They’re trying to build a prison
They’re trying to build a prison

Following the rights movement
You clamped on with your iron fists
Drugs became conveniently
Available for all the kids

Following the rights movement
You clamped on with your iron fists
Drugs became conveniently
Available for all the kids

I buy my crack, might 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
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, might 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
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 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 policy shows
That treatment should be increased
And law enforcement decreased
While abolishing mandatory minimum sentences

All research and successful drug policy shows
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, I 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
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 me, for you and me

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
