You spend most of your life in a fight with crime
You've been outgunned, outmanned, and working overtime
But you're the one who's been assigned
So it's up to you on the THIN BLUE LINE

Well, you do it for your friends and the ones you love
Or maybe for the One who called you from above
Whether it's fate or by design
Now it's up to you on the THIN BLUE LINE

Or for the ones who went before you
In serving their fellow man
You honor the memory of them
Doing the best you can
For the mothers and the daughters,
The sisters and the brothers,
Fathers and sons
Who gave their lives in the battle
Still to be won

When you strap on your gun and buckle your belt
Take a moment to feel the pride that others have felt
Cause when you head on out, you're bound to find
The evidence of danger, at the very first sign
Cause it's up to you on the THIN BLUE LINE
Yeah, it's up to you on the THIN BLUE LINE
