blood soak pavement, liquor soak the blood
"person of interest" turns to "armed thug"
float up to dust, through the passing sound
scatter and dodge, they lay us down

police issue glock
aim click pop
smell the powder in the wind
into ashes Gary King
feel hollow point sting, ring out, bullets sing:
"lay his burden down"
turn men to memories, cuz we all could be enemies
they'll lay our burden down
face down on the ground

gunman protected
when he shoots you, he shoots you well
won't wake up with a story to tell
suspect/suspected
do it ourselves when they're not around
lay our burden down
face down on the ground

blood soak pavement, liquor soak the blood
frame up, suspicion, armed thug
float up to dust, through the passing sound
scatter and dodge, they lay us down

gunman protected
when he shot you, he shot you well
didn't wake up with a story to tell
suspect/suspected
life left thru an open eye
bullets fly, people drop and die
barrel and badge

you'll wake up in a cold world today
try hard to dodge the ricochet
