lyrics

This is an all-too-common story of a prosecutor delivering what has been deemed "justice" by America's War on Drugs. No obstruction of justice is too great if it helps the cause of adding bodies to the prison industrial complex.

lyrics:
I walk in the room. I can see through you. I know what you've done.
What's that you say? A state sponsored mistake? Show me some evidence.
You were just trying to "smoke and chill?" Last time I checked drugs still kill. Are you sure you aren't selling to kids?

For the safety of the children of this fine city, I hereby move
that the defendant be charged with distribution of a Schedule 1 narcotic.

(From the second I walked in the room I knew it was you.
I knew you were done.)

Now it's true, the system's against you.
Now you know the truth must pay rent.
Justice for some. Not justice for all.
The burden of proof is on you. Prove me wrong.
Now you know victimless crimes don't exist you'll do time just as if you're a murderer, rapist, or worse.

So you bought some drugs. You're in big trouble. But don't worry the state will take pity on you, if you help us find your dealer. Just take a look at some photos. Anyone look familiar? No one? Not even this top middle guy.
Objection!
Overruled.
So this man right here. You've seen him before. Could it have been when he was selling you drugs? We gotta get people like him off the street. C'mon you know it was him, and even if it wasn't good riddance.

Now you know you don't stand a chance.
Justice for some. Not justice for all.
The burden of proof is on you. Prove me wrong.
