Police Police Me

This song is by Hey Mercedes and appears on the album Loses Control (2003).

The motor buzzes in the basement,
Behind a curtain,
Behind a wall.
Upstairs the crowds have all,
Gathered to see,
How they can make money off tragedy.

Police police me.
It's so easy

Heads hover above podiums;
Nobody understands that they don't stand a chance.
The glow of this show is alarmingly charming.
And the stars are all smiling;
It's disarming.

Police police me.

And all the while,
We're waiting,
For something like a sign,
From the hole of lost control;
From our overmade minds--come on, go.
Goodnight bloodsuckers.
Sleep tight in your traps.
The cheapest trash gets bought so fast
The cops and the criminals,
The safe and the stray--they all mix in the ditches anyway.

Police police me.
