Prison song

They’re
tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison

Following
the rights movements
You clamped on with your iron fists
Drugs became
conveniently
Available for all the kids
Following the rights
movements
You clamped on with your iron fists
Drugs became
conveniently
Available for all the kids
Ooh, I buy my crack, my smack, my
bitch
Right here in Hollywood

{Nearly two million Americans are
incarcerated in the prison system
Prison system of the U.S.}

They’re
tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’
to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
For you and me to live
in
Another prison system
Another prison system
Another prison
system
For you and me

Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
You
don’t even flinch
All our taxes paying for your wars
Against the new non
rich
Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
You don’t even flinch
All
our taxes paying for your wars
Against the new non rich
Ooh, I buy my
crack, my smack, my bitch
Right here in Hollywood

{The percentage of
Americans in the prison system
Prison system has doubled since
1985}

They’re tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a
prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a
prison
For you and me to live in
Another prison system

Another prison system
Another prison system
For you and me
Who
for?
Who for?
Who for?
You and I
They’re tryin’ to build a
prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a
prison
For you and me
Oh baby you and
me

Why?
All research and successful
drug policy shows
That treatment should be increased
Why?
And law
enforcement decreased
While abolishing mandatory minimum
sentences
Why?
All research and successful drug policy shows
That
treatment should be increased
Why?
And law enforcement decreased
While

Utilizing drugs to pay for secret
wars around the world
Drugs are now your global policy
Now you police the globe
Ooh, I buy my crack, my smack,
my bitch
Right here in Hollywood

Drug money is used to rig elections
And train
brutal corporate sponsored
Dictators around the world

They’re tryin’
to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build
a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
For you and me to live
in
Another prison system
Another prison system
Another prison
system
For you and me
Who for?
Who for?
Who for?
You and
I
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
They’re tryin’ to build a
prison
They’re tryin’ to build a prison
For you and me
Oh baby you and
me
