A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home
A world of violent rage
Having never seen the color of my father's eyes
I tried to grip my family

I gotta nine, a sign, a set and now I gotta name
Read my writing on the wall
Death is on my side, suicide!
A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home
A world of violent rage
Having never seen the color of my father's eyes
I tried to grip my family

I gotta nine, a sign, a set and now I gotta name
Read my writing on the wall
Caught between my culture and the system, genocide!
Read my writing on the wall
If ignorance is bliss, then knock the smile off my face

We settle for nothing later
And we'll settle for nothing later
We settle for nothing later
And we'll settle for nothing later
If we don't take action now
We settle for nothing now
If we don't take action now
We'll settle for nothing now
