I got my black shirt on
I got my black gloves on
I got my ski mask on
This shit's been too long

I got my twelve gauge sawed off
I got my headlights turned off
I'm 'bout to bust some shots off
I'm 'bout to dust some cops off

Cop killer, better you than me
Cop killer, fuck police brutality
Cop killer, I know your family's grievin'
(Fuck 'em)
Cop killer, but tonight we get even

I got my brain on hype
Tonight'll be your night
I got this long-assed knife
And your neck looks just right

My adrenaline's pumpin'
I got my stereo bumpin'
I'm 'bout to kill me somethin'
A pig stopped me for nuthin'

Cop killer, better you than me
Cop killer, fuck police brutality
Cop killer, I know your mama's grievin'
(Fuck her)
Cop killer, but tonight we get even

Die, die, die pig, die
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, yeah

Cop killer, better you than me
I'm a cop killer, fuck police brutality
Cop killer, I know your family's grievin'
(Fuck 'em)
Cop killer, but tonight we get even

Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police, fuck the police
Fuck the police
Fuck the police, break it down

Fuck the police, yeah
Fuck the police for Darryl Gates
Fuck the police for Rodney King
Fuck the police for my dead homies

Fuck the police for your freedom
Fuck the police, don't be a pussy
Fuck the police, have some muthafuckin' courage
Fuck the police, sing along

Cop killer, cop killer, cop killer, cop killer
Cop killer, what you're gonna be when you grown up?
Cop killer, good choice, cop killer
I'm a muthafuckin' cop killer

Cop killer, better you than me
Cop killer, fuck police brutality
Cop killer, I know your mama's grievin'
(Fuck her)

Cop killer, but tonight we get even

    I think it means that he wasn't ready to take a job on the hit series law & order: special victims unit quite yet when he wrote this.

    I believe cop killer shows their anger towards the police and other social issues that black people were living. These consists of poverty, violence, crime rate, turf wars, and etc. The black people were trying to persuade the us government for equality, and the only way to protest is through hip hop music.
