Millions lie in prison in the land of the free

And there’s millions spent each time we turn that final key

More are in our prisons than teachers in high schools

Do we think the world respects that? If we do then we’re just fools.

 

Chorus

 

More than half the people in this rich and blessed land

Still believe in killer punishment; it’s time to take a stand!
