lyrics

Mom is worried that this town's getting dangerous
Well, that might be true, but they don't call it crime
And they might deny it, but it happens all the time
Small town heroes born to protect and serve,

or schoolyard bullies,
now given power,
and no oversight

This isn't liberty
This isn't justice
You're heaven sent
Above the law and above all judgement

We trusted you
Why would you do this to us?

I can't get over it, how could I?
You're supposed to help us, or was that another lie?
We stare in shock, and watch our rights die
So convinced that you are the good guys

Your heart's in the right place
so you need the credit
and firearms

Now your're on the internet
(Smile for the camera)
beating up the homeless
(Just doing your job)
You scoff at any remarks and say
"It's by the book"
We trusted you

Trigger happy cops
and violent protesters
will gather in the square
to breathe their hate into the air
and as the protest turns to riot
there'll be a man between the cops and crowd
and he'll scream at the top of his lungs:
"CAN WE ALL JUST CALM THE FUCK DOWN"
