lyrics

I know why they're cruel, man
Because they're lost
Dehumanizing rules
When his blood is poured across

Some will squander lives in this city
Because all they know is how to steal
Prison bound two days the county
Looking too dark to get a deal

Some get set down
Some will settle down

The father met his son
With a broken rib
Street smart immigrant
Class war on the beat again

Some will lose their lives in this city
Because all they know is how to kill
Prison bound still prays in the county
The hustler knows that god will heal

Some get set down
Some will settle down

How hard did you try to outrun
Before you raised the gun
