Police State


Cease and desist

Or else suffer the consequence

We live in a police state

Corruption is rampant

Forces of racists and brutatlity reign

Another innocent gunned down, bring a city to fame

All because of the color of their skin

Or the religion they support

There is no equality anymore

Innocent until proven guilty

Is just a thought of the past

Shoot first, ask questions later

And if you do not obey


You're under arrest

Is the final words they will ever say

Before the bullets rip your chest

And you are in a pool of your own blood

Pain, but not long, as the world fades to black

Black like the skin of the profiled

And defiled they lay, the innocent that is

And the peaceful protestors are gassed out and beaten

As the police state reigns on
