"Lock Us Away" lyrics


"Lock Us Away"

Don't support the war on crime
Innocent people are doing time
More and more cops, more and more jails
This solution to crime is going to fail
Don't you see what they're trying to do
They're not concerned with your safety
They want to control you

Congress passes more oppressive laws
Then they lock us away
Wall Street perpetuates poverty
Then they lock us away
The media creates hysteria
Then they lock us away
Soon the whole country will be under martial law
Then they'll lock us all away

People have always been the same
There's always been assholes who should be locked away
Such as murderers, rapists and all the politicians
But now there's people getting locked away for no reason


Incarceration and the death penalty
Do nothing to reduce crime it distracts us
From fighting the social conditions
Which create this insane violence
Such as poverty and racism and sexism and homelessness
The Only way to fight against crime
Is to put human needs before profit

Don't support the war on crime
Innocent people are doing time
We're denied health care, education and housing,
Domestic violence and child abuse is never ending
But none of these atrocities are seen as crime
Neither is sending someone off to war to die
