Power Abuse
authority misuse
they kill and rape
and it won't be on the news
but you're the good one
with a badge and a gun
braggin' how you blasted shots of 41

POLICIA! Line up on the wall!
POLICIA! Beat it out of them
POLICIA! Kill and lie some more!
POLICIA! Conspiracy to cage the poor!

One dead cop
no more doughnut shops
more dead cops
might make the hurting stop

Kill Cops!!!!

    General CommentOn a side not, the "shots of 41" line is reference to the murder of Amadou Diallo by new york police, who fired 41 shots at him as he reached for his wallet outside his home in the bronx!

    General Commentstza mentioned in an interview that this song is not necessarily about killing cops, it's more a political statement to get people thinking and aware of what cops do to people across the country/world and no one knows.. like when he says kill cops it's because cops kill and that's your "freedom"

    General Commentid agree with adrianInvalid, cause he does sing: "more dead cops, might make the hurting stop."

    General CommentIt was a statement to the world saying; the public: watch your ass. Because we can come into your house at any time. you have no more rights anymore. This is a world for big bussiness and if you don't want to play the game you better be aware that you'll end up a prisoner or on the streets. The cops are just like another gang, only they're the biggest. ya' know? It feels fucking hopeless. Fuck the police.
