lyrics

“Get the f*ck on the sidewalk!”

I got flagged by a badge,
after I stepped off the beaten path,
he told me to step back,
I told him “f” that,

this is my town, not yours,
you don’t intimidate, you mop floors,
and you strayed from the smart course,
allied yourself with the dark side of the force,

he pulled out his blaster,
but I moved much faster,
hopped a fence or two or three,
pulled a few moves to lose the heat,

I had just reached my hood and was
reasonably sure everything was all good, so I
pulled out my keys and unlocked my door when:
“Freeze rebel! Get your ass on the floor!”

It’s SOP, they call it SOP…
That’s SOP, it’s really what they believe…

So mad they can’t see straight,
we went from free, to police state,
overnight, self-defense got over hyped,
the law became power over rights,

freedom of speech meant money,
those who spoke Legalese ran whole countries,
the Hoth Rule was redefined,
to: if you’re not cool, you’re pulled offline,

whole cities went dark,
some ceez even turned their peeps water off,
a lack of empathy know-how,
turning bustling cities into ghost towns,

but where’d they all go to?
Family or jail, those two,
it didn’t seem civil,
they legalized being right, it’s that simple.

That’s SOP, they call it SOP,
that’s SOP, standard operation, proceed.
