Then play G G G G over the "yeah, yeah. . ." part, and play chorus chords to the end. Lyrics: (Verse) Why do you have to force yourself with power and control? Why do you have to live your life playing up a role? Intimidating people with your wall of sight and sound, you and your kind destroy our underground. (Bridge) All of the happiness that you have destroyed, all the brutal tactics that you always employ. All the fucking bullshit, when will it ever stop? The comparison is obvious, you're just a fucking cop. (Chorus) Officer-you act like an animal you're out of control. Officer-what the hell is wrong with you? (Verse) Wear a tie if you want to wear a uniform, join the army if you want to conform. Tough guy, big man, do what you can. Whatever you destroy we'll create it again. (Bridge) (Chorus) Please let me know how I'm doing by e-mailing me your comments, questions, suggestions, requests, whatever. Luke
