Freedom is a state of mind, a mind is a state of being,
Stay the fuck out of my mind and my being.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em they divide and deceive.


I don't cry when the police die, cuz they probably deserved it.
Run around with a badge and a gun, and they goddamned fuck with everyone.
Enforce rules made by fools, violence and fear their tools
They dress to oppress, with the laws they arrest and they leave us powerless.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em they divide and deceive.


We have created a reality based on fear, where the terrorist ,the gangster and the police
can take away your freedom, your sense of security at any time.

But

I don't cry when a gangster dies, cuz he probably deserved it.
Run around with a bag and a gun and they goddamned fuck with everyone.
Enforce rules made by fools, violence and fear their tools
They dress to oppress, thinking fear is respect and they leave us powerless.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em they divide and deceive.


A society which incarcerates it's own population for any minor infraction, of which there are
hundreds of thousands of pages upon pages of laws, and reasons for the district attorneys, under
local jurisdictions and the justice system, to put it's entire force on removing an individual from his
family connection, is one separated from the tribal earth

I don't cry when a terrorist dies, cuz he probably deserved it.
Run around with a bomb and a gun, and they goddamned fuck with everyone.
Enforce rules made by fools, violence and fear their tools
Bomb souls from the sky and a mother, she cries as she watch her babies die.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em got 'em on a short leash.

I don't fault the police, cuz the people that run 'em they divide and deceive.

    General Commentthis is probably the first rock/metal/whatever song i heard and really liked, it was on an old metal-hammer cd that i stole from my brother and took on a school trip to germany, and this is one of few songs on that cd i still remember well! I think it makes quite a few fair points.
