LET ME PAINT THE SCENE, EARLY MORNING SWEEPS
RYDER TRUCKS, D.E.A., DOGS AND POLICE
55 IN JAIL, SET UP FOR THE KILL
NEWSSTANDS, HEADLINES, READ 'EM AND WEEP

BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON'T CRACK A BEER IN PEACE
BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON'T WALK WITHOUT A LEASH

WHAT DID YOU ACHIEVE SHOOTING FISH IN A BOWL?
ROLLING UP THEIR SLEEVES FOR THE ELDERLY VOTE
THE MONEY THAT THEY WASTE - TRIALS, TAPS AND RAIDS
MONEY YOU AND I GIVE UP EACH TIME WE GET PAID

BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON'T CRACK A BEER IN PEACE
BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON'T WALK WITHOUT A LEASH

THIS ISN'T CRIME PREVENTION
THIS IS ALL ABOUT CONTROL
THEY NEED TO WIN ELECTIONS
SEE RIGHT THROUGH THE STORY TOLD

WHY NOT HOLD A MATCH TO THE BILL OF RIGHTS, CHANGE IT
AS YOU LIKE, SIZED TO FIT A WAR THAT DEFIES CONVENTION

YOU CAN SMOKE OUT OF AN APPLE, RIGHT?
YOU GOING TO RAID THE SUPERMARKET NEXT?
FUCK IT, MAKE A CAN PIPE

BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON'T CRACK A BEER IN PEACE
BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON'T WALK WITHOUT A LEASH
BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON’T HAVE YOUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH
I DO WHAT I WANT – FUCK ME
BEFORE TOO LONG YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO CALL THIS COUNTRY FREE
THOSE DAYS ARE GONE
