lyrics

I remember when I first went to school
They said don't be a joker, don't be a fool
Pledge your allegiance to the red, white and blue
But don't expect your country to do nothing for you
They said your forefathers loved you, but I only had one
And I watched him die in the heat of the sun
Sucking on the bullets of a policeman's gun
Sucking on the bullets of a policeman's gun

I remember when I first hit the road
Running from the lenders of the money I owed
Came to New York, heard a knock at my door
So I crossed another border and I ran some more
They ain't found me yet, no they ain't found me yet
But I'm burning my fingers on my last cigarette
Like I’m sucking on the bullets of a policeman's gun
Sucking on the bullets of a policeman's gun

I remember all the stories I heard
Man's supposed to be free as a bird
But my brother's in jail, my father's dead
I'm tired of living with a price on my head
I just want a chance, a chance to be free
But this country's trying to make a dead man out of me
Sucking on the bullets of a policeman's gun
Sucking on the bullets of a policeman's gun

I gotta get away
I gotta stay away
