13. Police Story
A black man driving down the street one day Pulled over by racist boys in blue in Brentwood, Pa. Theres no reason, they don't have any right It's just that in their eyes he's not the correct shade of white.... Driving in a neighborhood that's reigned by whites Ain't healthy for a black man trying to live a lengthy life All those cops they walked off free, but him he's in a grave His name is Johnny Gammage, one of thousands they have slain We've got no rights..... ....When cops can kill it's not right.... .....we live in fear Patrol man cruising in his car at night Just looking for some homies he can rough up in a fight Pulled over 3 kids in a total rage Next thing that you know there's bodies all over the place His back up came & they're all acting tough 3 kids vs. 6 or 7 cops all armed with billy clubs The cops they did it just cause those kids color and their age They say that's not the truth, but this happens every fucking day!!! We've got no rights.... ....When cops can kill it's not right..... .....we live in fear Fear of what you're gonna do, when a cops talking shit to you Fear of what you're gonna say, when the cops come gunning your way Fear of what you shouldn't do, when the cops try to provoke you Fear that on any given day, the cops could take your life away...... They say they're here, to keep the peace........ WHAT A BUNCH OF FUCKING SHIT!!! We've got no rights... ....when cops can kill it's not right..... ....we live in fear TAKE BACK YOUR RIGHTS!!!
