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

All the happiness you have to destroy
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

Officer - you act like an animal you're out of control
Officer - what the hell is wrong with you?

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 will create it again
