(feat. Dillinger)

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 destroy
All the brutal tactics that you always emply
All the f*****g bullshit when will it ever stop
The comparison is obvious: you're a f*****g 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 a*****e do what you can
Whatever you destroy we'll create it again
