Lyrics:
(Verse) Why do you have to force yourself with power and control? Why do
you have to live your life playing up a role? Intimidating people with
your wall of sight and sound, you and your kind destroy our underground.
(Bridge) All of the happiness that you have destroyed, all the brutal
tactics that you always employ. All the fucking bullshit, when will it
ever stop? The comparison is obvious, you're just a fucking cop.
(Chorus) Officer-you act like an animal you're out of control.
Officer-what the hell is wrong with you?
(Verse) Wear a tie if you want to wear a uniform, join the army if you
want to conform. Tough guy, big man, do what you can. Whatever you
destroy we'll create it again.
(Bridge) (Chorus)
