lyrics

You lost your right to live when they sentenced you to prison
Feeling cold and empty, gutted like from an incision
Some fall back on religion, last refuge of a free faller
(And mommas not there) And you can't call her
So Holla If You Hear Me through the cell well
It's like being trapped in hell, I'm trying to tell y'all
When you lock men in cages they can turn to animals
Contagious, dog eat dog, rabid cannibals
Start off in the bullpen where you'll spend many hours
Sleeping on a concrete floor, ain't getting any showers
Stomach growing from the phony two-tone bologna that they feed you
Leave you lonely in a room full of thousands
Pounding on the blocks with your head, wishing your dead
Instead of buried alive inside a nine by ten
Wishing you were kissing your children or with your girl
Instead of dreaming of what life's like back in the world
Inside these cement caves, live modern day slaves
Working for corporations that pay a dollar a day
It's takes cash to make, so it goes to where the monies are
Build more prisons, I give them another twenty bars
