lyrics

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 two million Americans are incarcerated
In the prison system, 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 your taxes paying for your wars
Against the new non-rich
Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
You don't even flinch
All your taxes paying for your wars
Against the new non-rich

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

Approximately 60% of federal drug offenders are subject to mandatory minimum sentences

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)

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

About half of the inmates in federal prisons are serving time for non-violent drug offenses

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)

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
