Be a good boy Like you should boy

At 22 he earned his shield A badge a belt a gun to wield

2 months down into his beat A soul infected by the streets

What started as protect & serve Spills into young blood on the curb

Two men dead one body cold The other walks without his soul

They were good boys Aw, such good boys

His silverspoons and golden hair Didn't come from Laissez-faire

Born a politicians son Born to walk on everyone

With eloquence & grace he's taught To play the game just don't caught

He learned to live like daddy said But noble blue blood still bleeds red

He's a good boy Did as he should boy

Johnny learned his best defense To wrap himself in silence

or don the colors black and blue They'll be there when daddys through

His job his pills his endlss painOh god he hates his life again

This worthless brat is just a chore Johnny doesn't live there anymore

Say why,Say why

Who made the rules that broke your back Who smeared your colors into black

What makes a good boy turn so bad Who quelled what little life you had

Who stole the thoughts inside your mind Splintered your dreams and left you blind

Who dullled the brilliance in your soulTangled you up in mute control

Who plays the trite text in your head Some things are better left unsaid

But if you stop and think it through Really it's up to me and you

Who put the roadblocks in your way What kind of hero saves your day

Consequence and it's truth End of your story is up to you

Be a good boy
