I didn't start no violence
I didn't try to fight it
But with nowhere to go and nowhere to hide
They say that I incited a riot

Face down on the cold concrete
Where the cops beat and batter me
They got their guns drawn, fingers on the trigger
The crowd's thinning out, things are getting grimmer

They said you got no rights, you're a punk
Mohawk, tattoos, kid you're fucked
You can make your phonecall
But make it in handcuffs

I didn't start no violence
I didn't try to fight it
But with nowhere to go and nowhere to hide
They say that I incited a riot

Now I'm stuck in this cold dark cell
I called up my friends to post my bail
I said that I was wrongly accused
I was wrongly beaten and wrongly abused

They said I got no rights, I'm a punk
Mohawk, tattoos, I guess I'm fucked
You can make your phonecall
But make it in handcuffs

I didn't start no violence
I didn't try to fight it
But with nowhere to go and nowhere to hide
They say that I incited a riot

    General CommentI heard Daniel Dart on a radio show talking about this song and he said that Time Again was playing a show at the troubadour in West Hollywood and a riot started. The cops showed up and he was beaten and then arrested.

    General CommentI figured it was about being judgemental?
