So you think you know what terror is
As it stares from the newspaper page
Yeah of course you all know what horror is
It's the rage of the age
Well, intimidation doesn't have a focus
It oozes from every pore
Murder doesn't bother to whisper
In this fucking town it roars

Bodies awash in black bayous
Bibles all full of holes
Kill a captive to capture a criminal
Badges where there gotta to be souls
Badges where there ought to be souls
Badges where there's not any souls

Well, I'd like to be smug and self-righteous
And talk about courts setting criminals free
Get me a nice little home on the Conroe
Where the neighbors are just like me
But every time I see the uniform
I realize I've had good luck
To only read about their latest deeds
And miss a fascist mindfuck

Duck when you see 'em coming
The badge means you suck

A black man just back from 'Nam
His folks thought he was a little bit odd
Jogged at night to calm his nerves
Always talking about God
Well a black man running in the evening
To a cop is a nigger crook
They had two loaded revolvers
Milton had just one book
But he didn't had a chance to convert them
Cause they wouldn't take a second look
It took 8 shots to stop Milton Glover
And his goddamn holy book

Duck when you see 'em coming
Cause the badge means you suck

Sprinkle bodies with thrown down revolvers
Cover court transcripts with shit
And if by chance you get found guilty
Well you'll still get away with it
The men who killed Joe Torres
Never went to jail
The sniper that picked off Carl Hampton
Never paid any bail
Well, the killers of Milton Glover
They might be pulling you over tonight
And if you happen to get shot
Well I guess you started the fight
Yeah I guess you started the fight
Well they said you started the fight

Bodies awash in black bayous
Bibles all full of holes
Kill a captive to capture a criminal
Badges where there ought to be souls

Well there's too much counterfeit money
I don't need to pass no buck
Gonna coin me a new slogan
The badge means you suck
The badge means you're fucked
The badge means you suck
