  • Framed plant portrait
    On the wall
    Christmas commercial
    How many times
    Somebody shouted
    "Last call?"
    And I knew he means it
    At least this night
    Stained white sweater
    Fluorescent light
    One quarter short
    "Get me next time"
    Somebody shouted
    "Get outside"
    And we fell in rank to
    Watch him bolt by
    "Where the fuck is he?"
    "Down the stairs"
    "What did he look like?"
    "Dark and tall"

    Somebody shouted
    "They had it coming"
    "Freeze!"
    Bang!
    Bang!
    "Shoot!"

    Protect you
    Is what they say, but
    Point and shoot
    Is what they do

    Protect you
    Is what they say, but
    Point and shoot
    Is what they do

    When shots are heard
    When lives are lost
    Nobody cares in the ghetto
    For two dead cops
    Off-duty portrait
    Cracked from the cold
    Quadalupe canole
    No permit for fire
    Bears holding hearts
    And some a rose

    Said a police bastard
    "We lost two lives"
    G-train delayed
    "What else is new"
    B-43 dead
    "Called a car"
    Tompkins is blocked
    And there's helicopters
    Floodlights and guards
    Somebody follows you
    Home in the dark
    Can't look back
    All the gates are down
    He could do anything
    There's no one around
    Plant a bag in my pants

    Protect you
    Is what they want, but
    Point and shoot
    Is what they do
    Protect you
    Is what they want, but
    Point and shoot
    Is what they do
    Protect you
    Is what they want, but
    Point and shoot
    Is what they do
    Protect you
    Is what they want, but
    Point and shoot
    Is what they do

    Nobody cares in the ghetto
    For two dead cops Writer/s: ANDREW SAVAGE, AUSTIN BROWN, MAXWELL SAVAGE, SEAN YEATON
