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 ****in' 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. tellin' me what to wear tellin me cut my hair and tryin to convince me that they really really care all about my health and about my wealth but still they built the Stealth 'cause everybody's just lookin out for they self So then I ask 'em can I have a clean needle "Hell no that's illegal!" (chorus) 'Cause it's a crime to be broke in America! and it's a crime to smoke dank in America! (repeat) "Yeah hit those drums now" they lockin' brother's in the poorhouse who can't afford Moorhouse politicians nervous it's the only free service they provide you want to 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. They say they lockin' us up in cells to protect us from ourselves it smells like they got anotha plan in store house or should I say warehouse fulla *****s and other misfits that couldn't turn tricks in the courthouse it's a justice whorehouse (chorus) It's a crime to be broke in America! and it's a crime to be Black in America! But there's a mutiny on the bounty in ever single county we remember Attica but don't forget to pat a few other on the back as a matter of fact sister Asatta Shakur and Geronimo Pratt 'cause Amnesty international is fightin' for political but if your analytical you know it's much more critical than that percentages black is really, really whack can I kick a few facts yes? Sx percent in college from livin on the block twenty five percent in prison the school of hard knocks fifty percent in poverty is livin on the rocks five hundred brothas on a death row box The punishment is capital for those who lack in capital 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 want to 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
