      Lyrics for System Of A Down - "01. Prison Song"

      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, I 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 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, I 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)

      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, 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
      (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
