lyrics

GOOD COP - LYRICS

All black when I spit darts out the heart
Of the truth seek lions in the jungle
You'd make a great cop is a slur
I'd concur you fit the designated description
Your garb is colours, a gang with a tool
Truncheon or taser to brandish the rules
The law, just saw a lawful killing
What kind of law protects my skin kin?
I can spray back with a lyric and yes
My light skin can award me privilege
Just like a cop who can't be a criminal
Just like a cop not talkin individuals
It's a whole army of the state designed to
Enforce the gap between rich and poor dudes
And that's why I say all cops are bastards
Even if you mean well you're still a ras claat bastard

Hold tight all the ravers, this ones for Stephen, Mark, Rash and Costa
No such thing as a good cop, that's an oxymoron like good grief
Good Cop, Bad Cop, ACAB Standard, No such thing as a good cop still
Good Cop, Bad Cop, ACAB Standard, No such thing as a good cop

Blue Lines, hear si, ren said it 30 years ago with authority
And now we witnessing the same situation
Cause we never learn the four letter word (yeah I said it)
Nazis, stasis, police, what do all these
Have in common? The word is fascism
Yarl's Wood is a concentration camp and our PM
Was the overseer, now do you see it clear?

These days the stage is where a black man can be seen to be doing well
But out in the street you could be Stormzy and they kick in your door for da hell
Forget being respectful cause in their eyes will never be a civilised child
Of an empire who used police power and coercion to rape in the name of commenwealth
These days are getting real boring, same thing all over and over
Again when the next riots come there won't be a next time
Cause look what they did to us last time
When we're resisting you exist in the space in between here and the enemy
Kettle caught a pot black, stop and search wrist snap, time for the kick back!

Hold tight all the ravers, this ones for Stephen, Mark, Rash and Costa
No such thing as a good cop, that's an oxymoron like good grief
Good Cop, Bad Cop, ACAB Standard, No such thing as a good cop still
Good Cop, Bad Cop, ACAB Standard, No such thing as a good cop

ACAB! KICK BACK!
ALL BLACK! AIN'T NO JUSTICE WELL I'M A TAKE THAT!
