're doin the killing and causing the flood

[Stza]

how can we tolerate this mad abuse of power?
you think a cop is never psycho till he stabs you in the shower
choking v
morning g
L.O.C
we never stop
and your death'll be sweet if ya wanna be a cop


they say the sea is green and the sky is blue
and thats about right because we're below you
you cop an extra attitude when you come down my block
so you wanna be a cop?

you're getting crazier and we're going insane
you can't stop the violence by using the same
you hated your father so you joined the force
and that's exactly what it is, you learn how to force


even the summer sun can't make this situation light
you've got the upper hand in a war
when you take away our arms and our means to fight

    General Commentwell this has to be the worst and most disrespectful song that i have ever heard. its really terrible and i think that this band deserves to die for writing such a horrible song. why are people so god damn ignorant...they must have gotten their crack taken away or something cuz they're pretty pissed off at cops..who do nothing but try to keep people save so anyone who likes this song has some serious problems and is a really really terrible person. my dad is a cop so seeing this stuff is really upsetting but none of you drug addicts could possibly understand that

    General Commentyeah... if you dont like it, then dont come on here bitching about how bad it is. and come to face the fucking facts, not all cops are fucking good cops. and maybe they have had bad expreience with the police. how the fuck would you know, you just are jumping to conclusions, you dont know them, or there lives. and i dont think saying "anyone who likes this song has some serious problems and is a really really terrible person." because fuck, if a song is good musically, then fuck, people can like it. i've never touched drugs in my entire life, but you seem to think anyone who listens to this music does... your the one whos on something my friend. ok, so your dads a cop, and this "upsets" you. i dont see why other peoples business upsets you, obviously you like your "daddy" just a little to much. Dont come on here and complain about shit, you know nothing about, and bitch about the music, and its not even a band, its a solo project. 1 man. thats all. so fuck, just go complain about how good all cops are somewhere else.

    General CommentI think this is actually a Leftover Crack song. There is one song on the morning glory album that starts out with them and switches to another song halfway through which is this by Leftover Crack. Also for saying that someone should die for something as simple as writing a song seems a lot worse than writing a song about killing cops. Seems you're the one that needs your morals checked

    General Commentactually this song was made by the solo project (with some help from the crack rock steady seven) morning glory from ezra Kire(crack is his nick name for his last name but his real name is Kire). Leftover crack and morning glory are one in the same though so really they didn't really cover this song cause you can't cover your OWN song haha. anyways, cops aren't always horrible and bad, and not always sentinals sent out to help us. so to the daddys boy, SHUT THE HELL UP. trust me the law is fucked is swear, my brother was trying to pay some fine or probation shit, and guess what? he went to the court to get the shit over with, and the judge wasn't there because taht rich fuck decided to take a half day off... so guess where he is right now. in jail for trying to avoid GOING to jail. this system isn't for punks. or just for people. alas, does anyone think that INDK will come back? i loved that band.
