  • This should be telling you something
    Pushing back against the thin, blue line
    New boots and truncheons
    People want, as people will
    This should be telling you something
    Hold 'em back with a plexiglass shield
    New boots and truncheons

    ...and the streets run red with blood
    and the cops all dress in black
    and they push and push and push
    and I wanna push them back

    New boots, jumpsuits for shock troops
    This should be telling you something
    Bagged-loot, silk suits for rich brutes
    New boots and truncheons
    Old-time discipline is back again
    This should be telling you something
    Tell the flock that God is a republican
    New boots and truncheons

    ...and we've nowhere left to run
    it's scripted from the start
    I don't need bigger guns
    To turn their wooden hearts
