lyrics

Busted
My hands in cuffs
Rusted
From years of service
They've served their purpose
To lock up those of us
With fairy dust
Or some leaf in our pocket
Protecting us from us
And you from you
And me from me
But why should I cop it?
Tossed about by boys in blue
Beaten bruised
These coppers have lost it
I have my dignity
Morality
Integrity
And what I want to eat
Or smoke or breathe
Is solely up to me
Until you try it don't knock it
But here I be
A detainee
A criminal
A threat to society
For smoking weed
Repeat that please?
For smoking weed?
Get fucked

Chorus:
I Just wanted to get dusted
Now I'm getting busted
Quotas on the rise
And cops can't be trusted
Power trip
Branded criminal
I ain't done shit

The laws are skewed
Protect the few
But push those on the fringe
Off edge into debt
More sweat
Paying fines
Doing time
No escape from the daily grind
But check your privilege
Coz the First Australians
Face the highest level of incarceration
No second second thought
Or consideration
That we broke the law
When we took this nation

Chorus

Cops are a problem
Not the solution
We need to change the culture of this institution
Full of tough guys looking for confrontation
They only serve to escalate the situation

Chorus
