The Lyrics Are Below

System of a Down

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 2 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 to live in)

 

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 to live in)

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 show

That treatment should be increased,

And law enforcement decreased,

While abolishing mandatory minimum sentences,

All research and successful drug policy 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 to live in)

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.
