Police & Thieves
Zara McFarlane Lyrics


Police and thieves in the street
Fightin' the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street
Scarin' the nation with their guns and ammunition

From genesis to revelations, yes
The next generation will be, hear me
All the crimes committed, day by day
No one tried to stop it in any way
All the peacemakers turned war officers
Hear what I say

Police and thieves in the street
Fightin' the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street
Scarin' the nation with their guns and ammunition

All the crimes committed, day by day
No one tried to stop it in any way
All the peacemakers turned war officers
Hear what I say

Police and thieves in the street
Fightin' the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street
Police and thieves in the street
Police and thieves
Police and thieves

Beautiful cover that unfortunately comes at the "right" time.
Originally, Jamaican reggae singer Junior Murvin (along with legendary dub producer Lee “Scratch” Perry) wrote and performed the song to address rampant gang violence and police brutality in late-’70s Kingston, Jamaica.

Never could I imagine a variation on Junior Murvin's song to be so haunting and different, this is amazing. Thanks.
