Lyrics

Ganglord
The police are kicking their way into my house
And haunting me, taunting me
Wanting me to break their laws

Ganglord
The police are kicking their way into my house
And haunting me, taunting me
Wanting me to break their laws

And I'm turning to you to save me
And I'm turning to you to save me

Ganglord
The police are grinding me into the ground
The headless pack are back
Small-boy jokes and loaded guns

Ganglord
The police are grinding me into the ground
The headless pack are back
Small boy jokes and loaded guns

And I'm turning to you to save me
And I'm turning to you to save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
To save me
Save me

To save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
To save me

Ganglord
There's a clock on the wall
Making fun of us all

Ganglord
The clock on the wall
Makes a joke of us all

And I'm turning to you to save me
And I'm turning to you to save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
To save me
Save me

To save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
Save me
To save me

Ganglord
Remember, the police can always be bribed

Ganglord
Remember, the police can always be bribed

They say:
   "To protect and to serve"

But what they really mean to say is:
  "Get back to the ghetto
   The ghetto
   Get back to the ghetto
   The ghetto
   Get yourself back to the ghetto
   The ghetto
   Get yourself back to the ghetto
   The ghetto
   Get yourself back to the ghetto"
