Pantera - The Badge Lyrics

young and dumb, truth and justice, fantasy
fresh out of the academy
five-time loser bust his head, make your day
unless you're paid off then you look away
do you thimk this corruption will ever stop
what makes a person want to be a cop
ran a red light, storm the house and bust the guy
do you like to see his children cry

pick up a hooker and take her for a little ride
but get sucked off on the side
sworn to serve and protect, forget the killing
badge-wearing facist villain
pissed in the street, you bust the guy
do you like to see his children cry

the badge means you suck
a child lies there dead
as you look back, what goes through your head

young and tough, truth and justice, fantasy
fresh out of the academy
five-time loser bust his head, make your day
unless you're paid off then you look away
he burned a flag, storm the house and bust the guy
do you like to see his children cry
ran a red light, take her for a little ride
but get sucked off on the side

the badge means you suck
a child lies there dead
as you look back, what goes through your head

talk to them, you can work it out
you better not even try it
you make a play for his gun
they'll kill you say it was a riot
RIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTT
