They finally caught the killer and the key has been thrown away. … You can erase him from the headlines and go on about your day.
I hope you feel safer and I hope you get more sleep I’ll take it from here as this killer I will keep.
I’ll leave my gun outside the door and holster up my wits I’ll step into a town of hate and knives and balled up fists. I’ll bust the drugs and stop the hit and keep the weak from rape I’ll call the day a good one if we all go home after eight.
I walk alone amongst the criminals, sometimes twenty-two hundred strong No doors to separate us…just a radio to make a call. They see the car I drive to work, they know my name and face And some of us are hunted down when we leave this place.
I do a job that most can’t do and some quit out of fear And I take pride as I serve and protect the ones that you hold dear To get to you they have to go through me and I will not lie down So spare a thought or prayer for us, the keepers of this town…
SEND THIS TO ALL THAT WORK FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS TO LET THEM KNOW THEY ARE IN YOUR THOUGHTS AND TO LET THEM KNOW YOU THANK THEM FOR THE DANGEROUS JOB THEY DO TO KEEP YOU SAFE AT NIGHT.
