The Connection

Behind shields, battle dress clad, thugs hiding behind badges breaking bad,

They steal breath, they steal lives, police looters without a conscience willy-nilly taking lives,

Expert shooters, blue pigs with batons, believing they are above the law so they are out perpetrating crimes,

Upon the red, black and brown, killing in big cities and small towns,

No respect for the citizenry. More cops need to be in the penitentiary,

They show "We the people' no respect or affection so strap them to the chair, throw the switch let them feel the connection.

Show no mercy they don't deserve the luxury of lethal injection.

Amp it up, let the voltage go, let the current flow as much as you desire, they ain't dead until their hair catches fire
