Why We Thugs

Why do you think we’re thugs?
From the day we were born,
You taught us to hate ourselves.
You taught us that the rich are good,
And the poor are scum.
In this church of capitalism,
A man’s money is his worth.

And so we hit the road,
We’ll fight with a guy
Though we don’t know why,
Taking what we can and
Struggle for the rest.

And when we fall,
It’s you who profits.
Private prisons make the rich
Whilst the poor stay slaves.

But engineered social conditions
Will not keep us down.
Given the right guidance and love
Would we still be thugs?

We will rise, we will rise,
And though many will die,
We will rise.


So, what do you think?
