copsong lyrics – inquisition

i thank you officer
for treading on us
you step in time
come and look over those
who need the most help in our world
where human kindness is few and far between
where human kindness is few and far between

i won’t be a face in your lineup
you won’t be the wire in my telephone
i won’t be a warm body in a jail cell
locked inside so you can watch me
well
well

here are the words you want me to say
but you don’t stop murdering
law of force if i get in your war
and you don’t stop murdering

take your hands
citizen’s arrest
so i’ll break your hands
citizen’s arrest
i’ll take your hands in this
citizen’s arrest
break your hands
citizen’s arrest

and i won’t be a face in your lineup
you won’t be a wire in my telephone
i won’t be a warm body in a jail cell
locked inside so you can watch me
well

but you don’t stop murdering
you expect submission but these laws
and you don’t stop murdering
hatred a tool in the policemen’s voice
and you don’t stop murdering
forever i will tresp*ss upon you
don’t stop murdering

so i’ll break your hands
citizen’s arrest
i’ll take your hands in this
citizen’s arrest
i’ll break your hands
citizen’s arrest
i’ll break your hands
citizen’s arrest

only the privileged few
but you can get away with anything
provided that we let the government too
provided that we let the government too

only the privileged few
so you can get away with anything
provided that we let the government too
provided that we let the government too

provided that we let the government too [x3]
provided that we let
provided that we let

hatred a tool in the policemen’s voice
and you don’t stop murdering
forever i will tresp*ss upon you
and you don’t stop murdering
you expect submission but these laws
and you don’t stop murdering
forever i will tresp*ss upon you
don’t stop murdering

and don’t you love the police?
