I take the needle off the record And shove it in my arm Whenever i feel life is Comin' on too strong They left me in a clinic fulla Cynical motha fuckin' bureaucrats And other kinda ding bats Livin on the tracks The tracks in my arm said It all depends which side the tracks your on.

Who can't afford moorhouse Politicians nervous It's the only free service they provide You wanna go inside There's a hot meal waitin' for ya A deal we can score ya On a bed for a night or two Or three or four months.

Because a public defender Can't remember the last time That a brother wasn't treated like an animal. They say they blame it on a song When someone kills a cop What music did they listen to When they bombed iraq? Give me one example so i can take a sample No need to play it backwards If you wanna hear the devil Cause music's not the problem It didn't cause the bombin' But maybe they should listen To the songs of people starving.. (chorus) 'cause it's a crime to be broke in america! It's a crime to smoke dank in america! It's a crime to be black in america! It's a crime to be black in america! It's a crime to be puerto rican African Native american Asian hatian A woman
