The guns of oppression are pointing at you
Looking down the barrel of one tonight
The special squad cars are on red alert
You know the policeman is always right

Blame it on the youth, they always do
Blame it on the youth, we're ready for you

Murder is a crime unless you're a cop
Then it's all to do with duty
I only thought they were there to scare
I never really thought they'd shoot him

If they make a mistake they'll cover it up with some

Ridiculous lie
Morning newspapers gloating on violence
How many more will suffer and die?

Everywhere you go, it's all the same
You're just another pawn in a bigger power game

It's the same all over the world
Justice just isn't fair
On law for them and another for us
They'll strip your dignity bare

Justice is a load of bollox, it really doesn't exist
You're just another target on a policeman's list
