What we're dealing with here is a total lack of respect for the law
I'm the law and you can't beat the law (Note)
I'm the law and you can't beat the law
I'm the law and you can't beat the law
Fuck 'em and their law

Crack down at sundown
Fuck 'em and their law

    General CommentActually the song was a direct response to an Act of Parliament prohibiting large-scale raves in the mid 90s. Hence "crackdown at sundown".

    General CommentThis song is about the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act passed in the UK in 1994, which basically restricted the rights and increased penalties of various practices which the right-wing viewed as dangerous, like squatting, various forms of activism, raves, and so on. So this song is a reaction both to the direct "crackdown" against ravers, but also against the suppression of the individual's freedoms.

    General CommentThis has to be my favourite Prodigy song - the beats are just mind-blowing.

    The lyrics actually are:

    "What we're dealing with here is a total lack of respect for the law"

    I'm the law, and you can't breach the law

    Fuck 'em, and their law

    Crackdown at sundown

    General CommentA great tune and yeh the guitar riff blends well with the beats. Check out the two performances of Their Law on the The Singles DVD, Gizz Butt the guitarist featured in both and toured with The Prodigy between 96 and 97 plays the guitar riff really good and adds that punky look to the band. The lyrics are about the giving two fingers to the law in terms of the crap laws which come out which are pretty meaningless and just cause trouble in itself. Politicans need to listen to real people instead of their own.

    General CommentI always thought it was "Fuck the law that you can't restore" instead of "I'm the law, and you can't breach the law".
