Don't Ask Why
Lyrics
All the children come out n' play
They all grow older
Each in different ways
Some are lucky
Some steeped in pain
Some need more time
Some find a way
Before they're gone

Once upon a time I'm believin' fine
The men in blue protectin' mine
With big big guns n' clubs they love to wear
Kill n' beat day or night
Tell the DA he makes it right

Don't you dare ask why
Don't you ever ask why
Don't ask why

Law n'order a sellin' game
For those who make a livin' without shame
Thinkin' rights mean only what is left

News releases cover malfeasance
Court politics personality teasers
For justice don't hold your breath

Don't you dare ask why
Don't you ever ask why
Don't ask why

The PD is hard unforgivin' for some
Someone's daughter, someone's son
Someone's everything, someone's light
Someone's sunshine in the night
Before they're gone

Don't you dare ask why
Don't you ever ask why
Don't ask why

Keep on trustin' everything said
Everything done beatin' n' dead
Just another way freedom
Is a lie in your head

If you find yourself at the end of his gun
Or gettin' a beatin' before you run
Remember your rights are done

You say there's good n' some are bad
Who is who in a world gone mad?
Doesn't matter to them they're tight

Bang bang bang beat beat beat
He do some beatin' or takes out the heat

Don't you dare ask why
Don't you ever ask why
Don't ask why
