We take pride in our freedom, we take pride in our rights
But if you stand up for equality, it’s the cops who’ll start the fights
Those power tripping bastards, they know they’ve got it good
But they’ve left behind the values, for which this nation stood
They tell us that their mission is to serve and to protect
But from what I’ve seen of what they’ve done, I would definitely object

I can only take so much of their trampling on my head
If they silence my opinion, then I might as well be dead

If I can’t say the things I want to say
Then lock me in the nick and throw the key away
Lock me in the nick, lock me in the nick
Far away from all your bullshit
Throw away the key, throw away the key
Despite what you say I am not free

They bring riots guns and tear gas to a peaceful war protest
That they start that shit for the sake of it, I certainly do detest
And at Mardi Gras they stood aside, and let a young man die
They never raised a fucking hand, it makes me wonder why
They’ll throw down on the lower class, who possess a legitimate bitch
While they’re lining all their pockets from the coffers of the rich

I can only take so much of their trampling on my head
If they silence my opinion, then I might as well be dead

If I can’t say the things I want to say
Then lock me in the nick and throw the key away
Lock me in the nick, lock me in the nick
Far away from all your bullshit
Throw away the key, throw away the key
Despite what you say I am not free
