Prison Song Songtext

They're trying to build a prison
They're trying 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

I buy my crack, my smack, my bitch
Right here in Hollywood

Nearly 2 million Americans are incarcerated
In the prison system, prison system of the U.S.

They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
They're trying 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

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 trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison (for you and me to live in)
Another prison system
Another prison system
Another prison system (for you and me)
For you and I, for you and I, for you and I

They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
For you and me
Oh baby, you and me

All research and successful drug policies show
That treatment should be increased
And law enforcement decreased
While abolishing mandatory minimum sentences
All research and successful drug policies show
That treatment should be increased
And law enforcement decreased
While abolishing mandatory minimum sentences

Utilizing drugs to pay for secret wars around the world
Drugs are now your global policy
Now you police the globe

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 trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison (for you and me to live in)
Another prison system
Another prison system
Another prison system (for you and me)
For you and I, for you and I, for you and I

They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
They're trying to build a prison
For you and me
Oh baby, you and me

Love this song – powerful voice against the politics of the US and still up-to-date after more than 10 years.
