Will nobody listen? Can we please move beyond this simplistic vision?
Of ‘intrinsically bad natured citizens’ and the myth that it’s keeping us safe.
When I see a prison I see an inconsistency,
I see differential treatment, I see widespread inequality
I see a failing system that is grinning in defeat, I see a cycle that nobody’s trying to break, a pattern that’s built to repeat,
They say “when you open up a school, you close a prison door”
Well we keep underfunding education and locking up the poor
And I’m not sure where this is heading
But I know it isn’t great, we turned our heads away and they built a prison state.
“Take me, take me anywhere, I never really cared about this freedom, It was never meant for me
Lead me, lead me to my cell, I deserve to be in hell, there’s your solution, you should lock me up and throw away the key, Eternally. Imprison me.”
