Karma Police, arrest this man, he talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge, he's like a detuned radio
Karma Police, arrest this girl, her hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill
But we still crashed her party
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us

Karma Police, I've given all I can, it's not enough
I've given all I can, but we're still on the payroll
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us

And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself

    General Commentshouldn't it be (phew) for a minute there, anyway its not that big of a deal

    Incredible cover, i think its better then the original. He sings the last few lines with alot more passion then radiohead did.

    General Commentnot better then the original but damn close. Howie's voice is amazing on this song. I never thought a cover song could sound so good let alone a Radiohead song. The meaning of this song to me is getting people who annoy u in trouble simply cuz u can.

    General CommentListening to HD, you can tell that Radiohead is a big influence on his sound. Rightfully so, listening to Radiohead is a relifgious experience. I've never heard this cover, but I am definitely interested in checking it out. HD is great live. I saw him in '06 with Tristan Prettyman. He's absolutely intoxicating.
