I've been pushed so far I'm losing my balance.
Society abuse, it's hard to stay in silence.
A position, taken by the ones who led,
never read the book just listened to the lies you're fed.
Freedom, tell me what the fuck it means.
Reach for the sky and get down on your fucking knees.
A conscience, yeah, it's only what you lack,
stay the hell away and get your hands off my back.

Oh, and they see me in the distance,
they cuff me up and push me down and tell me I'm resistant
Motherfuckers! Yeah, they're lying motherfuckers,
looking for the green and never looking out for others.

Police state
It's what I've come to conclude,
police state,
society abuse.

One day you'll know that none of us are safe,
they want us to stay silent, take the stories to our grave.
And have you noticed, it's never on the news,
another story hidden by the red, white and blue.

(chorus repeats)

I've got a bone to pick with the pigs.
