Strike Anywhere - Sunset On 32nd Street
When they broke down the door
And put their guns in the face of your wife and child
And as they pinned you to the floor, did you say
"Officer, I am not resisting you?"
American justice, American dream
Is this what "the other half" means?
Half of our lives dissolved in fear
Half our rights, they disappear
Is our apathy so corrosive?
Where does the cycle start?
Hear the sirens screaming out in the distance
Hold your family close to your heart
American justice, American lies
A war of words that I despise
I wish the good cops, if they exist, the very best
And a bullet for all the
Deliberations, what's the deal?
They fake it, we break it
And take back what they steal
We could rise, black and white
Unbound, and make them pay
For every tear, for every fear
Defend our yesterdays
