Anti-flag – Outbreak lyrics

A black man driving down the street one day
Pulled over by racist boys in blue in Brentwood, PA
There's no real reason, they don't have any right
Driving in a neighborhood that's reigned by whites
It's just that in their eyes he's not the correct shade of white...
Ain't healthy for a black man trying to live a lengthy life

All those cops they walked off free, but him he's in a grave
His name is Johnny Gammage, on of thousands they have slain
We've got no rights....
... when cops can kill
... we live in fear
It's not right....
Patrol man cruising in his car at night
Just looking for some homeys he can rough up in a fight
Pulled over 3 kids in a total rage
His back up came & they're all acting tough
Next thing you know there's bodies all over the place
The cops they did it just cause those kids color and their age
3 kids vs. 6 or 7 cops all armed with billy clubs
They say "that's not the truth", but this happens every fucking day!!!

... when cops can kill
We've got no right. ....
It's not right...

... we live in fear
Fear of what you're gonna say, when the cops come gunning your way
Fear of what you're gonna do, when a cop's talking shit to you
Fear of what you shouldn't do, when the cops try to provoke you
Fear that on any given day, the cops should take your life away...

We've got no rights....
They say they're here to keep the peace...
WHAT A BUNCH OF FUCKIN' SHIT!!!!!!

... when cops can kill
... we live in fear
TAKE BACK YOUR RIGHTS!!!It's not right... ....
