a loaded gun pointed at our faces
keeps our heads down. we'll blindly throw our hands up
to keep the damage minimal.
"around here, we try to keep our sanity."
aged with transparency becoming visible for the world to see.
stubborn old men with no conscience just authority.
you're just here to protect and serve your money
your uniform means nothing to me.
boot heels on the back of our heads
and mouths full of concrete.
our wrists bound and bleeding
till they force us to the backseat.
undertones of equality
and a future filled with emptiness.
overtones of a police state
in a world becoming loveless.
lie and stretch the law to incarcerate
and fill up privatized prison systems
"around here, it's tough to keep our sanity."
broken windows policies get the job done at election time
profitable and dehumanizing by design.
a heavy war for the citizens
a system put in place to crush our humanity.
we're crushed by the weight
but we still try to keep our sanity.
