The Badge

This song is by Poison Idea and appears on the album Feel The Darkness (1990).

This song has been covered by Pantera under the title "The Badge".
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 fascist 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
Riot

What's behind the badge?
