lyrics

The cops they must be busy now
Closing the books on another tale
Dedicated, graveled and rowed
And when I call them on the phone, they say

Crime make no appointment
Leave that to the full moon, silver and thin

Trying to grow into my shirts
A complicated catch, mean and innocent
Protect my peers from the infra-red
You want me well-behaved, yet disheartened?

I still hear the clicks of the silencers
After your dirty gun fell in the mud

They’ve been trained; They don’t want you to be afraid

Gangstarring , White collars, Goth dressings

Post-street modern dollars and cents
Your shoes aren’t made to run where it never stops
Give it up for the cops, Give it up for the cops


When you’re straight ahead and I look left
That creates two versions of the same event
Free-agent walks bully poet
Guilty bystand on friendly fire

Countenance suspicious
How to tell from the looks how the mind works

They’ve been trained; they don’t want you to be afraid

No sequence, turf is fixed, marks and dents

You can go on leaving them alone oh you can still go on you’re so lucky to be on your own
Give it up for the Cops; Give it up for the Cops


They’ve been trained, I can no longer be afraid

Misperceived variance, Love-to-hate

As long as I don’t hurt someone I won’t give up the right to be wrong
And give it up for the cops; give it up for the cops
