Lyrics
Say goodbye to the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love
Goodbye to the ones that we love

Violence on the rise
Like a bullet in the sky
Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Kindred spirits sing
For the sick and suffering
The city of damage control
This is how we roll

Say hello to the cops on patrol
Say hello to the cops on patrol
Say hello to the cops on patrol
Say hello to the ones in control

Teach your children well
From the bottom of the well
Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Hear the children sing
For the sick and suffering
The city of damage control
This is how we roll

Violence on the rise
Like a bullet in the sky
Oh lord have mercy on my soul
Kindred spirits sing
For the sick and suffering
The city of damage control
This is how we roll

Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say a prayer for the ones we love
Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love

This is how we...

Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say a prayer for the ones we love
Say a prayer for the ones that we love
Say goodbye to the ones that we love

This is how we...
Song Meaning
"When he wrote this loping track, Armstrong was reacting to images of armored military-style vehicles in the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. 'I was like, 'What country do I live in? How is this different from the Arab Spring?'' One line, 'Teach your children well from the bottom of the well,' is a direct reference to other current events: 'It's thinking of Flint, Michigan, and trying to educate your kids while they're drinking toxic waste,' Armstrong says. 'You can't educate people if they're that desperate.' (Track by Track Guide, Rolling Stone)
