The Lyrics

Any similarities to any real persons, living and especially dead, is purely coincidental!
Hey punk, what'cha doin' down there?
Dead on the pavement tonight
With me standing above you.
I was out patroling solo,
I heard my dispatcher's BOLO,
Yelled to you, "Freeze
And get down on your knees!" You kept coming....
"Gentle Giant" shot three times
In the torso 'cause you grabbed my piece!
Twice in the skull
Cause you wouldn't let go!
You dumb street thug! (Bang! Bang! Bang!)
Means you crossed the line for deadly force.
Oh, twice in the skull (Pop! Pop!)
Means a tag on your toe!

You'd just knocked over a convenience store,
Beat up the clerk and then fled
With a box of cigars.
Minutes after that I saw you,
Blocked your way and tried to warn you.
Then you punched my head,
Left your fingerprints inside my car.
"Gentle Giant" shot three times
In the torso 'cause you grabbed my piece!
Mmm, twice in the skull
Cause you wouldn't let go!
You dumb street thug! (Bang! Bang! Bang!)
Means you crossed the line for deadly force.
Whoa, twice in the skull (Pop! Pop!)
Means a tag on your toe!

I was out patroling solo,
I heard my dispatcher's BOLO,
Yelled to you, "Freeze
And get down on your knees!" You kept coming....
"Gentle Giant" shot three times
In the torso 'cause you grabbed my piece!
Twice in the skull
Cause you wouldn't let go!
(Kept coming, kept coming, kept coming)
You dumb street thug! (Bang! Bang! Bang!)
Means you crossed the line for deadly force.
Oh, twice in the skull (Pop! Pop!)
Means a tag on your toe!

The Kansas City TV stations are covering the anniversary of last year's riots by replaying old news clips, which, unfortunately, look just like what's happening in Ferguson today. If Michael Brown were shot by a fellow gangbanger, he wouldn't have been more than a 5-second blurb on the morning news in St Louis. He did get a marching band in Kansas City's 2015 memorial service. Still, his memory was overshadowed by the story of a family in Denver that found it's long-lost dog. The whole world is screwed up beyond redemption. But, while we're here, we can at least turn it into a song.
