Throw Away The Key Lyrics - Awkword


Review The Song (0)



This is Awkword!
It's not just in Iraq or Afghanistan
Syria, Korea, things are messed up here too man
You gotta wake up and pay attention
We have more people in prison here
Than in any other industrialized nation
And most of those people are black and brown
Most of those people are there for drug offenses
And most drug offenses are non violent
Plus, we got privatized prisons
We got big rich man making money
Of a people going up state
Abandoning the cities that we're trying to keep alive
Things aren't right here man, we gotta do something
No more prisons

They just stop them and frisk
sponsored links
You better move real lightly
I heard they got a contest
Ask Bill O'Reilly
Afraid you'll get locked up
They'll throw away the key
They're free to move across the sea
You ain't even free
Still awaiting retrials for drug deals in New York
Overcrowded Louisiana
California it's sport
Chicago is a wasteland
Even colder in the summer
No education programs
Now they murdering each other
Born into prisons
Most ghetto buildings got bars
When you live without shit
You head and worship them cars
The vista from the stoops
Marine billboards you bored
And on the block you got bars
Drug dealers and whores
Father might be gone
Or he's working two jobs
Stay at home's an oxymoron
Moms working too hard
Latchkey kids
No role models no guidance
No homework eat some Mickey Ds
And get into some violence

They come with they cars and they laws and they bars
They come at you sideways no way you'll get off
And your whole life you heard stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls is all that you got
They come with they cars and they laws and they bars
They come at you sideways no way you'll get off
And your whole life you heard stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls is all that you got

I'm sorry Mr. President
I'm sorry Mr. Senator
I'm sorry Mr. Governor
We can't recover her
See this country of ours
See this world of ours
Was never really yours
We just got a little bored
Nowadays you got to deal
With all breeds of all types
I guess you the type right
To type right all uptight
Pause none of us is goblins
Except that one guy
And that was just one story
Told a bunch of damn times
On the real call this the first
Hint of a problem
And when I say some shit's a problem
It's not industry jargon
The problem I'm causing
Gonna have the CIA watching
I've seen them take the damn picture
I bleed for the orphans
The sick and the starving the lost ones
Stuck with no options
It's awesome like pulling people
Straight out of their coffins
See we know it's just us
No justice in this bitch
Rest in peace Ron Arm
Forever elementary rich

They come with they cars and they laws and they bars
They come at you sideways no way you'll get off
And your whole life you heard stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls is all that you got
They come with they cars and they laws and they bars
They come at you sideways no way you'll get off
And your whole life you heard stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls is all that you got

So what we gonna do
That's the question of course
A lot of human beings
Struggled over these thoughts
You got the rules for radicals
The activist handbook
I threw it all away
Let's create our own standard
There are more locked up here
Than anywhere else
Plus most of them on drug charges
Most never dealt
Most of them in jail
Probably there cause they smelt
Weed crimes fill a hell of a lot
Of the damn cells
Stand still we won't
We stand tall we all
Brave enough to say
Enough is enough so come on
Shit ain't hard to tell
Take a little look around
Feel like everyone in prisons
Either black or they brown
And it's kind of hard for me
To be all black and proud
But I been in the damn system
Seen my friends go down
Smell the wretched of the earth
Hit me on the low
And if anybody ask
I pay tax and don't smoke

They come with they cars and they laws and they bars
They come at you sideways no way you'll get off
And your whole life you heard stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls is all that you got
They come with they cars and they laws and they bars
They come at you sideways no way you'll get off
And your whole life you heard stay away from them cops
And your word and your balls is all that you got
