Civilian - Michael lyrics

The curb descends to the street Where fifty men at least Are stopped by a flashing hand And slurring their speech Pedestrians and cops Will gladly shrug them off For every man is safe If he's white or he's straight Pardoned sin makes one man grin And the rest of us pick up the pieces The bro's are talking sh** about the government The half baked thoughts of a desperate prince Raising your gla** to clear your conscience You said what you said because you meant it You could have known but wouldn't have cared What's it to you? You know life isn't fair Michael plays the queen With married men discretely Says, "Nothing good comes free" And he drops to his knees Until one night he was drugged By a client that he loved His sense of self dissolves And the rapist walks free By the time the empty palm Of the henchman's hand collapsed The pimp eclipsed the ceiling fan "I'm coming back. And that's just the tax." You could have known but wouldn't have cared What's it to you? You know life isn't fair at all The young men were leaving The bar when they saw him Red dress, black eye, high heels They started howling, "Get f**ed, f*ggot" And that's when they lost it You wouldn't believe what privilege costs
