Police and Thieves
We're going through a tight wind

Police and thieves in the streets (oh yeah)
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be, hear me

And all the crowd comes in day by day
No one stops it in any way
And all the peacemaker turn war officer
Hear what I say

Police and thieves in the streets (oh yeah)
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street (oh yeah)
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be, hear me

And all the crowd comes in day by day
No one stops it in any way
And all the peacemaker turn war officer
Hear what I say

Police, police, police and thieves (oh yeah)
Police, police, police and thieves (oh yeah)
From Genesis (oh yeah)
Police, police, police, police and thieves (oh yeah)
Scaring, fighting the nation (oh yeah)
Shooting, shooting their guns and, guns and ammunition (oh yeah)
(Oh yeah)
Police, police, police and thieves (oh yeah)
Scaring (oh yeah)
Scaring the nation (oh yeah)
Police, police, police and thieves (oh yeah)
Scaring, scaring the nation (oh yeah)
Guns, guns, guns, guns (oh yeah)
(Oh yeah)
Here come, here come, here come, the station is bombed (oh yeah)
Get out get out get out, you people
If you don't wanna get blown up (oh yeah)
The police, the police, the thieves, the thieves, the thieves (oh yeah)
You got an extra grand
And you are trapped in the middle of police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
Police, police, police, police
