Used to be a cop but I got to be too jumpy
I used to like to party 'til I coughed up half a lung
But sometimes late at night I hear the beat a-bumping
I reach for my holster and I wake up all alone

    Great song. It reminds me a lot of some of the songs off of Neil Young's Freedom album. It's got that same vibe as "Crime in the City (Sixty to Zero Part I)"
  • Shonna's bass is top notch on this one. [2] I take for granted how gifted of writers these guys are. [2] I was literally going to say exactly those two things. Hell of a bassline and storytelling of the highest order.
  • Shonna's bass is top notch on this one.
  • The video version is better. Does anyone have it?
  • solid.
  • and one of the best songs ever written and played by DBT.
  • by far the best song of 2011
