Whats this song mean, Jandek wrote some Song about The Police.
When I first saw it I thought it was gonna be his tribute to sting and them
but if it is I don't hear it.

Well, Law done some hard things to good folks
ain't no one made a movie of the things it done to me but I liked this one.


but... it just lazy to go around thinkin its all bad
maybe enough of it is and there so many good stories to get me right furious

but sometimes I think I'd a been in even more trouble without the law, in
these parts, than with it.

Well I didn't used to but I sure can get accomodated to living in peace with
people ...

Sounds like that jandek guy wants to provoke the police or something
well I get that 'cause I used to feel that way too and yet sometimes...

I can't afford to be lazy.

Didn't do no good here, I don't want to stay "
Thats you don't know who talking, with a little fair use.
