    This has to be their heaven
    For us to have this hell
    They have to be the judges
    To give us life in jail
    They have to be the godhead
    So we can be the demon seed
    They get the best of everything
    We get to have the need
    Their children eat the sweetest fruit
    Ours don't even get a seed
    They get to live the life of riley
    While we suffer their lust and greed
    They live well off of our misery
    While they ignore our beg and plead
    They're living full and pleasured
    While our people only bleed
    Their worst crimes are misdemeanors
    Our crimes don't have a bail
    We die to make their lives a heaven
    While they make ours a living hell.

    This is a deep drop. It is a hellen heaven.

    Treated like a felon.
    We have committed no crime.
    Taking us out like we were standing in line. :injured:

    Killing many ahead of their time.
    Constant struggle.
    Neighborhood rubble.
    All around.


    Not demanding law enough
    We make a fuss.
    But can't seem to bust.
    The spin,the trend or
    the trouble were in.

    Take a stand. It takes votes, guts
    and desire to change the law of the land.
    Take it to the supreme, it is how
    to clean up this house.

    It has to involve the states, so
    by fifty states in this land we
    must relate and form our plan.

    Justice for every woman and man.
    It has to be taken by the police
    of the court, but finding a willing
    soldier to :horse: is hard to do of course.

    But it shouldn't stop us from trying.
    To stop injustice and the law of lying.
    Holding all accountable of the
    laws that has mounted us.

    This is the only way. If I took on the
    course, of being a police of the court.
    This is all I would devote my self to do.

    We have many of our kind.
    Who sit by and don't make a sound.
    Because it isn't popular, to buck the norm.
    The educate themselves, and get caught
    in the circle hell of working for the enemy.


    All who graduated thru this line wrote
    off the cost on our tax dollars we lost.
    But I feel it is time.
    To hold those in our clan.
    To the fire.

    The meek shall inherit the Earth. Like Rome, their time is growing shorter.
