Humanifesto – Make It Stop lyrics

March 15th 2002: Montrealers rallying against police brutality
Are struck down by riot forces, beaten and accused of crimes
For protesting the true offenders

Everyone put down your guns, use your brain, stop the pain
We have to fight for what is right. We'll make it stop, fuck the cops

They claim they're just doing their job as they push your face against the wall
They think that they're above the laws that they enforce, they've gone too far
Cuffing kids for riding skateboards, kissing the ass of the corporate whores
"To serve and protect" the interests of the people wearing the diamond gloves

Forget about the average person, forget about the lives you're hurting
Arrest the people stealing to survive, ignore the ones committing real crimes

But this oppression doesn't end with cops, you can follow it right up to the top
Hoover set up COINTELPRO to kill opposition
(Especially in the black community) to the system
Locked away the Angola 3 and Mumia
Put away for almost thirty years and they're still there
Not a single shred of evidence to keep them behind bars,
No state officials trying to find out who the real killers are
They're happy cuz they've made an example with innocent ones

Keep America dumb
