how old were you when you figured out
the police don’t fucking care
about you

hey baby i don’t mean to start nothing
but hey baby aren’t the people we’re handing over
all the power to
supposed to fucking know
how to handle a rape case how to
process a rape kit how someone
could anally rape another without lubricant
i mean shouldn’t there be some kind of
fucking informational pamphlet like
“hey, fucker! get off your fucking ass
and protect the people like
you signed up for and don’t you dare
make this about what clothes they were wearing”

hey baby i don’t mean to start nothing
but last time i checked shouldn’t we
do something about how fucking racist stop-and-frisk
has turned out to be
no hate no hate but
isn’t the whole idea of that
to let an officer invade your space your privacy your
basic human rights to walk down a sidewalk unbeaten
or did they really think there’s such a thing
as non-biased profiling
i mean maybe i’m getting upset about
something small, right, it’s not like
a police officer would ever shoot an unarmed boy
In broad daylight

hey baby they protect and serve and i
don’t mean to throw any punches here
but how come when a police officer
grabbed my ass on a train i was supposed
to laugh about it how come
when my daddy refused to show i.d.
they handcuffed him in front of me
how come they’re putting young people
in prison cells
for dealing a little weed
while the people who have committed
rape and murder
walk completely free

hey baby i’ve seen cops
manhandle more of my friends
than actually deal with
real-life threats i mean
now i don’t mean to start nothing
but how exactly can we expect somebody
who spends most of their professional life
just handing out tickets for jaywalking
to act like a sane person when they finally get an opportunity to
stand behind a gun

i mean baby there are plenty on the force who are
good and strong and resent what’s going on
and i don’t mean to sound like
i’ve got bones to pick
when they’re who i’d call in the dark wet night

but baby
i been trained as a teacher, gun-free leader
who is in control of 24 lovable innocents
all of whom i would die for at a moment’s notice

hey baby isn’t the point of protection
that the police would be the ones in this position
so i wouldn’t have to worry about this
hey baby isn’t a police officer supposed to be
the most worthy of respect, somebody
willing to die just so we
can crawl in safe to bed

hey baby i don’t mean to imply that
we’re weaponizing the people who would
kill others just for fun
but hey baby if the police aren’t dying
to protect us
why exactly do we give them a gun?

we have now been accounted for
and it is written on our empty graves
that After everything still I stayed.
And I mean it.
I stayed. I stayed. I stayed.

When you put on your favorite movie for someone and you’re really excited for them to watch it for the first time AND THEY DON’T EVEN PAY ATTENTION TO IT

But once you start thinking of how you can spend your days and nights with them, what their laugh would sound like in the silence of your thoughts, the way your head might rest on their shoulder perfectly, the way their hair would look in the morning with tangled bed sheets, the way their hand would fit in yours, the way they may like a song, the way their smile would be a reason for you to wake up, and how you want to get to know every bit of their soul - it makes you realize how much you want to have them in your life, and how much you are really screwed. »I think of how nice it would be, to get to know every little bit of you.

Can’t go home alone again

Need someone to numb the pain

You’re gone and I gotta stay high

all the time

to keep you off my mind
