Circumventing circuses
Lamenting in protest
To visible police
Presence sponsored fear
Batallions of riot police
With rubber bullet kisses
Baton courtesies
Service with a smile

Beyond the staples center you can see America
With it's tired poor avenging disgrace
Peaceful loving youth against the brutality
Of plastic existence

Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around

A rush of words
Pleading to disperse
Upon your naked walls, alive
A political call
The fall guy accord
We can't afford to be neutral on a moving train

Beyond the staples center you can see America
With it's tired poor avenging disgrace
Peaceful loving youth against the brutality
Of plastic existence

Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around

Push them around
A deer dance, invitation to peace
War staring you in the face, dressed in black
With a helmet, fierce
Trained and appropriate for the malcontents
For the disproportioned malcontents.
The little boy smiled, it'll all be well
I say, the little boy smiled, it'll all be well

Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Pushing little children
With their fully automatics
They like to push the weak around
Push the weak around
Push the weak around
Push the weak around
They like to push the weak around.

    This is about how America treats its minorities unfairly. "Trained and appropriate for the malcontents" says how it hides the deceit in any way necessary.

    yeah, its all about police brutality, the children are citizens that cant defend themselves physically and against the system of the country.

    It's about the Armenian genocide, or genocide altogether. or the Rodney King trial. "Beyond the Staples Center..." it means california where the major riots started.
